In keeping with that, I tried out my new stamp that came yesterday and 2 new stencils. I started playing and trying out what would happen.
I started with a background done in pastel, with a big flower on it. I used the stencils to apply some structure paste. Played with some colour, glimmer mist and acryllic paints. Added a white wash and completely lost the flower. I added some flowers I made for another project, but later deceided I didn't need. They fit perfectly with the colours on this page.
I stamped the butterflies on a seperate piece of paper, tore around it and distressed it.
The 2 is a die cut and the letters came from varous newspapers.
I did like where it was going, though, so I continued. Took some pictures to put a little distance and perspective between me and the page, wich ususally helps with things like this.
I did like it, but felt it needed a little extra...wich I did...added some red acrylic drip and toned that down with whitewash and rub 'n buff. Then added the black die cuts to the left.
This, I didn't like...so out came the pastels...they can hide a multitude of sins...
Here are some close-ups.
So yes, art is just another way to live your life. I need to keep that in mind.
next time I will try to make more progress pics, but I do find that difficult to remember when I'm busy working on a page, or anything really.
Should you have any questions, remarks or tips, please leave a comment below. Thank you for watching and I hope you liked it.
