The Original Documented Life Project: - 5

 I am doing the Original Documented life projectthe January theme being: 
The Blank Page and How to Face It!
 Art challenge for the 5th week:  Under Paper 
The prompt is: What Lies Beneath? 


****

 I am enterimg this art journal page of approx 20 by 25 cm in the following challenge: 
1. Craft StamperStencilling
2. Our creative corner - tic tac toe - I chose paints, stamps and stencils. 


The underpaper that I wanted to use, was just too smal, so I tore strokes, and adhered it to the page to make it fit. 
A thin layer of gesso was applied over it to tie everything together...  

With use of a gold structure paste and punchinella I made some circles. I was not happy with it, so smeared it over the page to get this golden shine over the background, and removed some of it with the punchinella and a wet cloth. Further coloring was done with distress inks that coordinated with the original colors in the underpaper. 


Now the fun started, yes, with my new stamps and stencil from Designs by Ryn!!
I added white structure paste over the beautiful maidenhair stencil, while drying it took up some color from the underlying distress inks. 
I added stamping of the water droplets, and colored some of them with a watercolorpencil, and of course added some highlights with a acrylic marker.  

Only thing I missed now was a script, but Ryn does not have scriptstamps, so I grabbed one from Art Journey. I stamped the leaves with it over the stencil. 

In real life it's way more colorful, and shimmery.

    1. Sorry Ellie, mijn nieuwe tablet verandert steeds letters. Heel irritant. Hij vindt blijkbaar Ellis mooier. :0). Trouwens wat een mooi stencil van Ryn heb je hier gebruikt.

  18. This is so beautiful Ellie! I love how you made the background and that includes how you rescued it when it didn't quite work for you!
