Yet more catch up...

Page 19.. Describe in five words...

I began by adding torn scrapbook paper to the background and blending in the pieces with neocolours and white acrylic. I added ink to the edges and stamped 1-5 in blue stazon.

On the back I used acrylic paints, neocolours and more stamping.

I then printed the word FIVE in different languages onto Letraset Safmat, stuck these little labels onto the pages and added my descriptive words over the top. I printed them out and coloured them with Inktense pencils and Graphitints and outlined them with a white gelly pen.

I also stamped a large number 5, which was traumatic in itself... i spent forever searching for a foam set of alphabet stamps, thinking there would be numbers with them. Searching was proving futile and involved stamping of feet and growlage.... I emptied a whole cupboard and eventually found them...there were no numbers in the I had to make one from funky foam and cardboard, in the process of cutting it out i managed to cut it in half...was too busy tweeting at the same time.


On the back is more number stamping and my journalling...about why there is no journalling.
