I have a media board for you today as my inspiration
for this months challenge.
I started with home made tissue paper which I made by
stamping directly onto plain tissue paper with black
Stazon ink with various stamps.
next I glued this onto the media board with Deco Art Matt Medium
which was followed with DA modelling paste put through
a distressed harlequin stencil (Tando mini's)
I used a watery wash of DA Gesso once dry follow
with a second coat.
Next came water colour in greens and greys apply them
very watery and dry between coats. Once happy
I attached my triple embossed heart and crackle
Lastly a trickle of Deco Art crackle glaze with a little green
mixed in was applied to the top of the media board.
At the bottom I typed the word ART & mat it
onto black card.
I hope that I have inspired you today and that you will
come and play along with us today.

Hi Everyone I have a project for you that I did for the
Stampendous's January Catalog.
I Started with cutting the plaque from the foam board what
I would say is I would use Tando substrate next time as it
doesn't buckle although this effect did add to the piece in
the end. Crackle paste was used around the edges with
a palette knife.
I then painted the board with gesso followed by the crackle paint.
this was followed by the Prussian blue hue, along with titan buff,
& phathio turquoise. This was randomly applied along with the
wax I kept knocking it back until I was happy with the result.
A final wash of quinacridone gold pains grey and ultra matt
medium (Andy Skinners dirty wash) was put over the top to
age it all. Translucent paste was put through the Picasso
tool and sprinkled with chunky gold embossing
powder, and heat set.
The pink your life people, houses and mushrooms were
stamped onto black card then clear embossed and
coloured in using the prisma pencils.
These were all attached to the plaque so that they stand
slightly proud not flat against it.
- Stampendous products used :- Pink Your life stamps used were Mushroom rubber stamp,Whisper friendship rubber stamp, Whisper houses clear stamp. Picasso shield/stencil tool Dream weaver translucent paste, & crackle paste, dream weaver palette knife, Gold chunky & clear embossing powder
- Deco Art:- Media white gesso, Crackle paint, acrylic paint in the following colours Prussian blue hue, Colbolt turquoise, Quinacridone Gold, Paynes gray, titan buff, white tinting base, ultra matt varnish.
- Prisma colour pencils along with Sansador and paper stubb, Foam board A4 sheet cut 1/3 of the bottom cut to make the plaque, hair wax, mod rock, and some gold handmade paper & black card.
