This week for my AALL & Create project I made a mini book - it is a triptych. I'm calling this one 'Girl Talk' as it features Janet Klein's lovely girls and Bipasha's beautiful sentiments from Background Voices.
I started with several gelli prints made from braying PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints onto white card. I used darker colours than I normally use - Inky Pool, Captain Peacock and Slimed.
I stamped paint with the Totally Dotty stencil over the paint, then added more stamping which I heat embossed in white.
I used a white Brilliance ink pad to stamp some Reverse Stars into the background, then added gold paint around the edges and some splatters too.
Inspire Washi tape was torn and acts as grounding for my girls. The images are coloured with Copics and fussy cut right up to the black line.
White Posca pen was used to add some highlights on the images and also to add some white splatters.
A Tim Holtz bulldog clip was painted and acts as closure for the triptych.
Work in Progress:
1. I brayered paint onto a gelli plate and took several prints. I brayered white paint onto the Totally Dotty stencil, spritzed it with water and stamped it onto the painted card. Next I stamped the sentiments with Versamark and heat embossed them in white.
2. I added more stamping, using the small script stamp from Blooming Beauty, and heat embossed. The Reverse Starts were stamped in white and gold paint scraped around the edges of each page along with some gold splatters. #2 Washi tape, Inspire, was used to ground the images.
3. The characters were stamped and coloured with Copics, then fussy cut.
