Hello lovelies, nice to have you here again!
For my second project for the challenge over at Country View Challenges with the theme "First signs of Spring" I made a page in my little sketch pad.
I liked the idea of the single flower from my first projekt, so I decided to make another picture with only one flower.
I took my sketch pad, that I use for different "try-out"-projects, glued together 2 pages and prepared the surface with a thick coat of white Gesso.
Then I brayered three colors of acrylic paint on top and did some stencil reverse with my new stencil from Stamperia, "Steampunk" by Antonis Tzanidakis.
It wasn´t as visible as I wanted it to be, so I stenciled with brown ink over all. Then I did some background stamping with stamps from LaBlanche and black Archival ink.
To tone everything down a little bit, I went over some parts with white Gesso.
Now I took a diecut flower from Tim Holtz´s Wildflower dies and made a tulip out of it. I only put some red and green acrylic paint with my fingers roughly on top and when dry I glued it onto my page.
Then I used a very old sticker from 13@rts and did some shadowing with a black charcoal pencil around the flower and the wordstickers to make them stand out more.
Lastly I doodled some lines to the edges and framed the page with a black crayon.
Here is my little Sketch pad and some of the pages I did before:
I hope you like my little page as much as I do and feel inspired to make something spring related for the challenge too! You know, you can win a 20£ voucher for the shop!
Thank you for your visit!
