SCRIBBLE PICNIC ~ BLACK AND WHITE


With the theme "Black and White" so many things whirled in my mind.  But when I was on my way to get a new haircut, I saw a "black and white" police car and a new idea started stirring.

I wanted to try something completely different from watercolors, so got out my scissors, paper and glue.

I used a large polka-dot sheet of paper for the background.  The black dots are raised..so I liked the texture.  Next layer was a white lace doilie...more texture and a few frills.  A black ring of construction paper, and final a google images of a cartoon black and white police car.  I really enjoyed doing something new.



On the way home from Oregon, I took this picture of a black and white police car from the 1950's that was on display in a little town we passed through.
To see all the black and whites, just click on the Scribble Picnic badge on my sidebar.

    2. Funny you mentioned cartoon. We watched "Who Framed Roger Rabbitt" the other day and they had those cars as cartoons...I think I was born in the wrong era lol...

  4. Wonderful take on the theme, Wanda...it would have been fun to create.

    We don't have Black and White police cars here in Australia but we do have Black and White taxi cabs.

    1. Thanks so much Serena. It was fun finding all the different papers and textures. What color are your police cars?

  5. Such a sweet idea. It is so cute, love that you used an old style.

    Here in Montana I often see all wheel drive SUV police cars. And they are not black and white.

    1. Glad you didn't miss the party. I was thinking my little paper art would make a cute place mat for a little boy's Policeman Birthday Party.

    1. That's really "old school" isn't it with all the digital drawing and painting these days. It was fun.

  10. That's a great way to mix all those textures and patterns with this black and white theme. Funny where we all get our inspiration sometimes isn't it.

    1. It is truly a wonder how each of us see things through our own filters, past, and age. But we all get inspired...and love what comes from it.

    1. The polka dot paper was so cute. The raised dots really gave it pazazze. I would you could have felt it.

  12. Totally original take and application, Wanda. Love that! Well done. now, I only wish you had photographed the piece in focus in stead of a double image (as seen when enlaraging it esp) as it made it harder to see all the wonderful details. Maybe you can replace this for posterity with a sharper image. LOVE that you cut things out and glued it! Wow! Thank you so much, Wanda.

    1. Thanks so much Michael. I'm having trouble with my camera. It just wasn't giving me a good image this time. Will make sure I do a better job in the future.

      It was fun to go back to grade school and play with paper, scissors and glue.
