Remember the Now


Over on the PA blog this week Helen M created a journal page using grunge paste and tissue paper which you can see here. I did up to this bit on a wooden mdf plaque, but then Helen's turned decidedly pink, so I went my own way with it.


Painted with chartreuse and then dusty teal, edged with pea coat and then using very little paint on my finger I rubbed over the grunge paste which I'd stamped into and the crumpled tissue paper.


Close up of the stamped into grunge paste and


The scrunched up tissue paper.


Then I stamped the LP main image onto the background and onto a piece of hammered white card. Cut out and coloured with distress ink markers. PA mini flourishes, alphabet and script stamped randomly in black and olive green stazon.


Metal embellishments added, leaves and a cog.


An idea-ology buckle and stamping from the #hashtags TH plate stamped in ultramarine stazon.

I've not had chance to check the PA blog since the beginning of the week so must rectify that asap.

If your fab plaque is anything to go by I'll definitely like the inspiration for this one (except for the pink, lol)! I love the colours you chose as alternatives and the tissue and stamped GP have made wonderful texture. Lovely stuff!
