I started with an old wood board (about 7 x 12") I found in the garage and painted it with Gesso.
Eco-Friendly acrylic Paint in Sunflower and Coral
Paper - idea-ology Paper Stash - Lost and Found
and maybe some text paper...we'll see as we go along, not sure yet, just know I like the color combination.
Like the paint but I found it was VERY easy to squeeze too much out of the tube. The nozzle is small so there is no putting it back in!
This time I opened the bottle and used my finger to mask some of the Sunflower color. Just a different effect than the brush.
Adirondack paint dabber - silver.
Stampers Anonymous set - School Desk
Multi-Medium to adhere to the wood panel in random places.
Ink the stamp.
Then using NO acrylic block, press down in random places. You might also stamp on a paper towel first, to get variation in the ink color.
