Happy to be back in the groove and joining in once again at "Stamps and Stencils".
The topic is Colour, Texture, Shape, and the mood board was very inspiring.
I chose to use mellow tones of honey and sepia, with a little antique linen for good measure.
I began with a background of fragile papers and toned them down with Chalk and Snowdrop fresco paints. Added some texture with gesso through a stencil and also with a few Seth Apter stamps.
next came the lace, flowers and beads which took longer to arrange than the background to create.
to finish off, a little dishes stain and a word band.
I managed to include a little of the Oxide, antique linen to the background which made me happy!
How lovely! The background is really stunning, fragile papers, inky distressing and soft texture - so dreamy - and the composition is perfect. Love this!ReplyDelete
