2017 Topic 19: My Favourite Things for Paper Artsy!!

2017 Topic 19: My Favourite Things

I'd like to share my favourites in crafting today! 
OK, my favourites, you ask? 
Getting messy, with flowers, torn strips of paper, rusty objects and using a stencil or two with structure paste to finish it off. 
This art journal page reflects what I like to do most! 
Contrasts of dark and light.. flowers... playing with product that is SO awesome!

...and yes, I've used all the themes that were on our blog lately... WHY? .. they were my favourites, too! 
Shades of white 
Torn / ripped /burnt !  

This makes me happy, yes! 


The Intro and Challenge post for RUST made me want to get paper and fabric get rusty!
These are on fabric!  

These are on tissue paper! I 've made a lot more!

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!!
