Another street team challenge , this time to use a background which has been prepared earlier so here we have two layer-painted pages.
|fairly uninteresting as they stand but layered using credit card and acrylic paint|
time to brighten it up a little with some spray gold paint and some stencils and a little metallic rub on along the sides and a hint of script stamping
I used distressed ink in a variety of colours on the front of each with a theme of yellow/orange/red and a bit of green
I loved seeing Michelle's hand print - such a personal message, so I cut a stencil of my hand and sprayed black copper paint (crafty notions) over it (I nearly didn't as it looked so dark in the bottle and I thought I might spoil it all but it's all about taking a small risk here and there and going with the flow. The inner critic would have me cautious and careful but this is so much more fun)
And I love the result!
So to the next page (base colours purple, black and white) I added a stencil made up from Tim Holtz's alphabet masks and outlined it with a sakura pen. Then I added some flower stencilling with distressed ink in purple. I then wrote words on some voile fabric and used gel medium to stick them down. Some of the words just melted into the page which was really cool.
Thank you again Michelle for this challenge. It was fun and I was surprised by the results. I really had no idea what I was going to do today with those pages but it just all came together.
