Normally, I have a theme or idea worked out BEFORE I start creating, with this one, the theme kind of crept up on me afterwards!! I wanted to go bold and bonkers with colour....so I did!
I started off by giving the wood a thick coat of white paint, then heat drying. This causes the paint to bubble up, so you have texture as well as a white base to add the colour to. This pic shows the bumpy texture nicely...
Bombay Ink range, with a couple of the Daler Rowney pearlescent colours in there too! I very simply dripped the inks down the sides of the block, drying in between colours so no muddying occurred. The edges were given the same treatment..
(Jenni Bowlin) of a playful child seems to fit my theme too...love this image, I hope there will be more in this style from her! A small word snipped from chit chat stickers completes my ATC, a bit bright, but very cheerful!
