Gooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy sunny Sunday to you all. Many thanks for the gorgeous entries last week, I saw lots of innovative ways to add some depth to your creations...loved them all. This week is a theme along similar lines... and it is to... BUILD YOUR LAYERS. To join in with the challenge is simple: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme and some stamping and then hop back here to leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry. As ever, if you don't have a blog/web-photo-hosty thing, you can join in via Facebook (simply tag my name) or by sending me a photo by email (you can get my email by clicking on my pic over there *points left*) The theme will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 20th July 2013.
So. Layers! I do love to make lots of layers on my creations and it is surprising how many you can create just by layering your inks, paints and stamping.. not to mention a few embellies to add a few extra bits of layering. My entry this week is a small Burlap Panel. I began with my layers by taking a roughly torn piece of Tissue Wrap and stamping butterflies onto it with Archival Ink. I gave this a good zap to dry the ink and then used Glue & Seal to stick it to the panel. So, that is two layers to start with. Then I used Distress Paints to add colour - 3 layers now. Once that was dried, I added a smidge of Walnut Stain DI to age it... 4th layer. I wanted to add a bit of interest to the burlap so added some Tissue Tape, so that makes it 5 layers.
Next came the stampy bit, by colouring a torn tag... which will be layer 6, colouring this with DP's, layer 7 and then layer 8 with Distress Inks... and then adding background stamping to make layer 9 and Archival stamping (butterflies) which is layer 10 already! Why not add another layer to it? Well, a smidge of Tissue Tape on the torn tag is layer 11 and, finally, adding some little embellies and a bit of extra stamping to create the 12th layer. See how easy it is to layer stuff up? And, if you are clever, you can do a completely flat piece with lots of different layers of inking and stamping... I try to do stuff like that but I always end up bunging a load of embellies on it! Anyways... there you have it :O))
So, whatcha got planned for today? Tis nice that the heat has dropped a smidge... the Room of Stash became the Sauna of Stash these last few days and the instalation of a couple of fans helped but still, really? How hot!!! Anyways... whatever you are up to, have a great day! Thanks for looking... TTFN
