Well actually not quite...! Is any one singing the Coldplay song yet??
It's no secret that I love Lynne Perella's Paper Artsy Stamps.I bought this Egyptian set (LP040) last Autumn and, apart from a quick tag just to play, I haven't really used them.
I saw Kate Yetter's fabulous layered page on the Paper Artsy blog and loved the way she used the black to contrast with the gorgeous layer and colours.
I used a page in my square Kraft journal and stamped and fussy cut some of the images. The main image has just part of it coloured in with a gold pen. I coloured some of the other images with Distress markers using red, yellow, blue and green. The tablet also had a touch of gold pen and the sun was stamped on to some Infusions stained paper - Golden Sands made the perfect mustard - I also added some to a book page which I ripped before making it the background to my images!!!
The sun was placed on top of a Seth Apter die cut to create some rays.
I cut up parts of the image to create a column and also stretched one (I cut it in half)to add behind the main image.
Paper Artsy have a challenge 'Mustard - the colour' which I am going to enter via instagram.
I am also entering again at Art Journal Journey for Rikes' theme - 'The Colour Yellow'
I seem to have lost my way again in catching up with blogs - it only takes a couple of days away from the computer - I will get to you....eventually!!
Thank you for your comments here, I do appreciate it and get really annoyed with myself for not keeping up!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
