Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - P
P for plant is my chosen word this week, the verb and the noun. I decided to use gesso to cover the pages rather than white acrylic paint as I have previously done. I wanted to cover the unwanted words but only lightly so I used a thin layer of gesso. I doodled around the words I wanted to keep (I can't believe that was the first thing I did - in the past it would have stressed me out to draw on the pages). I had a picture in my mind of stylized flowers predominantly in pink and purple. I stamped some background flowers with Brilliance starlite black and then added some flourishes for stems with Stazon olive green. The border is a Paper Artsy stamp with Stazon cactus green. I stamped and die cut various flowers and even found 2 dried flowers that I've had for years. I edged the pages with worn lipstick DI.
