I decided to work in my journal as I was totally unsure of where I was heading. if I am pleased with my results, I will rework onto canvas.
I started by selecting a poem and illustration from a book of love poems, and using grunge paste through the new JOFY bloom and grow stencil.
Next, I painted on my fresco colours. starting in the middle, Limelight, Toad Hall, Lilac, Pansy and Eggplant. If I did it again I would blend them with foam rather than with a brush.
By now I was in the WHAT HAVE I DONE zone. but know that things can be retrieved so carried on. I stamped images from new Lynne Perrella stamps, painted them;stamped script with olive archival; treasure gilded the flowers and words with Brass and Amethyst, and glued down the images. Rubbed a bit more TG around the edges and there was my finished work. Yet another "what I would do better next time" piece but enjoyable and learning.
