Today Jennifer focused on stamping with other than ink and/or stamping on other than paper. Here are my samples.
stamping with markers
stamping on canvas and stamping on vellum (wing)
stamping with paint and paint texture (wing)
painting with markers (my favorite, I think)
stamping on acetate and bonus rolled canvas rose technique
Meanwhile, I'm not neglecting my other favorite places to hang out online. Over at the EWV (Everything Wendy Vecchi) yahoo group, list mom Lori announced the latest Making Art! challenge. Well, she announced it last week, but I completed my piece yesterday. The challenge is based on the project on page 27 of Wendy's second book, but if you don't have it, all you need to know is that you should include a face and polka dots. Since I'm in the steampunk tag swap over at ATT, I fulfilled this challenge with just that. I think it's a fun piece.
They're subtle, but there are polka dots in the background, achieved with one of the techniques from the Inspiration Showcase classes. And the dots came from a Wendy stamp. The gears on the left are on an Oxford Impressions stamp, and (mostly hidden) is a very cool stamp I bought at Absolutely Everything last year, but sadly, I have no idea who makes it. The gears are both grungepaper, cut with Tim's mini mover and shaper dies and from the idea-ology line. More polka dots made with glaze pens.
But the star of this show has got to be art chick from Wendy's Art Rules set. I did alter her up a bit. First of all I gave her a big hat, which is often seen in steampunk images. I just cut it freehand from some scrapbook paper, my intention being to use it as is. It is a great paper with embossed gears from DCWV, but it didn't pop with the background, so I covered it with clear embossing ink and black embossing powder and that did the trick. I also enhanced parts of her face with glaze pens. More polka dots on the hat, and another of those birds I did yesterday when following along with Tim's technique on the Inspiration Showcase class.
