I am still feeling very inspired by Wilna Furstenberg as I prepare for today's edition of Saturday Scrapbook Stamping. This page was inspired by a layout that she did for her Art and Design workshop at the old Big Picture classes. My page is a little different from Wilna's, but I did want to share what inspired me to get started and go in this direction. I am also using some of the cut files that she included in the class downloads (the die cut title and light bulbs).
This will be an adventure, as I have never stamped with mist before. Won't you come and learn with me?
I started by spraying mist from my April kit into a styro plate:
And inked it up. As you can see, the mist pooled quite heavily in some areas:
So I stamped a few times before inking again, and repeated across the center of the page:
I liked the look at this point, but felt like it needed a bit more. So, I dripped the remainder of the mist onto the page:
And this is how it looked when I was finished:
I still wanted a bit more variation, so I gave it a quick shot of mist from about 12 inches above for a fine mist, and then took the nozzle out of the bottle to make few more small drips and splatters with the straw:
I liked it at this point, so I let it dry while I did my die cutting, and then mounted it to a sheet of black and white cardstock from my kit:
Now I decided to have a bit of a play with my homemade texture paste:
I wanted it to be yellow, so I dumped some homemade yellow mist (I thought I dumped too much, but it turned out about right):
I mixed it up and added a spritz of Gold Lame as well:
Then I put the light bulbs on the page where I wanted them to be:
And picked them up one cluster at a time, and added a thick layer of the colored paste:
And then set the cut files on top of the paste. After they dried a bit, I pressed them down into the paste a little bit more:
I die cut the title out of a light yellow cardstock scrap, but it was too light, so I decided to mist it with my homemade mist:
There, I like it better already!
I added my photo (after rounding the corners and doing an offset mat on two PL cards from my kit), some scraps, some of the yellow vellum hearts, and some of the black sequins, and a few dabs of Paper Glaze where the light bulbs hadn't adhered completely, adhered the title, and came up with a fun, artsy page, very much inspired by Wilna, that used quite a few bits from my kit, and stamping in a different sort of way!
I hope I inspired you to break out your stamps today!
