I have entered this into the Stampotique Designers Challenge SDC 244.

This journal page is called Grrrr...and rrrrr....because I like to be literal and I was in a very grrr mood the other day. Don't know why and now back to my happy place but I did get the idea for this layout. I used one of my favourite Stampotique stamps...I think its called Angel Boy (?) Here goes....


white card
black gesso
white gesso
DecoArt modelling paste
DecoArt fluid acrylics in cadmium red hue and primary magenta
various stencils
Spectrum Noir pencils
Archival ink in black
Stampotique stamp
white pen

I used the black gesso to cover the card, Then I added a few drops of the fluid acrylic to colour the paste and applied this through the stencils. I also applied white gesso through a stencil as well, I also applied white gesso over the top of the stencilled areas using a palate knife.
I added white gesso circles using the top of one of the fluid acrylic bottles.
I stamped my image, coloured it with some Spectrum Noir pencils and cut it out. Also printed out my quote and edged it with black Archival ink.
I then scribbled inside the circles with a white pen.
I glued on my image and quote and did a bit more scribbling.

If you've read this far...thank you very much!

A little segue... who else has spent ages trying to open a garbage bag from the wrong end?!!
