Fresco style album page

Only one post from me this week as it's been a busy one & I've been blessed with the dreaded Lurgy so full of coughs, sneezes and wheezes so apologies in advance for any typo's or incorrect links as it's quite difficult to type and sneeze at the same time.
Thought I'd share my latest  Journal cover using PaperArtsy and Rubber Dance Stamps.


The style I was aiming for was Flaking Fresco, like ancient mural plaster painting.
By applying Coral Rose and English Rose acrylic randomly over a coat of white gesso this is dried with a heat tool until tacky dry. A coating of Calypso Teal covers it all and dried using a heat tool again. When dry I rubbed over areas of the journal board with a wet wipe exposing the colours underneath. .. which does resemble flaking Fresco.!


For the front focal piece I decorated a Tando substrate in the same way as the chip board album page using Coral Rose, Tangerine Dream and Calypso Teal. I stamped a PaperArtsy Zinski image and Rubber Dance texture stamps around the main image.


Doodling with Posca Pens and embellishments finish off the substrate when glued to the front page. I'm not sure if this is finished yet I may add a few words or a title, but for now I'm putting my pens and paint down. I'm hoping to fill this with lots more Fresco style pages.


I'd like to enter this page into the Orange, Red and Rose Rubber Dance Colour Challenge

Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy lurgy free weekend..

Hugs Tracey xx
