Hi you all, it's weekend, and I hope you are all finding time to relax and enjoy your weekend. Here it is almost warm today - in comparison - 6°! I went for a rather wet and misty walk, and came home hungry for my lunch.
The third part of Carolyn's 'Use your Words' course is 'random letter fun', and this journal spread is my take on the theme. I started by
splodging painting the background with metallic blue and yellow, and then stamping into the still wet paint with script and diamond stamps (LaBlanche). I did not use any colour, so sometimes the stamp made a sort of negative print, and sometimes transferred colour to other parts, which was an effect I liked. I then blew a little perfect pearls and copper EP onto it, and heat dried to give some texture
The second layer has been made using 3 stencils from CWS and dark blue distress ink.
Then I used my stencils to draw the figures and letters with a fine black permanent marker. I coloured them all with a turquoise prismalo pencil and painted over them with a water pen. I wanted them to have some colour, but still show the background.
The pictures which I have taken at an angle show more of the texture and sheen.
I had fun making this again - I always do, it's just H*******K I don't like doing!
And on Valentine's Day I got 2 lovely cards, from Donna in Mexico - she knows I love cardboard!
And from Carolyn in the USA.
Both ladies kindly added embellies, too, and I was really happy to get post on Valentine's day!
Thanks a lot Donna and Carolyn!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, reeeeeeeeelax, have fun and thanks a lot for coming by!
