Good morning and welcome "dear follower" (as I write this, that just being Carol) hi Carol - but hi to any one else who may have stumbled upon this and taken pity on me...LOL
Well it looks like rain today instead of snow, hope the sun is shining and is better where you are... me thinks this means a day inside to craft some more.
I suppose I am on a bit of an Art Journal "journey" at present.
I've made similar style cards and digital-scrap pages but not really made any art like that in a real book until recently. (small 6x4 Windsor and Newton type with perforation's)
So this was the outcome of my last 'play time'
|Used Liquitex apricot paint|
|then some Liquitex venetian rose and Rowney bright green|
|More paint added and then time to stamp|
This is where I now wish I had used a book that I could take the pages out of. On the left hand page, the detail of the main stamp has been lost and looks faded - looks worse in photo... and this is why I've added the words on that page at top which say 'Don't fade away'.
I used archival ink and wonder if a combination of it being a large detailed foam stamp and not being able to press quite as good as I would have liked didn't make it easy to get a decent impression. (must remember to check that ink pad not starting to run out too) The acrylic paint was also artist quality, wonder does that make a difference to how inks etc react with them... so many things to consider and learn.
|Slight buckling of the paper and over head shot |
has made page shape look a bit odd - oops!.
Paint: Liquitex apricot and ventian rose and Rowney bright green.
Stamps: La Blanche (the faded bit is a girl looking at butterfly)
small stamps a mix of Hero Arts, SeeD's and All night media.
Stamp on above page, Lady from a Hero Arts set. Also used white Souffle pen and black permanent marker pen for some dots and highlights.
Thanks so much for stopping by.... have a lovely day x
