You are all probably aware that I love backgrounds...using anything and everything to create weird and wonderful textures and designs. I want to share a quick and easy way to use up left over alphabet stickers to create something a little bit different! The end result looks like this...
First, firmly stick down the left over stickers to your surface. I've used a Tando panel for this. If your stickers are old and have lost their stick somewhat, glue them down! You will be adding inks, gesso and water over them, and if they are not stuck down firmly, the stickers will left up from the surface.
gesso to give an even, white base. Sponge because it gives a thinner layer, and you still want to see the shapes of the letters!
Dylusions ink sprays. I used pink and orange, then flicked a few splats of red at it! A little spritz of water to get them all running together, then a blast with a heat gun to dry everything....
stamping, and then edged the whole panel....
Stampotique image. Once stamped, I masked off her head and legs, then stamped with a text stamp to give her dress a little interest.
stars, and a text phrase finish off the whole thing!
I hope you like her...it's a nice way to use up old stickers and create something new!
