I had to play catch up on this challenge as didn’t manage to do much creating when the parents were here so I had two weeks worth of cards to do.
I started with week 11 and the prompt was
So I grabbed some scrap that had texture paste through a text stencil and added that to my playing card. Then gesso. I then added distress crayons (I really wanted to play with them for some unknown reason so out they came!)
I did a little stencilling and then grabbed Jofy stamps added some text down one edge. I then coloured some book print with the crayons and stamped the new Jofy mini stamp flower head.
I cut it out and adhered it to the card. I then did some additional stamping with the circles in the same mini set.
I added some bits of white paint to these and drew in a stem for the flower. I then dropped some of the pebeo fantasy paint onto the flower for the stamen.
The next week’s prompt was
and I decided to gather some contrasting materials to add as a collage. These are all things that I was attracted to that contrast…. so my opposites attract!
I started with a white gesso base and more distress crayons. Then added some stencilling to bring back the white. I then added a raffle ticket that was on the desk. I then arranged a cluster of papers of different types (vellum/waxed paper/patterned paper) and stapled it to the card. Then added the canvas strip and the thread and mirri card.
Finally I added some stitching and doodling.
Not exactly a thing but an enjoyable collecting of fun patterned and textures and colours from my desk!
