This Thursdays Challenge is 'Playing with Paint'
This is something completely different for me! If you click the photo you can see the embossing texture.
Colour washed background paper.
Then I used my just arrived Tim Holtz masks - aren't they BIG! I don't do big - and when I saw them I thought - I won't be using them! But encouraged by my very talented friend Paula and being snowed in - I thought I would give them a go!
I placed a tiny part of the mask onto the paper and then applied more paints in different colours.
With a white pen and using the bandanna method, (it was my first attempt) I dotted around the masked areas. Then embossed the areas which were outside the mask.
It's given the book cover a lovely texture on the dark areas which emphasise the masked area.
I assembled the notebook with my BIA and added an acetate cover - to finish it off.
