Hello my Lovelies ^-^.. I have to do this in 2 post AGAIN.
I did do a bit of work on these all inspired by all of you...
The front started with some vintage paper I painted it with
watered down gesso, stamped in green with one of my favorite
I first painted it with watered sown acrylic paint, that left it
shiny so I used the gesso, so it would take any stamping..
Yippee I got to use my new stamps I won from the sweet Bibiana.
I love them and have a few ideas how else to use them :O)..
I ended up stamping them again on gray packing paper.
I cut out the smaller squares out of some cardboard pages
with playing cards on them, these are the back of them, I
stained them with tea and stamped around the edges, not
to neat:), the stamp covers most of it, just needed some
lines, I used a Celtic stamp from my set..
The back of the coasters, I painted over the gesso with tea,
Miss Patty, another awesome Magpie uses tea to paint and
so many other things, Magpie Patty, I know some of you visit
her, I have been wanting to share her with you, she is a mixed
media artist, photographer, seamstress, makes mandalas out of
flowers and more, I'd encourage you to fly by her nest..
I gessoed on a kids stencil, as you see it has cracked on it own.
I went over the stones with some watery black water paint.
I cut, fringed and fitted some tea stained gauze,
cut out in the middle so you could see the rocks.
I stamped all around the edges in black ink..
The finished triptych in in the post below this I hope,
You know how I'm not good at that :O)..
