It's the first of June, it's officially summer and it's time for a new challenge over at Mixed Media Mojo.
The theme for June's challenge is SUMMER and the twist is MONOCHROMATIC.
I made a double page in my old ledger.
Here's the how to:
I started off with a pre gessoed double page in my old ledger.
Then added some colours using baby wipes (I used Dylusions paints).
I then put a stencil over the wet paint and removed a lot of the paint with a baby wipe.
..and ended up with this.. not very pretty, but it's just a layer.
I then added some more paint using a brayer (this time I used Dina Wakley's paint).
And removed some paint again here and there..
I then used an old credit card to add some more paint to the sides.
Pushing the paint from out to in with the card lying relatively flat.
I then dry brushed through a couple of stencils.
..which gave life to the page.
I stamped one of Dina's butterflies on book paper
and gave it a quick brush with what was left in my paint brush, cut it out and adhered to the page using matte gel medium.
Finally I added William Shakespeare's Sonnet 18 on my pages.
...and ended up with a finished double page in my ledger and monochromatic fingers..
