Tuesday

The one where I used my background paper as a paint palette...


Happy-today 

So I'm guest designing this month with the lovely team over at The Studio Challenges. The first challenge for the month is all about stamping...the more the merrier! :)


I really wanted to use the negative diecut from my canvas memo board class. But it really needed some colour to stand out so I used some Dina Wakley paints. While the paint was still wet, I ran my stamps on it and started stamping the background. [yes, I used the wet paint on my base paper as a palette..hey, no cleaning up! *winks*].


Then I toned down the bright colours with The Crafter's Workshop stencil and Liquitex light modeling paste [love the slightly translucent quality if you add a thin layer].


While the green paint was still wet, I ran some gauze over it too [didn't have much paint left...so the edges are a little lighter...*LOL*]

Ooooh you sure had fun with this one! About the email address on my profile - I have changed over from a blogger profile to a google one now & to add my email there means the entire world can see it. Not too sure how I feel about that so have not done it. Not too good an idea I don;t think. On the iphone thing it was a little complicated this time as I actually took over Shanes old phone so didn't have my own apple ID but now for this new one I will so I will make sure to do back ups!

Miae said...

Looks like you had a load of fun with those stamps! Bright and happy page!
