Every second week Linda has a new challenge on her blog using the latest Tim book called Compendium of Curiosities 3. This one is page 49 in the book using Texture Paste and layering stencils. You can find all the instructions in the book together with very clear photos to follow.
Having done a mono print on a Bazzil cardstock off-cut for a video on simple colour wheels, I decided to use it the rest for the challenge in the same colour scheme.
I am always amazed how bright the colours are as above when wet and soft they are when dry.
I was very tempted to use the back of my artwork cos it looked so funky!
All crafting had to come to a halt as my cat Marmalade discovered the desk lamp was like a personal sun and he curled up under it to keep the winter chills away!
Once he was warm enough and had moved off, I could continue...Here it is with all its pieces ready to be made into the pop up you see below
I love how the texture paste has dimension behind the puffy stars.
