I love layers, so looking forward to seeing our challenges for the next few weeks.
I started this spread alongside one I was doing for Life Book (see the next post) since the first steps were layering. I'm going to number my photos as I go through the layers - click on anything to see it larger.
|Layer 1 : book paper and washi tape (Life Book page on the right)|
|Layer 2 : watercolour crayons activated with water|
|Layer 3 : Gesso (Life Book page on the right)|
|Layer 4 : stamping with script stamp (unevenly)|
|Layer 5 : under papers. Torn and cut as a scalloped edge|
|Layer 6 : sectioned off my daily journaling with washi tape|
|Layer 7 : Paint sponged through stencil|
|Layer 8 : paper serviettes|
|Layer 9 : apply paint with bubble wrap|
|Layer 10 : small stamp used as a border top right and bottom left|
|Layer 11 : light blue paint sponged through stencil|
|Layer 12 : pencils and pens|
I still wasn't satisfied with the spread, and realised that the only place where purple/pink appeared was in the under paper scallop borders. I was also aware of wanting to create another stencil shape and an extra flower so that I had uneven numbers which are more artistically pleasing to the eye. Lucky layer 13 :
|Layer 13 : paint mixed and applied through stencil|
|Layer 14 : white pen|
