I also had some spinal surgery on Tuesday so catching up with my online class has taken a bit of a back seat. I got myself motivated today to get it done and I am really happy with the results.
Week 4 of my Get Artsy class was Fiber Paste, which gives the effect of handmade paper. Using various stencils I applied the fiber paste to water colour paper. When it was dry these were cut into small blocks to arrange around the photographs. The blocks were then coloured with Gelatos, Distress Stains, crayons and inks. I also spread some of the paste over a texture plate to see how that would come out. I had to be patient and wait for it to dry (something I an not always good at!!) which paid off as it came out really well. I then put it through a doily die cut. It was coloured with Gelatos and India Ink.
