    Stickers as Original Art

    I made the circle mesh by using a textured canvas. Used a watercolor brush with several colors to flow into the mesh pattern. I made a sticker out of the circle mesh. With the sticker spray tool, I added different sizes of the mesh circle. I added flowers I had painted and made into stickers. The compositions that can be had with stickers is interesting. I think some have thought of stickers as "cheating", but I see them as an extension of what you create.

    I don't think using stickers is cheating...they are a painting element that you use creatively through their color, value and placement in the composition. I think you did a great job using them effectively. I see in this painting a birds eye view of a lovely table setting with chairs gathered to the side as if some friends just left after sharing some gossip! Of course that's probably not what you intended, but the beauty of this kind of work is that the viewer can make up whatever story they want from it. L

    Lindae, thank you for your kind comments. All art is, after all, imagination.

    Bobbi, I love this one. Really fascinated by the interweaving textures and graphics you have going on here. Really like the grayscale too. Very nice. Love seeing experiments with stickers. There is something wonderful about the screen textures against that pillowed background. I am wondering what qall could be done with the interactions of just the screen textures and how layering them would create complexity and different values and focal points in a grayscale design. Keep on... very interesting.

    Very clever painting. I love the grayscale too, and the quilted effect on the base layer. So many creative ideas all bunched into one very pleasing picture.

    We have funny ideas about cheating and art. I don't think that there any such thing as cheating in art, except straight out plagiarism (and that's not about art.)

    This is great! Very creative and very interesting use of stickers.

    Hi Bobbi, Very inventive, and pretty. I don't understand this "attitude", and I truly feel attitude toward digital art. If someone reads an e-book-is it not still a book? If someone paints a painting with a digital brush, is it not a painting? Sure, there are ways of copying, but there are those of us that draw and paint, and create techniques straight from imagination. This is what I enjoy the most.
