I chose Penny Nuttall's project because the materials were more or less to hand at the last minute.
I decided to add a page to my small book that I already submitted as a challenge a while ago…this one.
I chose a piece of hessian for the background and then hunted for paper backed fusible webbing. haven't got any so decided to use Iron on interfacing instead…fingers crossed.
I didn't want to get it massively wet with very watery frescos so I rubbed it with my new intense blocks and blended it a bit with water. then I rubbed treasure gold into it. I placed it onto the hessian and wrapped parchment paper around it and it stuck! I added more treasure gold and you can see a texture where the hessian is.
Next I rummaged through my tissue paper box and found some brown paper with silver on the back…was in the wrong box but meant to be. I tore a piece and stamped one of Darcy's new stamps in archival coffee and olive, distressed the edges and curled it to show the silver. Then I stamped Darcy's new sentiment onto the silver side and finished off with screw style brads on the corners.
I had no preplan in my head and just went with the flow and I think that it worked well, so I have a new page in my little book.
Thanks to Penny for the ideas….I strayed quite a long way from the path but enjoyed my detour!
