Art Journey Challenge: Children


This is an experiment that I was playing with, and I am pleased with the result. It has worked very well. I was using this glorious image for the Art Journey Challenge: Children

I really like this image and find it very evocative of childhood. I could not resist putting these words, from Tim Holtz,  to it either. They felt perfect. The Art Journey stamps I mainly used are from the Grunge set. A fabulous set in my mind. 

So here are some details of my experiment. I started with the Tim Holtz technique acrylic resist. You can see it HERE. I then stamped extra details, mainly from the Grunge plate, and used sequin waste through which I added Weathered Wood distress ink. The main experiment was to also stamp the image onto acetate. I have been playing with acetate a bit recently. When I laid this over the acrylic image I just loved the result. It gave back the image more detail and it also created a wonderful 3D effect to the squatting child. I was well chuffed.
