This week's challenge (here) was a duo tangle: you can only use Dex and Bunzo tangles. I found it hard, and I'm not sure why... maybe because they are so different I didn't know how to make them work together? Maybe?
Anyway... here it is on a Bijou tile (2 in x 2 in). The left side is the unshaded version, because I forgot all about the shading until I saw the scanned, larger version :). I thought is would be fun to show them both.
File Folder Journal - In progress
For some reason I thought that using a file folder would be a really easy way to make a journal where I could play with my hand-made stamps.
OK... so far, it has taken a lot more work and thinking that I thought it would. Mind you! I'm having fun, but I don't think it will ever be as "quick and easy" as I thought.
So far, I have folded it and unfolded it about a hundred times ... lol... ok, maybe not quite that many, but... a lot!! I put a couple of coats of gesso on the outside (it was patterned and it had a big purse design on it - you can still see it in some of the pictures). Then I painted it with water soluble wax crayons - I just felt like it, no other particular reason:
Then I grabbed one of my designed stencils, and went at it with Golden acrylics and a bit of glazing medium.
I pounced the sponge over the inside pattern until the sponge was completely out of ink - just to give it a bit more interest and tie the pocket with the interior a bit.
