It’s time for a new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday, which is Make It Masculine.
For my Masculine page, I started by adding some leftover pieces of Voyages Fantastiques papers from Stamperia by collaging them onto the page using Liquitex matte gel medium. Then I applied some Ranger Crackle Paste using a palette knife and left it to dry overnight. Next I added Caramel and Earl Grey Faber-Castell Gelatos; scribbling the gelato onto the page and then using a wet paintbrush and baby wipe to disperse the colour. I also added touches of water down Salvaged Patina Distress Paint to the edges of some of the papers. When completely dry, I added the two male images to the page using glue tape, which were also from the Voyages Fantastique Stamperia pad and I edged using Ground Espresso Distress Ink.
For more inspiration please pop over to Try it on Tuesday to see the amazing creations from our Guest Designer and the rest of my Design Teamies (grin!). I hope you are inspired to join our challenge; it would be lovely to see you there!
This steampunk styled page reminds me of the SpareParts Festival, which is local to us and takes place in the summer. This festival is described as a large-scale transport themed art piece and includes some very creative modes of transport.
There are some amazing contraptions, like this one (smile!).
I hope that you are staying safe and well!
Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.
