Over on the Country View crafts Blog, our theme for this new year is Anything Goes.
So, I was more than happy to try out my newly acquired stamps from the talented Tracy Scott.
They are from Paperartsy and are ETS01.
I decided to work in my fave repurposed Girls Annual, the paper is so thick and yummy.
I began by giving the page a watery wash of fresco Sky. Then, using Black Archival ink, I stamped an arrangement across the page.
Because of all the detail on the stamps, it would have been quite difficult to paint detail without covering all the lines, so, I stamped onto some coloured background and cut out the shapes.
The aper that I used was given to me by Tracy Scott and is one of her designs which she has reproduced for chopping up. Here it is with my cut out pieces showing. Obviously, I didn't cut out all the spikes, just the centres.
I added some colouring and doodling using a selection of Posca pens and added a sentiment which I think is appropriate for the new year.
" You are capable of becoming more than you realise!"
Finally, I splattered some fresco paint in Snowflake.
Happy New Year everyone!
