Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Celebration
Today's art challenge was to 'use wrapping paper on your page today'.
I sprayed the inks onto my paper and then to get rid of the excess paint I put it ink side down on my backing paper and interesting things happened.
It picked up the turquoise stamping I had done when I was cleaning the stamp from the faux stitching. And picked up some of the other colours!
I stamped some balloons at the top of the page.
This is a tip from Dyan Reaveley. I stamped two of the images on plain paper and cut them out and covered two of the sets of balloons. I stamped over the top.
I did this several times and all the ones I stamped after the initial four sets look as thought they are behind the first ones. Clever or what!?! Thank you Dyan.
I painted different colours in the balloons with acrylic paint and some of the inks,
I added my verse and my journaling.
Where the rectangular highlights are on the balloons I coloured in with a yellow glaze pen. I did this three times. You have to wait for it to dry between each application.
Then I realised I'd forgotten the wrapping paper. I could only find birthday paper even though I'd written about Christmas. But never mind!
I punched out some circles and stuck them on.
What are you celebrating today?
