' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Clean and green

Thursday 21 April 2016

Clean and green

Sometimes it's nice to make something CAS with lots of white space. It feels like a holiday, and allows going back to Mixed Media and messy art refreshed and renewed!

Paper Artsy challenged us to use some white space, which doesn't need to be white, just empty, and this is what I did:

I intended to try stamping a background with an acrylic bloc, ink and a spray of water.
After several tries, I came up with a plan B that afforded me much better control: I used the reverse of a rectangular shaped polymer stamp and didn't need the spray of water, the most uncontrollable aspect of the technique!
The focal image and the branches are from the Paper Artsy set (HP1008) and I stamped partially the collage image, selecting only the face.

I don't know how I managed to resist adding anything else !

  2. A really striking creation Christine, I know just how difficult it is to leave all the white space, I have the same temptations to add just a bit more.
