I am on a bit of a crafting frenzy at the moment as my Grandchildren have been away.....back onto the treadmill tomorrow! Only joking....I think!
Yesterday evening I spent some time sketching pics of a beautiful Astrantia plant which I have in my garden. Today I took photos and printed them out and created different photos, trying out image transfer techniques.
The one that I chose for this piece is an image printed out onto Photo Fabric.
It started out as a double page in my vintage annual, but the right hand page was a mess, so I settled for half of it.
This page has been gessoed and Grunge paste applied through a Donna Downey stencil.
Then I coloured over the letters with an Apple Green inktense pencil and added some distress stains in the wrinkle free method.
I mounted my pic onto some cotton using Fuse A Web and added just a word from Tim Holtz Big Chat.
I shall enter this into the A Vintage Journey Monochrome challenge. It started out monochrome but a tiny bit of colour crept in, in the disguise of Ageing!
