The letter O at the Craft Barn and I picked 'ornament'.
Right ladies, this time I actually am on time LOL! So, I picked the word 'ornament', and for this page I made my own ornaments.
I started by gessoing the page making sure I left the word open. Then I took some Faber Castel Gelatos in the colours Guava, Watermelon and Raspberry. I used them dry and blended the colours with my fingers which works wonderfully when you do it on a gessoed later. The grungy hearts you see in the background were made with a stencil and a baby wipe which takes away the gelato.
I marked my work choice with a permanent pen and used Indian Ink to make the ink splatters. The strips you see are leftover design papers which I glued down with gel medium before gessoing the page. I accentuated the strips with a Faber Castel Pitt pen in the olour Middle Purple Pink no. 125.
Here is a close up picture of one of my homemade ornaments. I used Mold Mods to make them, painted them black and added some Rubb and Buff in a gold colour.
