I'm Different by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

Donna here today with a quirky mash up of stamps using one of That’s Crafty! new journal pages..….well it just had to be done!

What to do: 

Use the white paper side of the A4 white/greyboard journal and randomly and lightly brayer on some Fresco paints, dry thoroughly.

I used some drywall tape (I highly recommend popping into your local DIY shop for this) to dab some Distress ink through it for the little squares effect you see but of course a stencil will do as well.

Take a Dina Wakley stamp and randomly apply it on the background with black Archival ink. Next take a DecoArt Media mister, in one of the lovely pink/purple shades, dribble down some paint from the top corners, dry thoroughly once more.

Now we’re going to begin the mash up! Stamp the body of Penny onto a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and colour in with Distress markers, fussy cut out but before adhering to the background, slide the Rubber Dance flower stamp (which was also coloured with Distress markers) under the body before adhering to the background. Add Bentley’s head, which was stamped on a piece of Gelli print, to the body, smear a little bit of black Gelato under the figure to ‘ground’ it.

For the finishing touches add a word from the Beki stamp set and a sentiment from Katzelkraft which is very apt I think!!

Oh and have you noticed what’s in the flower…..take a look……
