Play Day Clown

Here is another small 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch collaged plate called 'Play Day Clown'.  I prepared the plain base copier paper by painting with Dylusions paint and applying Distress Stains direct to paper.  Once happy I then stamped with Archival black ink and a set of Sizzix flower polymer stamps around the egde of the page and used a flower border down the left side.

The flowers were then coloured with a waterbrush and Distress Inks in various colours.  The ink pads were smooshed onto a craft sheet and the colour picked up with the waterbrush before painting in the flowers.  Shading was added with black soot Distress ink and the waterbrush.

Next the digi images and words (ARTchix Studio) were printed out onto inkjet paper and trimmed out before edging and sticking in place. Some imperfect circles were added using rose, pink & black Dylusions paints applied using different diameter lids as the applicators.

Finally the centres of the flowers were gilded with Krylon gold pen and the artwork mounted on a double matt of pink and pale blue patterned paper.

Really enjoyed making this one !
