Hiya I have been lost for a little while as to how to develop my crafting to maintain my mojo so I made a decision last week to start crafting for me as and when and how I want to get the most fullfillment from it.
I love watching Create and Craft on TV and gain a lot of inspiration from this programme. So inspired by Stephanies Weightmans fab One stroke painting and Sheena Douglas's idea of paint fusion I bit the bullet and today I created an altered notebook using acrylics, gesso and some really old stamps and a few tricks I learnt from the girls xxx
I firstly got the notebook which I have had in my stash for ages and I used a flesh coloured acrylic to coat it. I then mixed my gesso with some paint and washed over the flesh colour. I then dried with my heat gun.
I don't own any of the paint fusion stamps but I love the idea of it so having watched the demo's on the telly I created this little layout with my leaf stamps and my THUMB and TOP OF THE PENCIL RUBBER (blackberries). I am loving this one stroke folkart style of painting and must admit it is very addictive.
I used a promarker to create a bit more definition. The Sentiment is stamped in Distress ink which I added to the edges of the notebook too. My First attempt but I am quite chuffed with it x
This is a gift for a teacher who came with me to a paediatric assessment just to thank her for her help xxx
I am entering the Crafts and Me Challenge to stamp something x
Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale
