2021 Topic 12: Sustainable Crafting
was kindly gifted some flowers for my recent birthday. As I unwrapped
them I was shocked at all the packaging so put it to one side to use on
my project... some tissue along with the plastic wrap.
I have always liked using tissue paper for stamping - but often as a translucent layer. I stamped the leaf images from Courtney Franich Set 6 (ECF06) with Fresco Chalk Acrylic (Lawn). Stamping in paint doesn't always give you 100% of the detail of stamps (compared to ink) but I was happy with the result.
I drew (with a compass) a circle on the plastic wrapping and cut it out - before sponging some Fresco Chalk Acrylic (Waterfall). The circle represents the Earth.
Although not visible I like the contrast of the two textures of the materials - the plastic earth and the fragility of the leaves stamped on tissue paper.
added some additional stamping around the outside using the branch
stamp and some of the circles from the circles / text stamp image.
