I'm so enjoying experimenting with mixed media while following the Journal 52 prompts...and am actually keeping up. The prompt for week 6 is Windows - I'm trying to use a quote for each week and found one including 'Windows' and 'Love' and so created this page with some of the many Love themed challenges that are about currently in mind
I forgot to take photos as I created the layers of this background - I started with Gesso, went over this with some pale green acrylic paint, stuck down some printed tissue paper, and then added some stenciling through a Clarity stamps swirly stencil with peeled paint distress ink. Next I stamped a Hero arts swirly/foliage stamp also in peeled paint DI. I cut some pink roses from patterned paper, and arranged in the corners before washing over with watered down gesso to bring down the colours a bit before stamping with an Artistic Stamper script stamp.
Over the roses I stencilled some hearts with grunge paste (PaperArtsy) that I coloured with Distress re-inker in Spun Sugar. Once dry I blinged this up with stickles because I felt they needed to stand out more and splattered some White Dylusions ink spray.
Through the open window is a couple on a romantic walk, one of my favourite, but oldest stamps - I've coloured this with inktense pencils and added some stamped foliage.
