For today's AALL & Create GDT post I have made a journal page. I thought I'd revisit Abs' idea of going with a round piece of paper. It is fun to do something different every now and then.
And here is how I made it:
I started out with this stencil and gesso to create a resist. You can't actually see it in this photo so I took one at and angle:
This is what it looks like. I worked on watercolour paper by the way.
I used a blending tool and Distress Oxide inks with water to get this result. I used Broken China, Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin. You can see how the gesso resists the ink.
I love this stamp set and had to use it yet again for the background. I used the same Oxides and a black Versafine ink for this.
Next I cut this die and added little pieces of it on my circle. I also went around the edges with black paint, mostly where the black stamping is.
My focal point & sentiment. I already stamped 'you+me' from set #125 that I used for the background. I coloured the images with Copic Markers, cut them out and adhered them onto my page. I matted the you+me on black card and used it as a base for the two bears to stand on.
I really like how this turned out. My favourite colours too! (Well, at this moment...lol).
