Although my summer studio is confined to a tiny table on the deck and a small bin of supplies with which to work, it has a stunningly beautiful view and a lovely breeze off the lake! In addition, with gates at both ends of the deck, it acts as a giant playpen to contain Yoshi, my Dog Guide Foster Puppy so that I can work without worrying about her getting into trouble! She's even got a little wading pool to play in. LOL
VIVA Las VegaStamps Plate O' Rubber #1399 (Mary Vogel Lozinak's design) and Mary Beth Shaw's Gears Stencil.
I started by randomly putting paint down on my page using blue, orange, black and a bit of green.
Then, using a semi-dry brush technique and an antique white, I applied paint using a small brush and the Gears stencil.
I stamped some of the stamp images onto deli paper, using dark brown ink. I then tore them out, added them to dictionary paper using matte medium and an old credit card, and when they were dry I tore them out leaving a bit of a border around them.
Before adding the stamped images, I traced around them and painted a blue background to help them pop a bit more. They were adhered to the orange strip so that they'd look like they were rolling downhill.
Some white lines were drawn in (see last image) to represent motion.
When that was dry I doodle outlined the letters with a fine permanent black pen.
