Life Is What You Make It

Hi there! We have Lisa Taggart here on the blog today with an incredible mixed media piece featuring lots of our stamps and stencils, including our NEW Street Dance Boys…

Gosh I had a lot of fun with this one! I’m very privileged and excited to be featuring some more of the October 2018 release stamps and stencils! I’ve also included some of our old favourites just to mix it up a bit!

Today I’ve gone for a mixed media edgy urban feel. It combines acrylic paint and ink.

Here are the products:

The steps:

I cut this in half and used the other bit for another project. I also added some blue paint to the bottom.

The main images including the sentiment were stamped using Versafine onyx black. I tried to line up the figures with the lines of the background stamp.

I also dripped some magenta paint from the top to grunge it up a bit!

After adding the splatters I added extra interest to the edges by randomly stamping parts of the elemental stamp and then hand drew some scribbly lines to create a border.
