Hello everyone, this is Mo’s Partner. She has asked me to post on her behalf as she is quite poorly at the moment.
Mo completed her May page for Darcy’s Calendar Challenge a couple of weeks ago and just needed to add one word, under her direction i stamped and added the word and took the last two images of her completed page in her mop up journal.
Darcy’s May prompts:
1. Keep a part of the original picture and incorporate that into your design
2. Technique - Make marks... scratching or stamping into texture paste/thick gesso/spackle/glue anything that will hold the shape
3. Add – an image that depicts your star sign/horoscope (drawing,painting,magazine image)
4. Blog your calendar page and link up from May 1st 2015
Mo used copier paper to print her image, cut it out, added DecoArt white gesso then dragged two different wedges through it and let it dry.
The colours are Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Abandoned coral and Mermaid Lagoon.
Plum dots are Finnabair stamp and Plum Archival ink pad.
Progression of background in Mo’s mop up journal. First she splatted some Mermaid Lagoon Distress stain then swept Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed DI pads over the page.
A layer of Abandoned Coral DI was added and the marks in black are using a credit card edge and Black Dylusions Paint. Mo has added some words into the spaces between the marks on the bottom left of the page which relate to a Gemini personality.
The circles are from Derwent Graphik pens.
Mo wanted to use two of her favourite images to depict her star sign of Gemini. She coloured her characters of Molly from Stampotique and Hush Little Bunny Gorjuss Girl with Crafters Companion Spectrum Noir pencils.
I stamped the word Gemini and added it between the two hearts of Polydeuces and Castor the Gemini Twins. Didn't manage to get the word in a straight line but Mo tells me this is perfect so i didn't feel too bad (hmmm).
Mo’s final page for May 2015 challenge where she made marks and added an image that depicts her star sign.
Thank you for dropping by, i will be posting for Mo (taking dictation) over the next few weeks until she is able to.
