When I first caught glimpses of Dina Wakleys new media stamps at CHA this January I fell in love with them, I just love her scribbly style. She shows so much freedom in her use of mediums and colours in her work and a great source of inspiration for me, whilst I don't put myself anywhere in her league I have taken so much learning from her style and carefree approach to her art.
Anyway here is my first piece made using her "Scribbly Birds" stamp set.
I have used 3 manilla tags and then mounted onto black card to make a tri-fold piece.
As you can see I have used loads of different mediums on this paint by scraping,stenciling,splatting and brushing. I have painted the circles on and then drawn freehand circles with charcoal pencil. I then added torn words from papers. The birds and the sentiment I have then stamped onto gesso painted book paper and coloured with Gelato's. I then added random machine stitching.
I had a blast making this so thankyou Dina for the inspiration
