The Written Word


Created for Mixed Media Monday. The background is canvas paper coloured with distress inks in Vintage Photo & Peeled Paint, spritzed with water, then heat dried. This was then stamped with a pen nib background in StazOn ink (Timber Brown). The collage image was applied, then the border added which was also coloured with distress ink. I stamped the text onto card coloured with matching ink, then painted 3 German Scrap pen nibs with brown and expresso acrylic paint. I finished the piece by adding the staples randomly around the border.
