Each month Ann sets us a challenge over in the ATDML#Create group and this month it is to use no patterned papers. I'd seen a few pages that were more art journalling and had techniques with brayers and paints, and just decided to give it a go with my Pentart acrylics. I started with yellow and then added in 2 different shades of green and a little gold, all on my brayer (really I should have got an even covering on my brayer, but I just went straight to the card stock!). Once this had dry I drew around several different style circles, and then added some stamping in red and grey inks. I also used my Tando gears stencil and aubergine and cream acrylics to add some gears. Next I had a go at using my brayer with some distress ink, there was not smooth ombre effect for me! Possibly the paper or my brayer, but I didn't let that stop me and used the bubble wrap stamp over the top and punched out some stars and also a circle, and then punched the inner out with a smaller circle. I added a little bit of washi tape and some Heidi swap glittery stickers...and that is it - so mostly just paint.
