Playing with new stuff


I've been so engrossed with cutting up images and making new ones that I've neglected some new things I recently purchased, so today I decided to play with them all!!  I scraped fibre paste through an Andy Skinner stencil, once dry added some Lindy's sprays, I recently got the French heritage set. I added some gold DA media fluid acrylic to some golden tar gel. This wasn't actually as drippy as I thought it was going to be, so unfortunately I ended up with bigger blobs than I really wanted, but hey ho.


I added some stamping to the background in iced spruce distress ink. Stamped in timber brown stazon the Dina image and Clarity word on separate card, cut it out, glued it on and outlined it with dark brown pencil along with some of the stencilled area. Used bronze pan pastel over the textured fibre paste. This photo was taken outside in the garden.

I think it looks fab!! Apparently if you stir the tar gel a bit it goes more drippy..

A most mysterious looking page. As I think I have eluded to before Sam - I love the fact that you experiment so much and you are usually right on target in my book!

Hi Sam, sorry I'm late but I'm playing catch up after my holidays. I really like this, fab texture and the Pan Pastel looks brilliant on the fibre paste. Have a fun birthday, and thanks for joining in with our challenge at Country View Crafts. Sue xx
