Paperartsy Challenge - Words

We're already at topic 9 for the Paperartsy Themed challenges - this fortnight, we're celebrating all things wordy in our art - single words, book text, phrases, script stamps... got all of those!

 this journal page started life with some leftover pink Fresco paint (Rose) and a little Buff... I added some Heavy Gesso randomly and added Bougainvillea with a wet wipe.

I took the French script Stampotique stamp and Magenta Hue archival ink, then stencilled the words in Bougainvillea ; before stamping the quote (Sara Naumann) and cut it up into small pieces.

Outlined the words with a soft charcoal pencil.
