I started by gluing some torn mop up paper which has some Paperartsy stamps on to my background.
Next, I added some manuscript paper, a couple of stamps and a photo of my parents wedding.
I applied some white gesso over and around them with my fingers. Oh, and there is some stamping with a PA mini script stamp too!
I found a photo of my local and quite famous church....The Crooked Spire in Chesterfield and sketched and painted it! I used black sketching pens, a few watercolour crayons and some fresco paint. There is also a little highlighting with a white Uniball Siglo pen.
My parents were married there in 1941 and my Dad was a soloist in the choir...but not on that day!
I painted a wash in the sky with PA fresco Sky, added some more touches of white gesso, a little scribbled framing, and , on the advice of Jo Myhill.....did a little writing around the photo!
My first skirmish with architecture!
Enjoyed doing this and hope that you like it too!
