Items I used included:
- Embossed 12"x 12" embossed paper from my stash.
- Mont Marte Black, White Gesso and Impasto
- Black acrylic paint
- Small long nosed squeezy bottle
- Palette of Watercolour 'brights'
- StazOn black
- Stampendous stamp 'Cling Vintage Note"
- Kaisercraft and miscellaneous flowers.
- Little Birdie butterfly
- Scrap Girl 'heart' flair
- Prima White wire thread
- Cheese cloth- white
- Tim Holtz Dyslusions Ink Spray 'Crushed Grape'
Firstly I prepared my paper with a coat of white gesso and while that was drying I mixed some Impasto, black gesso and water together and when it was at a consistency that could be poured from a small long nosed squeezy bottle with a small hole cut at the end. I felt that the impasto had slightly dulled the the colour so I added a small amount of black acrylic paint, mixing the paint and mixture together with a little more water and a good shake of the bottle.
I drew free hand with the squeezy bottle making stripes and heart shapes using the tip of a palette knife to roughen the edges of the paint.
After it had dried I sprayed the paper with water and then added 'grape' watercolour in different quantities in different areas until I was happy with the effect. When it was dry I used the same colour to splat around the painted areas.
The next step was stamping some script around the painted area and cutting up 4 pieces of cheese cloth. I frayed/distress the edges; leaving two smaller ones white and spraying the other 2 with 'crushed grape' Dylusions ink spray.
To complete the page I backed my photo with grape and black cardstock, layered the cheesecloth, added flowers, the butterfly and flair to my page. I felt it needed something to frame my photo so I wound the white wire thread into a circular shape and added over the page.
