I ordered these sprays from Lindy’s Stamp Gang, and when they arrived I just had to test them. It just happened that I had prepped a spread in one of my art journals with gesso, so I tried them out there. Maybe a bit unusual colours for me, but I love how they look together. Very much spring.
And then it just lay there, waiting for me to make something more with it… and finally I decided to use one of Finnabair’s ephemera packs. Another rather unusual choice for me… and of course I had to use papers from 7 Dots Studio! Lost & Found must be one of my all time favs!
Well, here are the result. Hope you enjoy!
Aaaand… since I thought that the colours I used is pretty much similar to Lindy’s Stamp Gang’s April challenge I’ll join them this month… and hope I get everything right. 😀
It’s been a while since I posted anything. Life and work somehow got in the way… I’ve gone up in time at work, and it’s a challenge to adjust to have less time to create.
I decided to join the Mixed Media Place’s Creative Gym this month and their exercise #5. The rules for this one is: combine black backround + all the colors of the rainbow.
My first try was a black background and layering loads of colours with different stencils… It didn’t work for me, so paint over with fresh black acrylic and start over. This gave me a more textured surface to work on, and that’s always a plus, right?
So, here’s my entry. I used a photo of my son from last year, he’s on his way to a party and having his smart outfit, and crooked smile, on. He loves orange, and pretty much all bright colours. I’ve used a couple of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays, sequines, Finnabair’s beads, and different decorative elements as cutouts and paperclips. The golden stars I just cutout from gold foil paper.
Really like how this exercise turned out. Hope you like it too.
