Something bolder (for me!) to share, four panels which appear as feature article, Veil of Summer in the Jan/Feb/March issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.
I received the PaperArtsy Emma Godfrey stamps (EEG09) to create samples with and when I completed the samples for PA, I decided to keep inking up the stamps so that I could submit. I essentially created mixed media panels along the style of those samples except this time I also included some wonderful Redlead stamps (available HERE and HERE.)
The texture on the background was simply achieved by the way in which I applied the Frescos, with a baby wipe.99.9% of the time, I will ink fussy cut edges but I wanted a sense of lightness so no inking to the abraded edges. I worked with quite a thick cardstock which made fussy cutting a bit of a chore but at least the flowers are substantial.Some of the flowers have three layers. Did you notice that the stalk is actually the straight (wonky but straight!) edge of the cloud, a cloud which I used as a grassy border.They are not my “usual” style but more often these days, when creating to submit, I am enjoying shaking it up a bit, not worrying too much as to whether the art appears as though it was made by me or not.Lots and I do mean, lots, of silicone glue creates dimension, making the flowers pop out from the panel.I should have tinkered around with colour saturation as the colours are slightly “off” in this final panel, needing a wee bit more of the orange warmth to come through on the background.Fiddly work to ensure the flowers stayed attached to those thin stems!I still have a fair few published pieces to share with you.
In the meantime, thanks, always for your visits.
