I Black Gessoed my Journal page and wiped over Paperartsy fresco Beach Hut, Sky, Baltic Blue and Glass Blue with a credit card!
Next I added some fresco Snowflake with a comb.
I added dots of silver paint applied with a stamp and then used a scribble stamp of Dina Wakleys with Black Archival, White paint and 2 blue embossing powders.
As a contrast, I added some texture with a Finnabair stamp using Coffee Archival.
What to do next puzzled me at first. I kept placing different images from archive photos but they looked out of place. Then I looked through my collection of magazine snippings and found this statement. Bit ironic as I have just piled on half a stone...but hey ho!
I made a copy of my background and used a magazine image and the sentiment as an alternative. Still like the plain one but enjoy the shape of the figure as it contrasts the background! Any preferences out there?
I designed this for the CVC challenge but will also submit it into the PA challenge which is Abstract Art.
