This challenge was all about words so I came up with this mixed media piece.
I coated the letters in Gesso and then used a mix of the fabulous spray inks - Peacock Green, French Wine, French Lavender and French Mint over the letters to create a base....
Once they were dry I did a base layer of stamping, directly onto the letters using the navy, orchid, sea blue and cobalt blue pigment inks and heat setting.
I then took a sheet of tissue paper and stamped more images in a mix of colours. Some I painted on the reverse with white and coloured acrylic paints before I cut them all out and layered them up across the letters. Wording was also stamped on tissue and torn into strips before being randomly added using matt medium. Stamps used include, clematis tower, both sizes of double daisies, English Garden words, Mountain Ash leaf, music background, Walesby flourish, serenity prayer and squares border.
To finish the project I added a selection of coordinating paper flowers and some dazzles....
I hope you find some inspiration in this piece. I'd like to say a big thanks to Lynnda and the rest of my DTeamies for a lovely semester - I cannot wait to see what the new guys come up with
Crafty cheers for now
