Imperfection is beauty

Back to Visible Image and a little something to brighten your day I hope! This mixed media piece combines stencilling leftovers; sparkly texture paste; stamping and frantage. What more could you want !!


Here are today’s star products:




I began using a piece of card where I had blotted ink off my strobe stencil when using it for another project . I love left overs. Actually sometimes I prefer them! I thought my scrap inked card would look nice with some sparkly texture paste on top.




Next I stamped and embossed some flowers, stems and sentiment using black sparkle embossing powder. I experimented a bit adding some frantage fragments as texture and some black micro beads after the flowers were cut out. I also stamped onto inked scrap card for added interest and intensified the colour using my Spectrum Noir acohol markers.






The morale of this story is never throw away your interesting scraps! Also a little texture can breathe life into any project.

Until next time.
