Chosen by Jane – Pointillist Technique – Day 4

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. 

Today our card comes from Francoise

Meet Daisy Bird one of Francoise’s Spring 2015 Clear Magic stamps. I think that Daisy looks slightly superior.

I love the way that Francoise has coloured Daisy, the dots blend beautifully all over her.

The dots on the stamp makes this a perfect stamp for this technique.

I hope that you enjoy or pointillist cards this week .
