Anyone for half a pear?

Michelle Ward’s GPP Street Team Crusade No 28 is about “portion control” – using part of an image to create interest and mystery. Last month we were challenged to really explore a shape, I chose the pear. You can see some of the images I created here, here and here. I have kept using last month’s PEAR shape, and have been making new images on watercolour postcards. This way, I get to do the Crusade, and keep up my stock of postcards for sending off quick notes to people. Win win! For these three I used acrylics, gesso and Stazon ink pads, acrylic stamps and handcut stencils and masks.

  1. Cath – these are fab!! I especially like the middle one, with masked pear, filled with text. Very cool at a series – all of them. Thanks for sharing your explorations with the team – fun to see you continuing with the pear!

  2. wonderful images! I’m almost jealous of your pears. I really like the shape a lot, but I haven’t done anything serious with it since my college days.
    I like that you’re making postcards with your shape. I should do something like that with mine. Thanks for the idea.
