This is the sketch challenge, I used a variety of elements in my page.
Here is a short video of the creative process.
After prepping the background with gesso to take on pastes and sprays. I take the inspiration from the background on the sketch. I added stamping with the Distress Numbers Stamp along with the Numbers Boarder Stamp. Using the Distress patterns stencil, I add a thick layer of black pastes sporadically over the page.
I used various chipboards. I added colour with Lindy’s spray. I only had a small variety with me at Maggi’s so I made it work with what I had. I highlighted the chipboard with some waxes. I don’t always cut my photos down to fit the Grunge Frames. I like the different look, it adds an element of uniqueness to the page.
I used various Washi clusters on the page in-between the layers. I actually cut them apart to make them go a little further.
I just love love love layers. I actually brought a number of flowers with me on the trip to Maggi’s. (I actually forgot to pack them until there was a gentle reminder) But some of my layouts just don’t need them.
The twist this month was to add splashes on the page. I used some burnt umber and yellow iron oxide liquid acrylic paints. I diluted it with some water before adding some splashes. I finished the page off with some glass glitter.
