…when it beats for others.
Thanks for popping in. Was cleaning up my artroom, in readiness for next week, and got immersed in a piece of scrapart. Remember the Doodleology Petal-heart blot from Friday? When I said Leonie would love this? Yes. that scrap…
Just in case you missed this step, let‘s do it again…
ink up Doodleology stamp with black Archival Place the Stampboard heart on the inky stampmat Cover with a piece of copy paper and rub hard all over. Voila!
It went from a scrap of paper to a mounted scrap of paper. Here’s how I mounted the copy paper scrap on a piece of Stampboard:
Hold to the light to position. Make registration marks on the back, so you know where to wrap.
Clip the corners.
This is the gear. Brush it onto the stampboard. Place the stampboard, glue face down onto the back of the scrap.. Flip and burnish. Flip back and add glue to the side flaps as you wrap. Avoid getting glue on the front. Perfect little board.
Then it went wong. In fact it turned into to a bit of a twain weck…
You know how it goes. You have a good idea, but it doesn’t work, so you add another idea, and it just gets worse. And worse. One hour in and you’re wondering how much longer it’s going to take before you see a light….
Them you reach the Bloggy crossroads. Either it sorts itself out, this sad looking piece of scrap, or it doesn’t make the Blog cut – and you start again. From scratch.
At that point, you throw all caution to the wind and GO FOR IT. Red ink on a Gelpress, black Archival ink dragged round the edge . White Posca Pen dotted and smeared. The lot.
Still looks pretty ropey, way too much red. So out with the yellow and blue brushes!
Ahhh. Now that’s better! Bit dark, but hey. Let’s give it a big white frame, to let it breath…
Like it now. Went from not liking it at all, to liking it muchly. Give it a readson, add a message – a perfect scrap.
Have a lovely Sunday.
Love and Hugs
