added color using Ranger Dylusions Ink Sprays (took lids off and poured small amount into palette tray) and brushed on with very wet paint brush. Colors I used were Lemon Zest, Vibrant Turquoise and Melted Chocolate.
sprayed with a very good amount of water to blend, closed the book to meld and then once dried - added some washi tape to continue with the linear lines
have had this stamp for a bit (Donna Downey She Is) now and really wanted to add it to a page, but wanted it done a bit different. So looking around my table for some inspiration...ding! What If....I stamped the image using wendy vecchi's translucent embossing paste? Why Not?!
Here goes nothing....
Since I was going to have to wait for it to dry (probably over night) I decided to use my new Dina Wakley Stencil Affirmations over top of some good ol' drywall mesh (you know me, never enough texture). This time around I used Wendy Vecchi's Black Embossing Paste (vs the usual of me just mixing black paint with modeling paste). Not sure if I can really tell the difference in the result, but did like it - as you can see, I did over apply it in a few areas, but I am ok with that.
Here is the result the next morning...well not quite as I added more Lemon Zest & Vibrant Turquoise and then water over the stamped image so to bring it out (I actually tried first to ink it, epic fail) - this was my attempt to fix it!
after adding some gelato to the edges, I can live with it now!
Next page was a fun one! I decided to create a background with 'paper' for a change as I hadn't done that in a while. I dug through my tickle tote of paper goodies and came across some old House of Three embellishments - tickets! I prep'd the page with Golden Gel Medium, started tearing tickets and sticking!
so not to keep things too 'normal' decided to change things up a bit and put the tickets the opposite direction on the opposing page!
Time to add some color...
colored the entire opposing page. Since I used gel medium, I was able to easily wipe off some of the paint through my Tim Holtz Laying Stencil Numbered with a baby wipe.
you can see on the hexagon side that I added some dark brown (some Studio Calico Mister Huey's Classic Dark Calico). The hexagon is cut randomly from a sheet of Jillibean Soup Placemats White Hexagon.
once it was all adhered down, I added some stamped images from the House of Three stamp set Parisian Anthology. The 'die cuts' are cut from the ephemera pack of the same series. I of course had to add some black gelato to the edges!
Here are some close ups...
Thanks for stopping by....
