Not This One, The Other One

Hi and hello everyone.  Got to be quick cos the challenge at PaperArtsy is closing soon.  I have been working on a Linda Cain inspired project but the one I was going to submit has become something of an adventure so I am doing a second little make from the leftovers.  Watch this space for the original idea.  Well, not this particular section of my space cos obviously it will be on a different post but.......  Anyway, enough waffle, on with the art.

Linda was doing this technique where she stamped into texture paste here.  I've used some chipboard and applied a good layer of paste and then stamped using swirls from PaperArtsy SIDD05 set.  I don't think I spritzed enough water on cos it stuck a bit to my stamps but great texture.  Coloured with various generic acrylic paints.
Stamped a lady from PaperArtsy LPC001 onto tissue paper and then stuck it on.  Couldn't remember what glue to use so went with hope and glossy accents.  Added some hand dyed wool trim and a bow.  I don't think the camera liked the bulky wool.  Ended up taking this inside with shadows so you could see the tissue paper allows the texture to show through.  The ripped edge of the tissue paper also makes a subtle boundary between the bright background colours. 

Entering this for

  3. What a super project, Gail! I did see Linda's post on her own blog, but the one on PaperArtsy was much more detailed and finally made sense to me! Love the blues in your piece and the tissue stamping is brilliant! Love it!
