Next I took some wax rubbings of my heart as well as of rubber stamps and painted with watercolour. Another technique that Michelle told us about last year whereby the wax resists the paint. This also gives an awesome effect and I have got so much better at it now that I am not trying to make it perfect! I also used my paper punch on this page and then found such a wonderful title for it when looking through my cuttings box. My cuttings box is something I started a while ago, just cutting out titles and pictures from magazines and throwing them into a box. Its great that we can make art without it costing too much money. I am so up for recycling whenever possible. The only thing that stops me is space! I have so many lovely boxes that I intend to do something with and I'm afraid to say I am stockpiling them :lol: Anyway, here is that page...
Next I used some modelling paste pushed through a stencil and then painted with some Stewart Gill paint that I had leftover from another project. This would be great with a bigger stencil as this one was a bit small. The page just had glimmer mist as a base. A bit more stamping and the page was done.
This next page was a bit of freestyle...I havn't been doing arty stuff for very long and sometimes I think I put too much thought into it but I am starting to find that I just go with the flow occasionally and get something done without thinking. These pages are starting to come together in a way that appeals to me and this next page was one of those. I don't even know what I did cos I just 'rolled with it'. I just love these heart shaped doillies...I bought them a while ago and always knew they would come in handy.
