I seem to be drawn to setting flowers, birds or butterflies against a scene of rusted dereliction.
The Abstract Stone Dinky Stencil, a favourite when it comes to working with nature themed stamps, helped to bring texture to this panel.
PaperArtsy Infusions:- Black Knight, Golden Sands, The Sage, Lemoncello
Old Credit Card
Apply Grunge Paste to stencil, randomly onto panel. Once dry apply Infusions, generously misting with water. Apply Gesso with old credit card, while Infusions are still wet, heat set, then apply patches of the Rust paint. Heat set before applying more Infusions and Gesso. It’s just a matter of some playtime, building up layers.
Stamp various JOFY flowers and leaves onto the panel, highlighting with Infusions (mainly The Sage and Lemoncello) and white paint pen. Stamp JOFY texture stamp randomly onto panel.
Onto scrap white cardstock apply Infusions (I use any leftover Infusions on my craft sheet), misting with water. Stamp sentiment. Cut into word tiles, adhere to panel, randomly drawing boxes around each tile.
Create white splatters with diluted Gesso, flicking onto panel.
Finally, ink edges of panel before wrapping some Gypsy Cord around bottom edge.
Until next time,
