Drippy drips

Hello everyone,

Thank you everyone for all your nice comments re my carved stamps yesterday,I may carve a special one as a give away soon.....oh no you all cry....actually yes I know, Ingrid,I still have to make you one!

A journal page today from my newly created Journal...where else of course.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

That Craft Place,Girls but no pink

Craft Room challenge,Make your own background

The Mirror Crack'd,The Body Beautiful

Artist Trading Post Exchange,Anything Mixed Media Goes

Watercolour paper,gesso,gelatos,pitt brush and micron pens,Unity stamp,crafters workshop and wendy vecchi stencils. The dragonfly was die cut from a gelli printed page. The leaves were formed from using the negative cutouts from a die the lovely Ingrid sent me.

If you like your gelatos this technique is fab. Gesso the page,rub your gelatos on,spray water on and let drip....perfect! Check Youtube for the Donna Downey videos,really helpful

Hope you like it

  8. Hello Donna,
    A very interesting take on our Challenge, and we at TMC are all for pushing the boundaries to see where the theme takes you...'Body Beautiful' can be literal or abstract. This work would qualify as conceptual and adds immense interest to the onlooker as well as thought provoking, Great make Donna, and many thanks for joining us this week at The Mirror Crack'd.
