Salvador Dali

I couldn't pass up on the art challenge at Flying Unicorn this month. I've always been into art and studied it at home and school growing up. The hardest part of this challenge for me was picking a favorite artist, but I went with Salvador Dali, the Spanish surrealist, since he's also my husband's favorite, and we have some of  his prints on our walls.
I choose this work of art, The Disintegration of Persistence of Memory, because it's one I don't have, and I love all the clocks and bricks. While working on this I found out that this was Dali's recreation of his famous Persistence of Memory, which I also printed out to scrap in the future. In this version the landscape has been flooded with water. I love the way Dali's crazy mind worked, and the hidden images that can be found in his art! He was eccentric and highly imaginative! I found the melting clocks on-line and printed them out, and stamped and masked the other clocks.
I drew and cut out the tree.
I used my Prima brick stencil to make the outside border, which I drew and cut. Then I used it with gesso and paints to make the bricks coming up from the photo. I've also used brick stamps on here.

I made all the flowers using my Clock Tower Flower Tutorial. I had so much fun working on this piece, that I can't wait to do another!!Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. I love the clock flowers and those melting clocks are over the top! This is certainly a very unique layout, but it really draws you in to take a closer look. This is really a fantastic layout, Andrea!

  2. how wonderful you incorporated all those surrealist effects on your page
