Celebrating masking tape!

Today on 12 Months in View we are celebrating masking tape with an art challenge.

I watched the videos and then worked on this page.  I put the masking tape on in a grid format and cut some circles.

I scraped  4 colours of acrylic paint across the page - 2 shades of green and 2 shades of blue.

I poured out some metallic Distress paint but forgot that it is very thin so an enormous amount rushed out!  I spooned quited a bit of it back in.  I thought it was too thin for what I wanted to do so I mixed some gesso into it which of course made it much paler.  I stamped with it.  I pulled the masking tape off and it took some of the page with it.

I added some of the metallic direct from the bottle with a brush and managed to tip a large dollop of paint onto the page!  I put the masking tape circles I'd peeled off elswhere on the page and stamped the word Spring.

At this point the page was not doing a lot for me. I put a large plastic doily over it and sprayed liime green ink.  I moved the doily slightly and sprayed yellow ink.

I still didn't much like it so I added 3 different types of washi tape.

Then I added some writing.

Thanks for stopping by.
