Hope you are having a good week
Just a quickie post from me to share this make with you....
Those that follow my blog regularly will know that I'm not the best person to make use of colour....
I really do admire other artists that use colour and I try and give it a go, but I keep getting pulled back to the darker/grungy shades, I guess that's where I feel most comfortable. ( Its not just in my arty makes....my wardrobe pretty much consists of grey and black....I know, I know its grim, but they really are my comfort colours...)
I created a monochrome background using Rangers Texture paste, when it was dry I used a mixture of distress spray (hickory smoke) along with distress paints (black soot & picket fence)
I also used a mixture of Tim Holtz stencils
I used an original vintage photograph and cut around the ladies,
( there were originally three ladies in the photo but I used my artistic licence and removed one.... i liked it that the two ladies mirrored each other)
I then mounted them onto an old vintage page from a french ledger.
I wanted to highlight the ghostly friends so I used a white signo gel pen.
I then created a patchwork of strips from some offcuts, I stamped using some number stamps and added lots of stitching.
I then added more layers, an old playing card, vintage train ticket stub, an old french bank statement and a rusty key....
The stamped stars are from the tim holtz correspondence set....(yes....I cut the stamps!)
I also used the halftone and rings set
The number stamps are from Hobbycraft..
Feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate each and everyone.....
Have yourselves a lovely week
