Hi and welcome. Today I'm sharing with you the layout I've entered into this months ARTastic Challenge, with the additional criteria of adding paint.
The photograph I used cried out for the rainbow colour spectrum.
For the criteria of paint, I had first applied a thin layer of gesso and then brushed in layers of different coloured acrylic paint over a stencil. Once the original stencilled background had been made, I was able to create my 'mop-ups'. The background behind the photo is one of these. The negative stencilled effect suited the photo more than the original piece made.
To create the leaves I used a number of different green- shaded distress inks smooshed over white cardstock and used the Tattered Leaves die. The base cardstock was stamped with archival inks.
Pop on over to artasticchallengeblog and check out how the team has used this fabulous inspiration artwork.
Catch you soon,
