Hello my friends!
I am feeling better lately, and almost back to myself. I even attempted some crafting as therapy, over the weekend, with a Mixed Media page. So I'd like to share it with you today;
My page is a Sea/Ocean themed one, check it out:
I started by just sticking down leftover cardstock letter stickers I had in my stash, all over the page. Then gesso'd over the entire page. I then sprayed a few colours of Dylusions spray over that, also sprayed over it with some water, and dabbed it off with a baby wipe, to give a muted watercolour effect.
After that I stamped over the entire background with a Bubble Stamp, from the Kaisercraft Rock Pool Stamp set. In different colours of Distress Ink.
I also stamped the coral/seaweed and shell stamp from the same Stamp Set.
The two sea critters, were printed on canvas and coloured in with a mix of Faber Castell Gelatos and Big Brush pens. Cut out and glued down.
Lastly, I printed out my quote which I felt reflected the piece and my emotions.
Ripped out each piece of the quote from the paper, and sponged with distress ink a big brush marker.
The last thing I did was go around with my stickles glitter glue, around the quote and some spots for "Bubbles" around the page.
I hope you like my piece, its far from perfect but I figure as long as its good therapy and getting me making things, trying new things, etc. Its a good thing.
Thanks for stopping by.
