Abstract Now

Inspired by the fabulous work of Seth Apter on the PA challenge this week, I had a play.
I started with a Black Gessoed background on my journal. To this, I scraped some spare pink and white acrylic paint and scraped it across with a comb style tool.
Next, I stamped some gold dots and left it overnight for me to think about.

This evening, I stamped circles with EEV06 in black archival and clear embossed them; stamped letters and numbers in clear and heat embossed with some bright embossing powders that I have had unused for ages.

I cut out some circles from a master board that I created the other day and linked them to the piece by stamping black EEV06 circles onto them and edging them with red pen.

Finally, I scribbled with white pen and wrote NOW for no other reason than this piece felt very now.
Excited by the brightness of it and off to Black Gesso more pages! Get tea ready?...ermm..might not bother!
Entering this into the PA Abstract challenge!
