Carabelle Studio Art Stamps – Collage Nid d’abeilles and Taches et Coutures
Pebeo Dyna Paints – Orange/Yellow, Blue/Green, Green/Yellow
Prima Art Alchemy Paints – Light Patina and Rich Turquoise
StazOn Azure

I always keep at least 2 pages clear in my journal to wipe up left over paint, check what stamps look like and use up texture and crackle paste and once they start to look interesting I work into them.  This is a case in point and I noticed that most of the paints I had used were pearlescent or mica based so decided to keep with that feel.

Firstly as the Collage Nid d’abeilles was on one page I stamped it again twice on the other page with the blue StazOn.

Next I added more Black Modelling Paste through the Abstract Stone stencil to balance the pages as it was only there on one page.

I added the Dyna paints again seeking to balance the two pages.

Using the archival ink I stamped the circle from the Taches et Coutures set in five places and filled the circles in with gesso.  When dry I painted these in with the two Prima paints, gave the circles a white outline with the Sharpie and once again stamped the circles over the top with the archival.

By shaking the sharpie hard over the age I got some nice fine splatters.

At this stage it felt like I was looking at planets floating in a galaxy far away which lead me to my phrase made with a couple of Chit Chat stickers.

  4. This is awesome, and such a bright joyous creation to bring a bit of sunshine to such a "miserable day" weatherwise.

    Surprisingly, your creation really shows how textured your work is in the photograph, so it must be so very tactile in "real life"!

  5. A gorgeous, colourful galaxy!!! xxx
