I’m having a bit of a blog re-shuffle again, Thursday is now my new Creative Expressions posting day so here is another make using Sam Poole’s Art Sayings stamp plate available from Creative Expressions.
For this one I’ve used the Art Sayings stamp plate to create the background by stamping over a surface that I’ve first textured with old sewing pattern tissue and then stippled on some acrylic paint in areas and added some gesso over the top to create this lovely textured look.
The sentiment is also from the Art Sayings stamp plate and I think it nicely matches her wistful look don’t you think?
If you are wondering about the image it is from one of my catalogue of images and ephemera that I’ve been
unable to throw out collecting slowly over the years, she is one of my favourites.
I was inspired by this month’s Ranger’s Video except I tinted my photo in Photoshop Elements as I wanted to keep the details and I’ve actually used Archival ink to stamp the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 The Voice Of Art receipt stamp onto the photo but I did use Ranger Distress inks on the edges and on the whole tag to finish it.
I’ve also used some of the new Vintaj Patina and some acrylic paint on the metal photo tabs and the eyelet to change their colour and distress them.
Hope you have survived all the photos, I did go a bit photo heavy today!
Have a lovely Thursday.
EDIT: Ok so this is how behind I am on my blog hopping, I did not realise that the photo tinting video was part of Tim Holtz’s 12 tags of 2012 theme as I came across it on the Ranger’s website and not his blog. Well what the heck, I’m going to enter my make into the June challenge, it isn’t exactly the same but it is inspired by the same technique – hope I’ve not broken any rules LOL!
