Words, words, words

I'm loving large font words on my art lately.
For this piece I used printed tissue paper I made with paint and stamps and attached it with gel medium. I used my alpha stamps to add the work Listen. I don't know why I used that work. It just came to me so I went with it.
I used a black Uni-Posca Paint pen to darken the word after I stamped it with Archival Ink. Then used Seth Apter's Borderlines stamps set by Impression Obsession on the word plus in a few places here and there on the canvas.  The blue stars were something I found in my stash drawer. I believe they are chipboard painted, wired and beads added.  Once I attached the stars I used some watered down blue paint to the canvas.

I'm definitely going to create more with words. I think I love the idea of one word instead of a quote.
Thanks so much for stopping by! 


  1. What a knock-out piece, Karenliz - I love the large font of Listen, and those blue stars are the perfect touch. Marvellous texture and colour, my friend!

  2. Hi Karenliz, this is another brilliant piece. The texture is amazing and the stars brilliant. The large font really pops out at you, loving it. Thanks for the visit to mine too. Just glad people aren't getting fed up with the Steampunk pics as I did take quite a lot but they are so inspiring. Happy creative weekend, Angela xXx
