This is my dictionary entry for The Craft Barn Dictionary Challenge - V I gessoed the pages and rubbed some vintage paper distress ink over themI then stamped some vintage images. Think I got a bit carried away and did too many.
Halloween is the theme this week on Tag Tuesday and I enjoyed making these. Once again I went for the contrast of black with orange. Both tags have distress inked backgrounds, sprayed with water. I have used a mixture of stamped images and die cuts. The one with the little girl I have used a stencil with some glittery texture paste.
Faces and figures I am not really good at, so I went for the smaller option of faces. My sewn one is fabric stuffed with 'stuff' and the features sewn on afterwards. It looks a bit girly to me and nothing like Jonny Depp. Mind you it wasn't supposed to look like him in the first place. The stampbord one I drew and coloured with my Staedler triples fineliners.
A second one for this week on Go tag Thursday where the theme is Vintage men. I distress inked the background ( What would I do without distress inks !), and stamped the background before applying two images on separate card. I added some cogs to finish off.
This time for Art Journal Journey I decided to do a Halloween page. I love the contrast between black and orange so went with that. The background is distress ink, sprayed with water. The tree, witch and saying are stamped. The rest are die cuts, and the pumpkins drawn by hand.
I am interested in all types of art and crafts,including altered art, ATCs, painting, and textural crafts, especially embroidery, and felting. I also like to combine paper and fabric in mixed media art. My passion at the moment is fabric books. I love gardening, when the British weather and my bad back allows. My gorgeous grandsons and granddaughter also lure me out of my studio, that is until they are old enough not to make a mess in there
