New Month, New Challenge, ABAC *

Nearly Christmas lol..... 

There is a new challenge over at Anything but a Card for May and the theme is Inspired by the Masters.  I love Da Vinci, Monet, Manet, Van Gogh - actually the list can go on.  Seeing as I have Da Vinci stamps so for me it was a no brainer.

I had a 2012 Diary to alter into an Art Journal.  

I coavered it initially with frayed natural calico, layered onto top with a piece of lined and finally hessian/burlap.  I sprayed all of it using colour washes.  The effect was too dark as I was quite heavy handed (as usual) so I wiped neat bleach over the top to tone it all down.  I then stamped the images/words with stazon onto another piece of calico.  I wiped it lightly with distress inks.  

Voila all done!

Why not head on over to ABAC and join in with the fun and play with your imagination.

Hugz to all
