May ~ Pointy Pages
Hockey is Canada's sport. Hockey to us is like what baseball or basketball is to the the US. This year our local NHL team, the Edmonton Oilers, is one of the 4 teams left in the Stanley Cup play offs. So I had to do an Edmonton Oilers spread (pages 5 & 6). The team's colours are blue and copper, so I used blue and copper acrylic paint on these pages. On page five, I ripped a photo of the Oilers after a big series win out of the Edmonton Journal newspaper, sealed it with see-thru sticky paper. I added some team facts to the page and added copper wire to the side of the page. For page six, I used the photo that was on the page and added a Stanley Cup on top of the cake.
Here are the Pointy Hat ART Posse (PHAP), Pages 3 & 4 in the May calendar. I wanted to feature PHAP in one of the calendars during this year long project, and May seemed like the perfect time to do so. You can't really see here, but on page four, I used a golden corrigated cardboard background, and used one of the images from the original calendar, which I ripped out of the book. I think it was originally a bishop or something, but I made it into a PHAPer with a polka-dotted dress and pointy hat! "Bringing ART Justice to an Uncreative World" is the Posse's motto, by the way.
