As you know from previous posts, I have been 'trying' to have a go at mixed media backgrounds and failing dismally. Kate Cranes DVDs have been played over and over again but as soon as I look at a page to start it - my mind just becomes blank! So this morning I didnt even think about it, (if the worse came to the worse I could always tear out the pages and start again :O) so I prepped the pages with gesso, waited patiently for them to dry then spritzed them with water. I swirled Spun Sugar and Peeled Paint distress stains all over the page, closed the pages and pressed them together, opened the pages and then scraped on some white paint with a credit card, spritzed Dylusions Garnet Ink spray over some Prima masks, and VOILA - a page that I quite liked. So whilst watching the chickens destroy the garden even more today I cut up paper squares, inked them with Ranger Vintage Photo, stuck them down, added some Dylusion toadstools and inked up and painted Doolally Doris. And here it is - all ready to link up to The Kathryn Wheel.
To say I am chuffed with myself is an understatement - my first 2 pages in my sketch book just about completed. Honestly, I can't stop opening my A4 sketch journal up and looking at it lol.
Thanks for looking
