Welcome to the Darkroom Door and Art Journey blog hop! All 23 members of the Darkroom Door and Art Journey design teams have joined together to bring you a 5 day creative extravaganza! Each artist will inspire you with a project using stamps from both of these fabulous companies.”I appreciate this is a lengthy post so if possible, it would be wonderful if you stayed with me to the end as you need to keep reading if you would like to be in with a chance of winning.
This is the assemblage/mixed media art I created and yes, I did manage to include lace! As I am a Darkroom Door DT member I received Art Journey stamps to create with, in particular the Baroque Swirl and Eyes set. This is the first time I have worked with Art Journey stamps and I tried to make use of as many stamps from the Eyes set as possible and to also incorporate the Baroque Swirl. Alongside those wonderful stamps I also wanted to incorporate at least one Darkroom Door stamp. Scratches background stamp was the perfect stamp for the appearance I was aiming for, adding touches here and there, which is how I used it on both the canvas and the wooden cube.After painting and adding texture paste to the canvas and wooden cube, I set about stamping (onto tissue paper).
The main photograph doesn’t show the Baroque Swirl stamp so here is a side view of the canvas. You can probably see the texture a little bit better in this photographs as well. I really like how the Eyes set also included sentiments. I was especially happy I was able to “stamp” the Eyes of the Soul stamp onto the lace. One of the eyes fitted perfectly on the faces of the wooden cube but of course, it meant one eye facing only in one direction, that is until I stamped onto tissue paper, flipping it over to allow me to create this effect. I repeated this so that the eyes are also on the side of the cube that you cannot see in this photograph.
Glossy accents were added to all the tears giving wonderful dimension to the tear stamp.I didn’t want to leave the top of the cube blank, even though I knew the canvas would be glued to the wooden cube.
