Welcome to our last day of Cover-a-Card week. We hope you enjoyed it.
Today, Gay is showing you how she made her vibrant papers she used on a card and Art Journal page.
Let us know what you think ;)
I used watercolour paints and painted and covered a large sheet of 300gsm rough watercolour paper, sprayed with cosmic shimmer mica mists and then stamped with IO cover a card Stamps. By cutting the result into strips it was easy to move them about until I achieved the colour contrasts that I was looking for. I punched a large circle to include one of the coloured areas that I really liked. Playing about with the shapes gave me an idea how they could lay on the card and then I chose the sentiments to compliment the shapes created by the strips.
I made a journal page with one of the strips.
