I was so thrilled when my order came in from Stampendous,my Andy Skinner stamps arrived!!! woo hoo!
Right away I had to use them and this is the path I took-a Steampunk Travel art journal page-using my cool Andy stamps and stencils!
I have a few steps to share if you would like to join me...
First coated my page with black gesso
Spritzed on Cyan Blue Mister and blew through a straw to disperse the spots
Next,using Andy's Industrial Elements stencil,I stenciled with Mushroom then lightly pounced over in some areas using Quinacridone Violet
Out came the modeling paste-because you know I love texture! Spritzed in Cyan Blue Mister and scraped through the Hurricane stencil with palette knife.
|Just look at that texture- mmmm|
After this was dry,I used Silvery Shimmer ink and Liquid Platinum embossing powder for my stamping.
A few close-ups to share.
I noticed from the close ups that the under stencils appear to have blue in them,that is not the case~must be the rest of the page is sending off color vibes! ")
After the initial stenciled Tornado,I added random parts of it on the page and then went back over the one in the center and added some ink and embossing powder to bits of it.
Next,a few more pounces of Quin Violet here and there,just because I like the color!
When I was finally pleased with all of the color and elements, I coated the page with DuraClear Gloss. I just love the look this gives any finished piece! I suppose this is why it is hard to get accurate photos,but I assure you,it is yummy in real time!
