Shades of White Collage

This fortnight PaperArtsy have a fab challenge called shades of White, follow the link!

Darcy has provided a wealth of inspiration, I have come up with this...

On an old book page, my first layer of white was provided by using Pebeo Modelling Paste. This is a soft 'wet' medium, I let this dry for a while before pushing some stamps into it using ELB34 set from PaperArtsy.

The next layer was using PaperArtsy Grunge Paste, a lovely thick paste, again I pushed several of the same stamp set into the wet paste.

After some thought, I decided to use a piece of parchment, I stamped PaperArtsy Mini 19 with Distress Ink Picket Fence. This was my 'guide' as I used a ball tool to highlight some of the numbers.

I added a piece of white scrap card for a further layer of white and to help holding the parchment in place.

A white paper clip make for a great hanger!!

Paper Collage and Paint!

I have been exploring adding a layer of paint after making a collage. This comprises of some stamping and some old book pages. Added some gesso and a sprinkling of Paper Artsy Infusions in Black Knight.
