I found a set of small photos from about 5 years ago of a family walk up in the Lake District. It was late August and although not quite autumnal, nevertheless very beautiful.
I decided to make a 12x12 piece and once again, PaperArtsy papers are perfect and strong enough to cope with layers. I chose a newspaper style background and brayered fresco paints onto it. Like Pams' I left the top corner free for some breathing space.
I was trying for a landscape effect and next used a PA script stamp in 2 colours to give the effect of movement on the water.
Next I stippled paint through a tree stencil and then, because I wanted some different texture I scraped shavings of wax crayon in blues and greens and ironed over them ( covered with parchment paper). Overdid them a bit, wanted a more speckled effect.
I sprayed the wax area with watered down fresco mix of snowflake and sky and started to build up some stamping. PA birds in trees, cow parsley etc; mounted 3 pics onto black paper and started to build up the page.
I wanted to add a bit more dimension so, inspired by a book by Angie Lewin I cut out some teasel shapes, drew on them, sanded them a bit and glued them on slightly raised up. I stamped one of Lin's new sentiments and glued some wooden letters which I mounted on black card. I die cut some leaves to link the photos and inked around the frame.
I am thrilled and surprised with this page as it has raised my game a bit!
Thanks Pam once again for providing me with excellent stimulation!
