Some more drippage...

Once more I had some leftover Fresco paint on my craft mat that wound up on a journal page....

I quite like how this finished up, though for a while in the middle I decided I'd ruined it... daylight, as my friend Sam says, makes everything look different...

 Worked on two pages at once with different amounts of leftover paint!

The left hand one is the one I went through agonies with - at this stage, here, I loved it....Colours are various greens the new Spanish Mulberry (LOVE this colour!) and Space Cadet. The stamp on the left hand side is one of JoFY's new Minis.  The lines are a stencil.

The right hand page is just the SM and SC - love that colour too!  The chevrons are stencilled Snowflake Fresco.

then I went for some dripping with my Bombay Inks (turquoise and white) tipping the page to get the runs to go this way and that... at this point I was tweeting to my mates that I wished I could undo the dripping....

The words helped, though!



 these stamps are by Tim Holtz and got them for a good price at Ally Pally.





Time to rescue the left hand page.... I painted some thin white card with Spanish Mulberry Fresco and stamped 3 of Darcy's steampunk hearts.

Ok, I think I'm happy!

They both turned out great, I am a big fan of drippage. The pink and turquoise look great together.

Oooh see daylight does help. I love your drippy page, but I loved it more before you added the hearts, but only because you can see more of it!! Can't wait to get that mulberry colour and wasn't contemplating space cadet but love the colour on your page!!

Are you taking it at the weekend?

I think these are fab pages Helen and I can't wait to get that Spanish Mulberry. It look fab with my favourite greens. The Space Cadet might have to jump into my basket too! I think the drips turned out great ..... don't know what you didn't like about them.
