Hi everyone! Hope y'all had a great weekend! We saw "Pacific Rim" yesterday, pretty entertaining if you like super ginormous monsters fighting super ginormous robots...which we do. :P Anyhoo, nothing finished to show off today BUT I'm getting some layers done. :D
At the end of the week I got a package that was COVERED in stamps, apparently the postage meter thingie was busted which is an AWESOME score for a creative scavenger like myself. :D So I immediately cut all the stamps off of the box and since it was still sticky on the back, I just grabbed my art journal and stuck them down on one of the inked up pages I did earlier:
I left it for a while, not sure if I wanted to finish ink spraying all of the other pages first or what. But in the end, I got bored and decided just to start layering on this background a bit. I slapped on a little gesso and when I realized I had used too much (of course), I scraped some off (which I then turned around and mooshed onto another art journal page in a different book, nothing goes to waste! LOL) and then used a baby wipe to thin out some areas so the yellow on the stamps would show through again.
Then I took a bit of orange and gold paints and stencilled using PVC punchinella. I'm nowhere near finished with this spread but it's a lot fun to just stick stuff down in the moment and come back later. :D
