Take the Challenge with Mou, October 2013
October's challenge is to create something that represents your cherished secret dream!
And here's a close-up
Now let me walk you through the steps.
Collect small paper scraps. Attach them to a piece of cardstock using Gel Medium. Seal the top with another layer of Gel Medium. Let dry.
Create a whitewash with gesso.
Add colors with Gelatos. Blend the colors with your fingers.
Stamp an image using the black stampers Big Brush pen. Let the ink dry completely.
Conceal the facial features of the stamped image with some gesso. Also draw some clouds and a scalloped border at the bottom with gesso. Draw raindrops with Stampers Big Brush pen. Use a PITT pen to create a face of your choice.
I found this text in a book page, cut it into strips and arranged it on the piece. When I was happy with the arrangement, I attached and sealed the strips in place with Gel Medium.
Once the medium dried, I added details with a black PITT Artist pen and White Stampers Big White pen around some of the text strips to finish.
I hope you too will take this creative challenge!
