2021 Topic 10: My Favourite Colour
I have created 2 journals: Mushrooms, Birds & Flowers.
begin with I had a look through my stash and found 2 gelli prints that
spoke to me. Both have the teal color and also the moody red color
(which was quite difficult to photograph as my camera changed it to a
more reddish color). I used ESC22 mostly for this journal.
be able to stamp onto these backgrounds I needed to think of a solution
to make the stamped images pop. This technique forms the core of both
projects, so I will explain it here and then go on to show you pictures
of each journal.
You will understand that you have to leave the project in the stamping platform for all of these above steps; one stamp at a time as you add more colour to the image.
teal on this background is so splotchy, and moody as far as I am
concerned, and these stamps are just right for this project. This
picture shows the depth of the red as well.
I will love using these notebooks, or maybe somebody else will...
The words 'JUNK JOURNAL' were heat embossed in white. It's an easy way to add detail to a dark background as well.
So that was project one. Onto the second one...
Using the same steps mentioned earlier these flowers got a beautiful underlayer of muted color from the background.
All the stamping being one layer : it's pretty amazing how much depth one can achieve by using this process.
I've added stencil PS096 to my collection quite recently and have, and will use this one a lot.. it is so versatile!
Even the back of the notebook has been stamped on with a stamp from set ESC26.
A close-up of all the beautiful detail : the pop of red from the Brown Shed Fresco Finish paint is very nice on the berries too!
Have a go yourselves; try something from this post you were inspired by; at least tell me about it.
