Happy February, what a delightful month! This means a new challenge at Stamps & Stencils. Have we got a fun one in store for you! This month's theme, as chosen by the lovely Sue, our DT leader, is Splatter, Spritz, Smoosh! We want you to break out your sprays, paints and inks and really get messy! That's exactly what I've done for my creation.
For my project I mod podged some die cuts and torn hymnal strips onto a watercolor panel, then went to town playing with my Loew Cornell watercolors, creating ink puddles and then spraying them with water to disperse, allowing drips to form and heat setting in between layers.
I used my new Tim Holtz Ornate Oval Frame, which I painted and stamped, to create my focal point.
This awesome image is by Invoke Arts - one of my all time favorites! I gently watercolored the panel and spritzed and flecked it with the wash.
For extra texture, I added some string into the mod podged layers and sprinkled with some rock candy distress glitter while still wet.
I used a hymn title for my sentiment. Then I embossed around the edges of the panel. I rubbed Versamark along the edges and then covered with copper Cloisonne embossing powder and heat set. This page will be added to my Scrabble mini album after I complete the opposing page.
