Found the latest GPP Street Crusade yesterday and just had to have a go – especially cos my mind was in turmoil over something at the time. The brief is to use acrylics in journal pages but using only a scraper – or old Credit card/store card – and maybe some stencils of some kind.
I gessoed my altered book pages first, using an old credit card, then applied the paints in layers, spritzing with water now and again, followed by stencilling using a fern stencil I love but haven’t used very often. It’s a metal stencil so I couldn’t move it around enough to get random ‘off the page’ imprints, which I would have liked.
