Hi, I'm Stacey and I'm a newbie.
Just wondering if I could get some constructive criticism on some completed works? I'm still working on building my portfolio and I'm in a bit of a slump. When I found Craftster and this forum, I was all like "Glee!" Y'all are so inspirational! I'm hoping someone here could help me get past my creative block.
*edit* Finally got enough posts to insert the pics. YAY!
Here's some stuff that's fairly indicative of my style and abilities:
This one is a mixed media shadowbox (4"x4") called "Dementia Praecox."
This is a mixed media and altered art piece called "As Time Flies By." I couldn't get the colors right in the pic (the background is a warmer brown than you see here), and the metal objects and vellum made it hard to get a good shot, but this is the best pic I have of it... In the center of the altered tag is a gorgeous vintage photo on vellum, sadly I can't get it to show well in any pic I've taken of it.
And this is also mixed media and altered, called "Yesterday's Child." The pic angle's a little off, but the colors are fairly accurate.
Comments? Criticism? Ideas?
I hope I'm not being too presumptuous, asking for help and being such a "n00b" but I'm in such a slump and don't really know how to challenge myself or get to the next level. Any commentary will help. Thanks!
