First, I made several random backgrounds on deli paper - a bit of stencilling, some stamping, nothing special. Most of it will be covered.
I tore the backgrounds to smaller pieces and glued them to a piece of cardstock.
I applied some gesso and then some paint using a palette knife. This way I achieve random coverage.
Next, I stencilled some small shapes to add a bit of interest.
Finally, I added some embellishments - I stamped the leaves and words on black cardstock using white ink that doesn't dry no matter what I do - so I always sprinkle some transparent embossing ink over it to seal it.
This time, I didn't do a double page spread because my focal quote worked fine on a single page. So I used some other embellishments on the left-hand side.
The PaperArtsy products I used:
- numbers stencil 021
- numbers stamp from Gentleman Plate 4
- circles from Emma Godfrey's EEG07
- leaves from Lin Brown's ELB04
- arrow from JOFY22
- la vie est belle from Emma Godfrey's EEG07
- she dreams in colours... from Emma Godfrey's EEG17
Hope you got inspired, see you next time.
