Running Away With Art by Fliss Goodwin


Hi there, I have another of my Hochanda samples to share today, this one showcasing some of the fabulous new texture stamps which I know are going to be my go to sets in the future as I so love making my own backgrounds – as you’ll see, they’re just perfect for that.

I added colour to my page using my current favourite method, which is to scrape the paint over the surface until it’s roughly covered. I used all of the colours and left some white showing to add to the grungy effect. I then added a few more scrapes in contrasting colours to make a line mark pattern.

I then began to add layers of stamping with the texture stamps, starting with the squiggly lines image, which I stamped with the Wild Orchid dye ink. I followed up with the screw heads and circular images which I stamped with the coloured Archival inks until I was happy with the effect.

I used the word stencil to add the text to the page using white gesso. The end result was not quite strong enough so I went over the top with the white paint pen, then doodled on circles with the white to add a bit of texture. I outlined the letters with a black fine marker.

I stamped the art quote on the panel with black ink, then added a little more texture stamping to pull everything together. The page is really easier to make than it might appear and it’s one where you just have to go with the flow!
