Animal Farm

Animal Farm

Hi There!

This week we are going
to play with the animals
To be specific the new
Zinski stamps by PaperArtsy

Here's Helen Chilton to get
us in the mood

One of a Kind door sign.

Cut your mount board to the size required
 and blob on some gesso.

Next sprinkle the Brushos into the Gesso -
I used Alizarin, Lemon Yellow and Turquoise

Then take a credit card or palette knife 
and scrape it out - instant colour.

Here's the piece fully covered and with
 a few nice scratch marks for texture.

I then decided to knock it back a 
bit with some stencilled gesso.

Nothing too precise, just rubbed on
 with a baby wipe.

Then get stamping with the Zinsky rabbit...
 (I think?)

To colour in I've added the same Brushos 
to white paint for a pale-ish layer....

...and then used neat Brushos to add
 darker shades on top.

Add white paint to bring out the eyes 
and then stamp a bunny ear border. 
I've also added extra pattern 
to the upside down one.

I then over stamped the border in black 
as I didn't think it stood out enough 
and printed the words on the computer.

Here we go with some chain and washers added.

A close up of the 'one of a kind'."

A fun start to the week
thank you Helen

Love the inspired treatment
of the odd one ...  Her expression
seems to be saying "what?  
How did I get here?"

'Till tomorrow
