I started with a gesso'd chipboard and spritzed with navy blue ink and and a home made spritz of white acrylic paint - I sprayed more water on and let the ink run.
I used a variety of inks; versafine, memento's and distress inks. I used bubble wrap, harlequin stamp and bottle tops to create some layering on the background.
I gesso'd some book pages and stamped over it and then used light blue chalk ink. I went around the edges with white acrylic paint as I felt it just didn't 'pop' enough.
I used a script and alphabet washi tape and then had stamped my previously unused JOFY stamp on the book page. I then used my kaisercraft 'tape' stamps over the top.
I love all things naughtical, we have pictures of beach huts and lifeboats around but for some reason this sentiment really sings to me.
I have a vivid memory of my Mum saying this to me when I was going through a difficult time and it stayed with me.
Effy Wild has a Sunday Swoon each week - a chance to showcase things we did that made us proud and we can share them so others can swoon over them.
What are you proud of this week?
