Challenge time again and more fun to be had. This time it was all about scraping paint onto the page with a credit card/hotel key card or some other such card and watching how the layers take shape and then adding some stencilling. So what to do? I chose my larger journal which is A4ish in size. First decision, what colours to use? I don't have that many although my collection is getting larger as I do more journaling. First up it was teal blue and light beigey pink:
which turned out like this
Then I just had to do another page with different colours this time red, blue, purple and gold!
I had a hard time deciding on the stencil to use and in the end punched out three hearts and used the spaces as a stencil which I did in different colours on the background
I really loved the gold on the red so wanted to do more of that using the hearts again
But neither looked finished somehow so .....
I added some shiny stones I had in my stash and some tissue tape. And for the red one I ummed and ahhed about what to use. I really wanted to use black but didn't want it to overtake the page!!!! In the end it was a case of " c'mon girl loosen up here and just go for it" and this was the result!
And I like it. I like it alot!
At the same time I did some experimenting as Michelle suggested using gesso then black paint, scraping back and adding several colours. These will be good background pages for journaling sometime. Any ideas for taking them further?
Thanks again Michelle for a great challenge!
