Another word for it might be: 'stash' to be used later on, on a project.
I made a list, I've used the first 6 on the front cover of the recycled book.
wooden / paper / grey board alphabets
Fabric lace and lacy/ structured papers
The cover looks so pretty.
I adhered another copy of the gelliprint and covered it with two layers of PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Satin Glaze, otherwise the paper might absorb too much moisture in the steps to come, and also it acted as a better base for the crackle I want to apply in a future step.
I air dried the crackle paint, then lined the stencil back up, and applied a mix of 50/50 PaperArtsy Grunge Paste and Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic (Snowflake, FF15) with a palette knife.
LOVE this PaperArtsy Stencil by JoFY (PS396)!
This, adding finishing touches, is always my most favorite part of a project.
I try to balance dark and light to create depth and interest.
It needs a bit more color.. I sponged Worn Lipstick Distress Ink - to areas and sprayed it with water.
No.. it needs Infusions!
Infusions - Royal Blood; dried with a heat tool:
I am not sure whether I will use all of these fussy cut images, though. The dried fern leaf has been adhered and covered with watered down bookbinding glue.
LOTS going on.. I know, but I like it!
White splatters... extra color added to the images, white border around the dried fern leaf and around the gelli print as a frame.. also 3 small tags..
Where's the typography?
.. the word 'timeless', stamped script in the background, and of course the script from the Printed Tissue!
Creating or collecting fodder is timeless.. I find inspiration in them, and sometimes use them years later. Just imagine a creative space without fodder.. it would be a quite boring space.
Keep saving and creating fodder! Look at the list (above in the post) and save it all!
A start could be creating a book with just stamped and fussy cut images; as shown in this post.
Find the background and project for these fodder images later, maybe years later. Easy..
