[Challenge win: Top rocker at 613 Avenue Create challenge]
It’s Monday, and it’s time for yet another Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This is my final week in the Designer Spotlight for January on the Monday Challenge, and I must reiterate that I’m beyond delighted to have been accorded this honor.
This week, the challenge is: Let’s Be On Time
My project is a mixed media composition for a birthday. A birthday present needs to be on time, after all!
I started out by adding texture to a background cardboard using stencils and modeling paste. I applied heavy gesso after the modeling paste dried, and added acrylics with water spritzed over them. After this dried, I applied metallic wax on some raised parts of the texture.
For the strips of paper, I used gelprinting / monoprinting with stencils and acrylics, and a bit of pouncing of acrylics through a stencil. I ran a watercolor pencil at the edges of the paper strips, and added water for a vignette effect. I then added a thin coat of glittery acrylics for a beautiful shine. ❤
I then used acrylics with water spritzing on some diecuts, and added them to the composition, followed by more acrylics. I made polymer components using molds, and over a coat of gesso, I brushed metallic acrylics and metallic waxes over them.
After assembling all the above components, I also added some art stones, over which I added a brown acrylics wash employing more water spritzing. For the sentiment, I used card stock and stamps with dye inks, with watercolored edges. Finally, I added some acrylics splatters. Ta da!
So that was my project. Do make sure you check out the fabulous creations from the talented Design Team at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge for more inspiration, create your project, and join the challenge!
