Winter Birthday

I started with the insert for this one and a pine cone stencil. Using black modeling paste through stencil onto white copy paper text vellum I got the first image. Then sprayed the stencil that was still wet with modeling paste with water and placed this on another piece of white copy paper text vellum for my cover mono-print. Both pieces got gold and black splatter and cover piece got the black stamped sentiment. Cover piece was die cut with circles forming frame then trimmed and mounted on Kraft cs. This was mounted on white cs base. Added Silhouette cut needles and insert piece to inside.

Splatter tip: I have been really working on my splatter technique and have found the tool of my choice is a fan brush. I use a downward flick of the loaded brush off my off-hand index finger. For this project the black is my modeling paste that I dipped the tips of the brush to load it but then smear that on a stamping block that I spray with water to thin the medium. Gold is color burst on a paint pallet sprayed with water. I allow the paint to dry, but then when more gold is needed in the future I spritz with water to re-activate the color.

Thanks for sharing your time and now I am sharing this with :

  1. Thanks for sharing your splatter technique. I haven’t tried it with a fan brush before, so will have to give that a try.
    I love the look you got with the black modeling paste.
