I loved Lelainia Lloyd's journey tag book on the Pater Artsy blog, in particular the lovely effect she achieved in her backround with two contrasting coats of paint brayered one over the other and then sprinkled with water. After 5-10 minutes the water can be dabbed off to leave these wonderful 'painterly splotches'. I did Fresco Finish London Bus over Zesty Zing but the I think the red was too dry by the time I sprinkled the water and not enough lifted off:
I stamped and added my home made texture paste through a Jofy flower stencil 009 and dabbed a bit of yellow on the petals while the stencil was still in place:
I LOVE this stencil and love how these flowers came out:
I created two tags in the same way and this time I sprinkled the water while the paint was wet. It worked and to my great delight I did get proper painterly splotches :)
I ws so pleased that I've just got to show the tags close up:
I journaled on the backs of the tags and they are stuck down with repositional glue dots. I really enjoyed doing this page.
