I didn't have any board so decided to use a PA carrier bag with my postcards and JOFY stamps.
First I reluctantly tore up some postcards and arranged them on the bag.
I stuck them down and applied a watered wash of Snowflake fresco.
Next I painted lightly over the outside border of the bag with bright fresco paints, all of which were translucent; meaning that you could still see the postcard images, which is what I wanted. I stamped a JOFY border and used the dragonflies. I used the same colours to highlight bits of the border.
Frescos..Yellow Submarine, Tango, London Bus, Limelight and Beach Hut.
Because Gillian's had a sort of circus feel to it, I decided to make a unicyclist out of bits of JOFY stamps. a bit like making the soft toys a few weeks ago.
I stamped with black stazon onto acetate and painted with same fresco paints on the back. This is the reverse.
I made a tag using a PA sentiment stamp; attached the acetate using brads and Hey Presto, my carrier bag became a piece of art and I hung it on the wall. Bit mad but have really enjoyed the project. Thanks Gillian for an exciting and lively piece of work to set the creative cogs whirring!!
