Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - R
R is the letter chosen for the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge this fortnight. I was thinking of Romance but then I saw this quote in a magazine (it's an ad for Audemars Piguet watches) and decided to go for Rules. It reminded me of Picasso who was a classically trained artist before he developed his own amazing style. I covered the pages with white acrylic - I prefer it to my slightly yellow gesso. I roughly doodled around the word and decided to use rusty hinge DI and red pepper Adirondack as my ink colours. The ruled lines stamp is by Katzelkraft and the embossed ruler/tape is a CB folder. The cracked BG is a stencil which I brushed ink through and then outlined. I decided to add some rosettes from my bit bag. Finally I wrote a few rules that we come across in daily life.
