Finished page :Unfurling browns and golds
My sketchbook page today started different to the way I have been working over the past few weeks.
First I put watered down glue onto the page from a seed report book. I smeared it all over with my fingers. FUN!
I then tore up small pieces of scrapbooking paper and stuck them all over the page. I love using text on my page as a background as it adds a wonderful texture to a page. I layered glue over the top of the paper to keep it all flat.
I smeared red brown, mid brown, and chocolate brown all over the page, until I was happy with the effect. I took a towel and wiped a little paint off in selected areas to see more of the papers underneath. I used a circle shape and a flower stamp in the wet paint for added texture.
When it was dry I printed part of a flower stencil in yellow brown on the page and added a tear drop cookie cutter print in brown red on the page.
I used gold paint on a commercial flower stamp. I love gold paint!!! The took some sequin waste and using a stencil brush I added more texture with red brown paint.
I used the stencil brush around the edges of ta maple leaf stencil to create more texture. I used red brown and mid brown for this.
Using a mixture of gold and red brown paint I stencilled a curly flower over the top of the page.
Finally details were added with a gold pen.
