Hello and welcome.
By now you will no doubt know that I am taking part in The Craft Barn's Dictionary Challenge.
This week's challenge letter is W with the added requirement of using circles in the background.
I am using an old French - English dictionary and so had a very limited number of french words to choose from (33 in fact), so after not much consideration I chose Wisteria.
I used Distress Inks to paint a wisteria bough on to tissue paper which I then matte medium-ed over my usual Antique Linen DI background. My circles come in the form of an Artemio seal stamp which I stamped in Pumice Stone DI
A couple of close ups (although to be honest this page is better viewed from afar!)
Aaargh! terrible stamping (I caught the acrylic block in the spine of the book)
I'm not all that happy with these pages, but given that I had no other pages I could use to start again, it will have to do. X is going to be a challenge too!!!
If you do any stamping/painting or whatever on tissue paper and then want to "cut out" the image to use on your project, "paint" a border all the way around with water (I used a water brush) and then carefully tear through the wet tissue. The tissue will tear where you want it to and not where it fancies!
That's all from me today - thank you for visiting.
A few changes...
