'Hopefully it's sizzling June... when beautiful blooms burst into life. Whether they're stamped, stencilled or hand made, we want to see flowers as the main focus of your mixed media project'
Well, this is a challenge that speaks to my heart. I'm sure I've said it many times but I love making flowers! As you can see, my project features quite a few. The substrate is a piece of grey board, salvaged from the back of used sketch book. I adhered some torn book pages to the surface, and stenciled the top half with modelling paste.
Once this was dry, I gave the background a light coating of gesso, allowing some of the text to show through. I then used several colours of Distress Paint, blending and allowing the colours to dribble and mingle, by spraying with water.
I then stamped the face onto a piece of lightweight white card. The stamp by Indigo Blu, is called 'Jane'. It's a large size, A6, so is perfect to stand alone. I used black Archival Ink, and coloured the image with Pan Pastels.

Just got word of a couple of challenges this will meet so I'm going to hop over to the lovely Indigo Blu, where the challenge is 'May...... all your Dreams come True', I think this dreamy image of a young Jane is longing for a summer full of romance!
