You know yesterday I was playing around with black gesso for my pendants, and as my craft sheet was full of it I thought I should use it. When my background for a new spread was ready in my art journal, I looked at it and I had a complete blackout, I said that’s it, this is the page that I am going to turn over. At Stampotique designers’ challenge Carol asked us to use three colours black – purple – pink. And boom that was what I was waiting for. I looked at my spread again and I saw it that’s my page. Thank you Carol!
So the famous background was first coloured with pan pastels and then black washed with black gesso.
Now this was the page, look at it, any ideas? And then I took my scraps from my table and I threw it on as a collage. I applied some shadows with charcoal.
Next I used In stitches stamp (#8118) with purple acrylics and stamped on my spread.
This purple was pretty dark, so I wanted to have some lighter colour. I mixed some texture paste with neon pink acrylics and applied it through a stencil.
My image (Janet Klein #9129) was stamped on a pan pastel coloured sheet. My image was attached on a piece of canvas that I coloured with Glimmer mist and stamped with France Papillon’s French Journal page. I added some pieces of lace with stitches and some beads.
I altered a small pastel pink tag with milled lavender distress ink and I stamped on it some words (Janet Klein #9061). I stitched around it.
I wrote my journaling inside the tag, and there I used France Papillon’s splattered mug stamp.
At the corner I added three feathers and I splattered with with ecoline (pastel purple). I used archival ink to stamp my sentiment (Maria Sabina #7304).
