Chosen by Jane – Pointillist Technique – Day 2

This weeks theme has been chosen by Jane, this explanation comes from Wikipedia..

Pointillism /ˈpɔɪntɨlɪzəm/ is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism. The term “Pointillism” was first coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation. The movement Seurat began with this technique is known as Neo-Impressionism. The Divisionists, too, used a similar technique of patterns to form images, though with larger cube-like brushstrokes. 

So today we have Siobhan our Recovering Stampaholic

Siobhan has used the Jumbo Poppy from Stampendous,

it is a beautiful blue colour.

I love the way that Siobhan has added a grey shadow around the floral image.

I think that I like this Pointillist technique, what about you? For more about how Siobhan created this card pop over to The Recovering Stampaholic.
