I had painted two wood panels black and was planning on using them for mounting a couple of beeswax pieces onto. At the last minute, I decided that I wanted to paint on them instead, so I started grabbing things (acrylic paints, brayer, old card for scraping, a round lid, some drywall tape and some bubble wrap). I started rolling, scraping, stenciling and stamping. Fun fun, fun!
I also added some text from a vintage Latin book. I took Scotch tape and burnished it onto a page in the book and then pulled it up. I didn’t want a lot of the paper to show, but, because the painted background color was dark, I left some paper so that the text would be a little clearer than it would had I removed all the paper. To remove the paper, just wet the back (sticky side) of the tape and rub until you take off all the paper you want. The text should remain on the tape. I then tore the tape into smaller strips and collaged them onto the painting. I can’t remember where I came across this technique but I think it was from a pin on Pinterest.
We have some bad weather coming our way and I plan on staying in and creating art for the next three days! I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and gets some playtime in!
