Old Favourites


Over at FSC they have a theme of old favourites, so I decided to see how many I could use. The page on the right started off as a pan pastel page just to wipe off the excess from the sponges. So I did the same to the left page and gave them both a coat of diluted transparent yellow oxide.


I added lots of layers, including stencilling, stamping, more transparent and acrylic paints and tissue tape until I was happy with the background. Then I added my favourite DW stamp, lonely girl.


Close up of the stamping using PA minis, a couple of different scripts and the splatter and also a couple of the DW larger scribble script stamps, together with the TH idea-ology tissue tape.


DecoArt media paints, watered down quin gold, quin burnt orange, cobalt teal hue, over tissue tape, stamping and black gesso through a stencil.



Tag with a TH stamped quote which again is an old favourite, especially as it's on wood!!
