Clean and Simple...

I was reading recently about the importance of 'white space' within a project. This is not something I do, as white space scares me a little, I always feel you need to do more.

So I have created this...

My substrate is a piece of A4 watercolour card, and I sprinkled over 3 colours of Brusho's, spritzed with water and stamped onto the card.

I was really pleased with the result. I really had to fight with myself to walk away from this as I wanted to add more. But I have decided to leave as it is.

This was a real challenge for me, I need to do more of these to gain some confidence in having 'white space' within my project...

Mixed Media Assemblage Face..

This is my attempt at assemblage face. All created onto scraps of wood.

This eye came to life by using one of the texture stamps from the Sheena range, looks just like an eye!!

The nose part was painted using  Pebeo Dyna paints in Bronze, I used a mark making tool to create the circles using the same range of paint in blue.

The mouth section comprises of a cut out from a magazine, and the crackle paint is from Deco Art Media.

 This eye was made on a Tim Holtz fragment glass tile. I used Pebeo Gold lining medium to create the outline, a white sharpie pen and the blue is some nail polish!!

Great fun, love creating these small assemblages!!!

In The Garden...

In the Garden, is the theme on the Clarity Stamp Challenge this month.

I started off by making several Gelli Plate prints with the Clarity Stencil. I decided to choose the print that I made to use the spare paint that was on the stencil!!

On one of the spare prints, I stamped the letters to make the word Garden!

On a separate piece of card, I brayered on some Indigo Blu Hot Cocoa acrylic paint and stamped randomly the Clarity Dragonfly stamp. You can see this in the picture below.

I glued into position the letters and layered it all together.

Great fun, looks kind of Autumny!
