Up Up and Away with a twist.

Morning everyone from sunny Turkey, I hope where ever you are on the globe that you are happy and healthy, and have peace in your hearts.

Today I'm sharing a little mixed media creation made for the Stamps and Stencil challenge which is Up Up and Away with a twist which is to use Autumn colours.

I do hope it qualifies, I have used Neo II crayons Intense pencils, Stabilo All Pencils in both black and white as well as a Fude Pen and White Signo gel pen. Dinky stencils for that's Crafty and two stamps out of one of Finnibair collections.

To start I scribbled some crayons over the page and added water to activate the colours, then quickly applied the stencil and with a dry cloth removed some colour. For other layers of colour I scribbled the crayons onto a saucer, activated them with water until I had a quite a thick colour this was then applied through the stencil in the normal way. I did find this difficult to do it hour the colour seeping under the stencil because the mix was still quite watery. I also used pens and pencils in the stencils in the old fashion way.




I'm sure to playing again today at some time so hopefully you will return. Take care and have a fab day.

  1. Beautiful background, Deb. Love this Up up away creation with balloons.

  2. This is so fun Debs. The colors are just beautiful together and I love that some of the paint seeped through - makes it look like there are more balloons and background things behind the front balloons - it's super. I just love balloons and your little gal is darling. Great way to start my day - smiling! j.
