Inspired by Ellen Vargo

Published February 22, 2014 by isisimaginings

Evening, hope everyone’s having a nice weekend so far.  I have had a very busy day & I’m hoping I can finish this post without falling asleep on the keyboard.

I’m so pleased that I managed to make something for the PaperArtsy challenge this week, the wonderful Ellen Vargo was back as guest designer & as I’ve said before, I LOVE her art. Ellen has designed a fantastic collection of stamps for PaperArtsy & I hope to get a set soon. I really had no clue how I would make an abstract pattern with the PA stamps I have, but I knew I wanted to make a master board similar to the one in Ellen’s third post, so I just started playing.

Firstly, I stamped the ornamental flower pot from the new Lynne Perella set LP028 with black Archival.


Out came the brayer & the new limited edition Lin Brown Fresco paints.


Then I got stuck, until I realised this stamp from the E Lin Brown set 04 would work.


I had no collage papers so I used strips of washi tape & added assorted doodling with black paint & a white pen.


Because I wasn’t sure what I was doing I’d only used half an A4 sheet of card for my base. I got three ATC sized pieces & four smaller pieces when I cut it down.


Stamped some quotes onto white card for the ATCs.


Made a piece of wall art with the rest.


In the end, I think this worked out, I like the results. Thanks to Ellen for the inspiration & thanks to you for visiting. See you next time.
