I like to share another old pages I did several days ago. I was merely playing with stencils and cool Tim Holtz stamps. Sharon Yong of Scrappingville owns many great artsy stamps and I often play with them after preparing class kits at the store :). When I first saw these stamps, I immediately knew I had to create earthy steampunk pages!. The glasses and the funky numbers stamps remind me of 'Sherlock Holmes' movie :).
On the left, I adhered embossed card stock as background before applied gesso on. Then I finger-painted all over the pages with brown, copper and blue acrylic paint. Did you notice I mistakenly stamped 'Not all who wondered are lost' upside down?. [*wink wink; see the little inclusion].
I love doodling using correction pen. The lollipop 'fireworks' add depth to my rather blend page, I think. They also resemble ideas which constantly popping in my mind. You still could see (and feel) the floral patterns from the embossed card stock, even after the pages were heavily primed with gesso and painted on with acrylic paint.
Miscellaneous bits and pieces like torn page from storybook, a canvas tag and tulle scrap give dimensions to the page.
There you have it. Layering is so much fun!.
See you soon :).
