Recently, being inspired by the fabulous work of Seth Apter, I have been playing with backgrounds onto Black Gesso.
After gessoing the journal page I mixed some coloured grungepaste by mixing Umber and Penny Dina Wakley acrylics with PA grungepaste. I applied the grungepaste through a stencil which looks like industrial sheeting.
When it was dry I scraped some more DW acrylics in Ruby, Tangerine and Night over the page using a texture comb.
I sanded a little to reveal the layers underneath, Stamped dots with Dylusions stamp and heat embossed some dots for added impact!
I rubbed some Treasure Pewter over some of the grungepaste and edged my work with paint dipped into a credit card.
I doodled a little with a white pen and stippled some white paint with a stencil brush.
Finally, I added a PA stamp, MN07 with black archival onto brown paper, aged it a bit; added an old film negative....used a bit of Tim Holtz die cutting and a die cut key, aged with treasure gold.
I am entering this into the Countryviewcrafts challenge.
