The background is my attempt at practicing blocks of watercolor washes on 140 cold press paper. To "save" them, I used stencils and mixed media. Hehehe. I added an interesting background in each color block, with ink pads, watercolor and StencilGirl stencils. I'm in the monthly StencClub and I get fabulous designs every month to play with. The February stencils just slid right out of the envelop onto my paper. Next, I created a unique design/image in each block.
I continued to create in each rectangle, making a unique design. I drew, I stamped (my own and Seth's), I colored, I used stencils...I just had fun, not thinking about it too much, just using a variety of arts & crafts supplies - I just <3 arts & crafts supplies. After I finished the focal layers, I trimmed them to fit on greeting cards. I created a variety of backgrounds using stencils and my gelli plate.
I picked out a background design to go with each focal layer. Next I used stamps and colors to bring together each focal layer with its background. Over the next several days, I'll post the finished cards.
Below is the complete list of supplies I used. One of the joys creating with mixed media supplies is all the choices of supplies! :)
