Hello crafty friends. Thanks for popping back. Today I have another layout to share.
To begin my layout I dropped some Rust Artist Ink on my craft mat. I gave it a good squirt with water. Then using my scrunched up piece of cling wrap I ran it through the ink.
Using my cling wrap I stamped my page,
I did the same thing using Walnut Artist Ink building up the layers.
Once again I used this technique using Soot Artist Ink.
Here is a picture of another layout using the same technique. However I used much more ink and it was more solid coverage.
I prepped my photo by backing it with box cardboard before matting it on black card. Then again backing it with box cardboard giving it lots of height.
Using my finger I rubbed Leather Colour Paste around the edges of my page.
I then spread Heavy White Gesso through a stencil.
I then moved onto my embellishments. I used Leather embossing Powder on some chipboard that I later cut up.
To colour my white flowers I dropped some Walnut Artist Ink onto my craft mat. I sprayed water onto the mat as well. Using my paintbrush I ran it through the water then mixed it with a small amount of Artist Ink. Painting my flower with a light coloured coat first. Then I mixed the water with more Artist Ink making a deeper shade. Dabbing this onto the outside edges of my flower, the darker shade was drawn down the petals. Repeating this with more ink maker yet a darker shade.
These are my finished flowers.
After the Gesso was dry I did some random stamping with black ink. (It wasn't as dark as I would've liked...time to re-ink my pad I think)
Using my Rust Artist Ink I painted some hessian leaves.
I painted my chipboard with Heavy White Gesso.
It was time to assemble. I added some micro beads, glass beads, some more flowers & some jute ribbon along with my prepared bits.
To finish off I covered my photo and gave the page a splash with some watered down Heavy Black Gesso. And I was done.
Here's a few close ups...
Thanks for stopping by for a look.
