Hello. Welcome. I should have been crafting, OK I probably should have been doing something else very mundane, but instead I did a little retail therapy a la net. I recommend it on a wet Sunday afternoon, especially if you are lucky enough to get some bargains. Well, they felt like bargains when I put them in the shopping cart. Hopefully they will still feel like bargains when then arrive and I unpack them. I do occasionally unpack my little crafty packages and think "Why did I order That??". Is it just me????
Inspired by Ellen Vargo over at PaperArtsy I really wanted to have try some of her bold collaged ideas. Darcy made a comment on my AJ post, hi Darcy, that it's the technique not the products, so I decided to have a go after a root through the stash.
I started by brayering fresco finish Limelight and Butternut on a piece of card. Then I grabbed a couple of shades of yellow. I loved the citrussy mix but decided to add orange and ocher as well. I love how the limelight seems to give a lovely glow in the background. Quite wonderful.
I cut up my brayer card and stamped in DI Barn Door using stamps from PaperArtsy Kids Plate 3, USFD1, SIBM4 and LPC003.
I didn't know deli-paper that Ellen referred to but figured it was maybe translucent or semi-translucent. I decided to search through the inked scraps box and see if there was anything suitable. I found a piece of white paper I had covered in sentiments and decided to brayer it with a thin coat of ochre. Whilst having a moment of brayer wild abandon my brayer fell apart! pause, mouth open, huh!, uhhhh.... We can rebuild it? we have the technology? I hope. Yep, up and brayering again. Gosh, big sigh of relief.
Then I doodled
and doodled. A pile of upside down skateboards maybe??
