I started off Friday night doing a challenge with a friend of mine from another community that of course could not come (boo), so we simply did it via iPhones! I challenged her to do a page from a class we have been taking online but not 'copy' her page, just the techniques. Here are the results...
I prep'd the page using my handy palette knife and gesso of course lightly and roughly. I grabbed one of my old books and tore out a couple pages and then tore them into pieces randomly.
I adhered the pages using Gel Medium and did not adhere them down totally, just the tops so the bottom halves flopped in the wind (the music sheet is adhered totally)!
Now comes the fun part - I used modeling paste to create texture and 'hold down' parts of the bits and pieces of paper
To add more texture and flow, I added a strip of Prima Finnabair Elementals Borders #3
Continued adding some Modeling Paste, this time to add the die cut shape of Tim Holtz Alterations Umbrella Man and some washi tape of course!
randomly swipe it onto the page using your palette knife.
Here are a few close ups...
a few stamps here and there...
traced umbrella man...
added some more texture and another focal point with Tim Holtz Alterations Die Garden Greens (inked and sprayed with various Tim and Lindy's colors)
of course need a few splats..love those Lindy's! Also used another Tim Holtz Collection Stamp to create a title.
Here is the final result!
Thanks for stopping by!
