I have been using a LoT of PaperArtsy images lately and their latest challenge really caught my eye (I've been challenging myself to making my own marks rather than always using stamped images, as well as allowing myself to use stamped images to make marks as that's what I love and part of who I am!!), followed by Roxanne's (or 'By Bun' as I know her as I follow her on Instagram and love her work) wonderful step by step post today. I don't have vintage photos in my stash but instead decided to apply her principles to a stamped image to see where it took me!
..followed by some sprinkles of PaperArtsy infusions. I love how the colours merge and fleck.
I selected an area I really liked and wanted within the flower petals .... and missed!! It's that splashy bit to the left of the numerals 487!!
I added some yellow fresco paint, stencilled with some distress crayons, and stamped with Snowflake paint...
... and then got so involved I forgot to take any more step by step photos!! There's lots more splashing of watercolour paint, some mark making with fresco paint and distress markers, some stamping and finally lots of collaged stamped images. I had a great time rediscovering PaperArtsy stamps I've had for a long time!
