Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Dreams.
Today's art challenge was to 'make your own washi tape to use on your page today'.
I thought I would try making my version of washi tape using surgical tape. I stuck some down on my glass plate and stamped on it. I sprayed some in on it but it seeped underneath and I was concerned it might stop it being sticky so I used Distress Ink instead.
Then I went a bit berserk with a star stencil and the Fall Seasonal Distress Inks.
And then I added some glimmer mist!!!
One of the joys of having the glass plate was that I could put the tape over the top of the page to see if it would work!
Which is when I decided it didn't and added some acrylic paint to it using my fingers. I added it to the page but wasn't particularly impressed with it.
So I made some more tape using just Archival Ink.
I put the new tape over the old tape. Sprayed the cut up verse and stuck it on.
I highlighted some of the stars, doodled along the sides of the tape and journaled between the cut up verse.
I think it's still too busy a background for me and would probably have started again except I'd already done the other side of the page. I suppose I could have covered it with gesso or sprayed more ink over it.
Still there it is. A very starry page.
I hope you have a better day. See you tomorrow.
