As you can see I started with torn strips of that gorgeous rusty tissue paper. I used two stencils (PS021 and PS074) with structure paste in the background. I've also added some structure paste with a palette knife randomly to the background and some Snowflake Fresco Acrylic paint. to tie it all together.
AND then.. yes.. the fabric ! I added two 'torn' strips as a focal point for the main flower onto the page.
(YES, I've got a whole roll of that yummy aid bandage all rusted!)
I've added the flowers and a quote from JOFY52 to finish it off.
A close-up of all the contrasts between the white and rusty colors! o, yes .. I ve colored the flowers with some Snowflake Fresco Acrylic paint.
You might see that I've enjoyed making this page.. I had no struggle of putting the composition together; one thing lead to another... it created it all by itself.
I'd like to encourage you to have a go yourselves; go create in you favourite style, with your favourite colors, your favourite stamps and/or stencils ....
...and enjoy crafting!! I am entering this in the challenge on 1. we love 2create - anything goes MM
I am creating little notebooks lately to give away. LOVE doing that! I've been into bookmaking for a long time now, especially restoring old books, giving them a new jacket for instance. ... and I still enjoy it, also because I can use these covers as a canvas :) ... It makes it a personal note book, and with the elastic band it looks so much more 'professional' ! Had to figure out how to do that pretty invisible on the insides of the covers. I think it turned out great. Not perfect, but hand-made should not be perfect, hehe.
I've been playing with structure paste and stamping (Magenta) ... and stencils and Coloration sprays from Art Anthology on these covers !
