2020 #13 We grow great by Dreams with Tracy Scott Stamps {by Lynn Good}

2020 Topic 13: Lines

Lynn created a seamless contrast of hard and soft lines and a wonderful vertical line of stamped images that draw your eye through the wonderfully coloured piece.

Hi everyone, it's Lynn Good (Memories on the Page) with you today, and I'd like to share with you an art journal page that I have created for this week's topic - Lines.  
My Interpretation of lines, well for this one, I have created butterfly images in a vertical line and there are manually added pen lines around the background leaves.

I had no idea what I was going to do but I had just received this gorgeous Tracy Scott stamp and wanted to use that, and I wanted to challenge myself and use some cool colours with the warm colours.  I am not a cool colour person but loved how this came out.

I first applied white gesso to the page, I often do this when I have no idea what the page is going to do and at least I have some 'tooth' to play with.  But I decided to apply Paper Artsy Paints - Gumboots and China with a make up sponge through Stencil PS123 - this created the leaves in the background.

I then stamped the butterfly image from Tracy Scott's stamp ETS39 onto tissue and adhered it to the page at the top and bottom in a line.  I was not fussy; a little ripped here and there but that was fine.

I then painted around the area of the butterfly in Snowflake Paper Artsy Paint to blend it all together.

I have used a black marker to roughly highlight around all the petals and stamped around the images with Tracy's mini stamp EM57 in black ink.

Now I was happy with the background - onto the focal point.  I have used the same stamp (ETS39) and stamped it onto Heavy Smoothy cardstock and fussy cut out.

Using Paper Artsy paints - Cherry Red, Coral, Yellow Submarine, Slimed, Orchid and Bubblegum I have coloured the image.

I have added highlights with coloured pencil - both fluorescent and plain.  I find the Paper Artsy Paints and coloured pencils (I used Prima Colour) blend beautifully.

Finally I added the title from Stamp ESN45 - again stamping on tissue and then adhering to the page. Here are some close ups:


I hope that you have enjoyed this process; one of my favourites, stamping onto tissue and when it doesn't come out right, that is fine, it blends to be part of the page.
Til next time - happy crafting.
