Time to Shine by Lynne Moncrieff



This project was made when the Mark Making stamps were first released, somehow I overlooked sharing this project.

Simply, a small collage with a positive message to it and as always, where I find a home for the smallest scraps of stained papers.

Onto watercolour paper panel, firstly a layer of white Gesso, applied randomly, allowing to dry before spraying with Flat Matte Spray in Blackberry, allowing to drip downwards. Before the spray completely dries, spray Lustre Aubergine. Once dry, apply Texture Paste, scraping the paste into the paper.

The sprays were also used to stain tea bag paper and paper scraps.

Adhere prepared watercolour paper to white/greyboard panel, tearing away excess paper. Onto this piece of excess paper, the oval mark making stamp was stamped, in vertical orientation. Before adhering, layering with a piece of the stained tea bag paper, a primitive cross stitch, simply stitched onto upper corner of this panel with black sewing thread.

Selecting words from ATCoin Set 11, stamped onto scraps of the prepared watercolour paper and cut into word tiles, set within the stamped frame.

To the right side of this panel, a button was stitched onto two pieces of stained papers, with other fragments of stained papers place above and below.

Another Mark Making stamp, stamped onto lower right edge of panel. Finally, with black paint pen and then a white paint pen, a scribbled border around the edges of the white/greyboard panel.

That's Crafty! White/Greyboard Surfaces continue to be extended with the range of products within this category.
