Having lost my mojo a couple of months ago, my mojo is now in full swing so I am making the most of it! These creations are yet another entry for the Simon Says Monday challenge, now my third entry, and for the Simon Says Wednesday challenge which is "make your own background".
My challenge to myself today was to create a grunge look without using black ink, black paint or my beloved black china pencil.
This was the result...
Again, just using a plain piece of A4 300gsm cardstock I started layering acrylic paint in shades of lilac and brown.
I later added some white and then stencilled a few designs in gold.
I also changed the colour of my Tim Holtz ornate book plate by brushing it with gold gilding wax, and added some gold metallic thread.
I have to admit it was hard for me not to pick up some black ink, but I really like it without black.
I am hoping in not the too distant future to start a Youtube channel and upload some process videos to show how I create this artwork, I will let you know when I do.
In the meantime, enjoy your day! xx
