News Print


Created for Art Adventures. I started with printed pages, sprayed with colour wash inks, these were torn and glued onto each other. Next I applied some gesso with a sponge, and when dry added more sprays in Aqua and Buttercup. The image is a transparency. Embellishments were sprayed with the same inks to coordinate, and the whole piece edge with StazOn Teal ink.

Lovely work Rachel - the newsprint is so effective as a subtle background like that. Thank you for joining in.

Very soft, subtle colours and I love the way the newsprint just peeps through the ink and gesso. Thanks for taking part in our challenge.
