WOYWW 281 – Lisca gets messy!
A few weeks ago the CSI challenge was to do a layout about being left or right brained. (see my blog of Oct 14th). I discovered I am very left brained (maths, science, logic). I’m trying to be right brained (music, art, creative). You can imagine that mixed media is outside my comfort zone and that I don’t do ‘messy’. But of course I’m going to try. Who knows, I might like it....
Well, every tutorial I have looked at mentions the word Gesso and ModPodge and modelling paste. These things were not available here (so I thought). I have since found a Spanish company that sells this stuff and yesterday my parcel arrived! Woohoo! (I bought the biggest tub of gesso they had, just lets hope it doesn’t dry out....)
Here is my desk last night. There is a 12x12 page with my first attempt at being messy. There are palette knives, a stencil, some bits of sponge and a large tub of gesso. There are also some acrylic stamps that arrived with the gesso. I managed to get some sentiments in Spanish. Very useful for when I do workshops with local ladies.
Here is a close-up of the stamps.
In case you’re wondering what I did with the dolly stamp I had on my desk last week... I made some large tags. One with ‘happy birthday’ on it for a birthday girl, and another one with a Bible verse on it for another friend.
Then just to finish, I’d like to show you what I found growing outside our cave house the other day.... yes, they are autumn crocuses. Aren’t they lovely?
Thank you for visiting my desk and I look forward to visiting as many people as I can over the next few days. (Last week I started at number 1, this week I’ll start at the end I think...)
Bye for now. Hugs
