Time for the second Craft Barn Quotes and Lyrics challenge. The two words are SILENCE and DAZZLE.
I've chosen a Confucius quote -
If what one has to say is not better than silence,
then one should keep silent.
I've used thick cartridge paper and sticking to my 10 x 8 format. I found an A4 sketch book I can stick these challenges into, just need to decorate the cover!
Spritzed some Tattered Angels (the ones that were working!), followed by some Dylusions through a stencil. I flipped the stencil over and used it as a stamp on other parts of the paper.
I've not had much practice at handwriting words, but found this format is quite easy and pleasing to do for beginners! Stamped leaves (from a Dylusions stamp set) - some in Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, and some in black Stazon, which I clear embossed. Bit of a disaster, I was going to use black Archival Ink but dropped the pad, face down, into my box of clear embossing powder ..... I did try and wipe off the powder, but it is the fine detail stuff. I now have a lovely gritty ink pad - ho hum! it may come in useful!
Anyway, back to the project - I decided to use glass paints for the leaves, as I wanted a transparent colour. The glass paint did sink into the card, so I then covered some of the leaves with Glossy Accents. The glossiness has not come out in the photo.
The moth (stamp is Designs by Ryn) was stamped onto white canvas - as I wanted a brighter image - and painted with the same glass paints, then cut out.
