I've been having a bit of a play over the last few days with some new Deco Art chalk paints, Andy Skinner stencils, Seth Apter dies, and lots of stamps.
I started by putting some DecoArt modeling paste through lots of stencils onto an A3 canvas. I'd put a couple of layers of paint on this previously, then chickened out because the size of it scared me.
I've just got some DecoArt Americana chalk paints, so I manned up, chose a few colours and started scraping!
A couple more colours and a bit of white pen and I was happy with the background. To be honest I could have just played at this bit forever.
I used the same colours to paint a couple of mixed media sheets, and stamped them with the Seth Apter PaperArtsy stamps. These were for the die cuts.
Here are the PA stamps again.
And some from Stampendous.
Some die cutting....
This one's my favourite.
The quote is the title of a Robin Williams film from a few years ago. It was very dark and I didn't particulary like it, but it's stayed with me all this time, so perhaps that's the sign of a really good film.
I'm entering this into the 'anything weird or creepy' challenge at Dream in Darkness, the TIMI Anything Goes challenge at Craft Stamper, and the Put A Stencil On It challenge over at Mixed Media Monthly
Thanks very much for looking, and have a great week x
