Chosen by Jane – Pointillist Technique – Day 6

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. 

Pam the Pampered Stamper is bringing up the rear this week.

Pam has used the Dreamweaver Thoughtful Fairy

Pam has outlined the image and then added her dots with Sakura Gelly Roll pens. The sky has ben made with the Dreamweaver Picasso one of the most useful tool a paper crafter can have!

I love the way that Pam has added dots to the background and to the Leafy Branch Die.

Pam has not only got dots, she also has texture on her card.

Why not pay Pam the Pampered Stamper a visit, she has loads of Dreamweaver and Stampendous inspiration over on her blog this week.

I hope that we have inspired you to try this technique in your own cards.
