Mixing It Up-Mid Mod Ocean

Mixing It Up-Mid Mod Ocean

Hello there!  I'm back with some Mid Century Modern Art Inspiration with the Artsy Abstracts Stencil Set! 

I was inspired by these pictures for this one:


The shapes from the first and the colors and idea of a landscape feel from the second are what inspired me about these pics.

I started with a white panel and started with darker to lighter blues for my ocean, brown for my land and then of course yellow for the sun.  I used pixie tape to mask the openings around the one I was using so as not to accidentally get stray marks on my panel.  I added some wavy stripes with a stencil and some of the accents from the Artsy Abstracts stencil set.

Then I stamped some images in black from the Hippo Hooray stamp set.  I let my stamped images and stencil markings stray outside the boundaries of the stenciled areas like so much of the Mid Mod art I found do.

And finally another sentiment from Sunshine and Rainbows!  I may just use that one all month too.  but maybe not tomorrow... wait 'til you see what I've got for you tomorrow!


And here are the colors I used... I really do love this color palette!

Thank you so much for stopping!  I hope you're enjoying my Mid Mod adventure for February!  Come again soon for more Miss Ink Stamps inspiration!
