Bless My Mess


Some days, it is good to play  with your crafty stash.  No plans, no expectations, go with the flow, forget what you should be doing, have some fun.   This afternoon I actually managed this.
I had seen that the Stampotique Designer Challenge was ' A Splat of Paint on your work.
Just the prompt that I was looking for, nothing I like better than an excuse to create a bit of mess.


I decided to make a small hanging using these Stamptique images, which were water coloured.
The base is recycled packaging painted with acrylic paint, Mermaid blue and  Mocha.  A tatty piece of Kraft card to mount my top layer on.
It was great fun 'splatting ' with paint. I have to admit I watered the acrylic  paint down a bit so it would flick off the brush easier.
By this time the whole bench was dotted [and me].  It took longer  to wipe things down than splash them.
Even the fibers  look  tatty and messy.

Thank you for stopping by, I do realy appreciate the comments you leave.
