and welcome to my blog where today I am showing a project made for Country View Challenges. It is the 1st of November and that means that a new challenge starts today ! Why not play along with us and have a chance of winning a GBP 20,-- voucher for the shop. Just make sure you read all the rules first... You'll find them on the CVC blog.
Anyway the theme for this month was chosen by the lovely Rachel and she went for "stars".
Here is my art journal page :
And here is how :
I started with a piece of white card stock. Not sure what is is but it is very smooth. Smoother than normal card stock and not as smooth as glossy card stock. I stamped the stars (the stars are from a Dina Wakley set called Grungy Stars) with Versamark because I wanted to heat emboss them with white powder. This will act as a resist when I apply the ink.
This is what that looked like... if you can see it, lol...
Here is what it looks like with all the inks applied.
Next the centre piece, stamped with archival ink on the same paper and heat embossed with black powder so it is nice and black.
Here is what it looked like after ink was applied.
This is the finished article. I added some background stamping with a script stamp from PaperArtsy from the Eclectica set ESN11 and grey ink. I matted the orange star on black paper to make it stand out more and added some sewing thread under it for more interest. I added a quote from a pack of 'small talk' stickers by Tim Holtz and doodled around the words and the edge of the page...
That was it ! Thank you so much for stopping by today !
