For my first post of 2017, I played with PaperArty Everything Art stamps for this Mixed Media/grungy panel.
Don’t tell my sister but I ripped into a pair of her jeans for this!!! That’s not as cruel as it seems, she knew I had the jeans, she just doesn’t know that I decided to rip into them to use for art projects!
Extras:- Calico, denim fabric
Rip denim to approx. size of white/greyboard panel, then adhere to panel, ensuring edges of denim are lovely and frayed.
Onto calico, swipe Blueberry and Lake Wanaka Randomly stamp some of the Everything Art stamps, tearing into small panels. Also stamp paint brush and paint tubes several times.
Fussy cut the brushes and tubes, adhering to scrap cardstock to provide stability to those elements.
Create a pocket with another piece of denim. Adhere to the panel, applying no Gel Medium to the upper edge. Layer the various stamped elements to this and tuck the paintbrushes and paint tubes inside the pocket.
Finally, finish by adding some stamped Media Tape to the panel.
This panel could be propped onto an easel, a reminder to seek courage when creating – whether the courage to create with media that is new to you, working with different colour palettes or the courage to accept new art adventures that come your way.
