logophile (noun) - a lover of words
I'm just in time for the latest Paper Artsy challenge, which is all about words. I've recently come across "bleeding art tissue" - Eileen Godwin has done a video about it here.
I'm using watercolour card, and I cut some hexagons out of the tissue paper, then laid it on the card and brushed some water over the top. You need to wait a few minutes, then remove the tissue, and the colour remains. Added a few spatters too!
I've also used my all time favourite Paper Artsy quote stamp which is by Artistotle. This stamp is quite old now, but has had a lot of use over the years.
The dragonfly is a recently bought Sizzix Bigz die, which comes with a texture fade embossing folder. I cut it from a piece of Dylusions sprayed card and used some gilding waxes too.
Happy Bank Holiday weekend!
