WOW! I cannot believe another two weeks has passed since our last challenge. Today Carolyn Dube and I are back for Take 4 in our Artsy Fartsy Friendly Fun Challenge. If you haven't seen our other challenges and what Artsy Fartsy is all about you can see check out our first post HERE and then click on the side bar labels to see the other challenges.
Today's challenge was to use:
The 3 R's....
Where to start....well not a hard question since all I want to do is use my Gelli Plate right now! I started with the print I made below. I had diecut some fish for a project I was working on and the waste was very interesting to me so I used it as a stencil. The print was a weird size (8" x 8") on a scrap of left over watercolor paper I had torn around the edges. I mounted it on a black piece of cardstock.
Next I pulled out my cherished box of rub-on's. Use them!!!! No more hoarding to another day! These are so old I don't want to tell you. I cut a wave line and rubbed them on!!
Next, I didn't like the black look so I rubbed some Faber Castell Gelato on with my finger--bettter. In the end I rubbed off some of the rub-on on the wave part to make the line a little straighter--I didn't like the wave.
Rubber stamps...I decided as long as I was using old products I would pull out some VERY old rubber stamp letters. SO funny, because they were so old that the rubber kept falling off the wood block--time to re-glue them on!
Why not use some old foam stamps too!
and some more rub-on's! ANCIENT!!! but I still love them!
what's left??? Ribbon! I used this ribbon in our first Artsy Fartsy. I made it with the Gelli Plate. Perfect way to get rid of all that old yucky ribbon and make it new and funky!! I also used a Sakura Metallic pen to outline my letters. The inspiration for the wording I wrote was from the fish...just a little reminder to myself!
I hope you enjoyed my project for this challenge.
Now it is time to go see what Carolyn did with her supplies!!!
