GPP Crusade #38

Well, it is right at the wire to post, but I have done Crusade #38, Grab a Tissue with Michelle Ward. Seeing everyone’s work is inspiring we all work in different colour palates. I had received something wrapped in blue tissue and already had some nappy liners done with gesso and yellow acrylic. So I decided to go in that direction. That was really easiest stuff to lay my hands on and I had gessoed the pages in the journal in advance. So a combination of gesso, acrylic paint in aqua and yellow, a couple of art stamps, a little distress pads over the top and some thin tape to out line and I was nearly done. Now to link it together, I added calligraphy and a cut off bit from a fabric experiment. It was tricky to write over the tissue paper both when it was glued down well and a bit bumpy and also where it wasn’t quite glued well enough.

My DIL grabbed a banner to put in my blog. Now I am really committed to continue. You can click the banner to read about this challenge.
