Just one more challenge for this month. The 123 Challenge blog for July had a fantastic tutorial by Gina Rodgers that really inspired me. I am usually a bit of a neat, clean, control freak when it comes to creating, so this challenge to use lots of different mediums inspired me to 'free up', get down and get dirty.
1. Colour = Aqua/ Teal
2. Word = "Thing". Could be anything, something.
3. Technique = Create a Scene:...i.e. layering, texture,decorative background etc.
I have used dyed tissue paper as my background. Then, added some patterned paper and stamped in a few places. Next, added a coat of gesso to tone everything down. I added some texture paste around the photo and attached the metal bits which had been coloured with alcohol ink ( and let dribble ) and the tiny sequins and glass beads. Added some tissue tape, coloured with texta, a piece of lace that was glimmer-misted and gessoed,rub-ons,clear acrylic letters that were stamped and foam mounted ,distressed letters.....great, inky, dribbly, fun.Good news......since this photo was taken early last year, my daughter has stopped smoking.
