My fingers are itching to hit the spray paint! I've signed up for the coolest class with Mary Ann Moss (Dispatch From LA), one that's all about stenciling and Mary Ann's awesome art pages. She has a funky, colorful, messy style that I adore. BUT...
It's rained. It's poured. The wind has created havoc.
In short, no spray painting for Paula!
So, today I grabbed some watercolor paper, Ranger Adirondack spray inks, some stencils, Liquitex soft body paint, stencils...and the play began! I had so much fun, and here's the result:
I love the rich lucious layers and depth!
Working backwards, here's number 24. It nearly hit the trash can, mostly due to my own desire to rush it along. I had glued down some vintage text and given it a glze of a gorgeous blue. I decided to use a mask to add some color. I had dried....well, I thought I had dried it...with my heat gun. On went the mask, and up came a great deal of the page. Something about it made me hesitate to toss it, so I just kept going, adding some stamping, rub ons, an image, and some faint stenciling. Isn't it gorgeous?
Number 23 nearly did me in as well. I started with that vintage text and a wash of cheap acrylic, and then added some left over gift wrap paper. I rubber stamped the flower and then, the quote. At that point, my muse slipped out the door. The whole thing was just not working. Wanting to keep this series going until I finished 37, I just kept going, adding some rub ons, but what finally made it come together was the white pen. I added the white daisies and decided, not bad! I kinda like it!
Numbers 22 and 21 are much simpler. Until I began to blog about these cards, I didn't realize what a roll I was on with the text as background. So, some stamps, some images, some tape. Simple, but fun!
