Photograph Finder's Observations

Just a quick (but picture heavy) share today as I am rather busy.
I recently bought the lovely Sizzix camera die and created a panel yesterday, playing with variation and colours.


I used various sheets of Kraft Core, sanded it and glued it to a prepared background I had made with a corrugated card panel, white Gesso and DecoArt Americana acrylic colours.




I also used chit chat stickers, remnant rub ons and washi tape to add some texture.


The acrylic colours where applied to the gesso-ed surface using a brayer, which creates these vibrant dots and textures.


I also blended the shapes in by outlining the camera shapes with a Distress marker "black soot" and smudging the colour around with some DecoArt Decou-page on my finger.




I just love the texture of the Kraft Core!



I hope you like my panel! Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!





Hugs,
Claudia x

I enter this project to:

 Simon's actual Monday Challenge "D is for Distress" (sanded die cuts, Distress marker for shading)

  2. I really like this color study and how the background ties everything together. I am amazed by that background. It looks like a piece of wood that has been painted multiple times ... layer upon layer of color. And then it was left outside for time to do its marvelous work of distressing the piece. That brayering application of the paint is awesome! I love the colors that you used too. You gave a Vintage-feeling piece life with those colors. Great shading around the colored cameras. Fun panel! -- Mary Elizabeth

  20. Der Hintergrund sieht mal wieder mühelos dahin geschlonzt aus. Das ist die wahre Pracht!! Wie du das immer hin bekommst, ist mir echt ein Rätsel (:o) Und überhaupt....ich werde Stanzen demnächst aus einem anderen Blickwinkel betrachten müssen. Sehr gelungen!

  21. Gorgeous project! The textured background is wonderful and I love those three cameras. Great idea to die cut them from different kraft core papers and piece them back together. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  24. Hier muss ich auch noch hin... Dieses Kunstwerk kann nicht unkommentiert bleiben (na ja, es gab ja schon eine Reihe an Komplimenten, ich bin mal wieder etwas im Verzug). Ich habe mir gleich mal wieder die Bilder vergrößert. Deine, darf ich das sagen?, fast schon schäbigen Hintergründe sehen aus, als hätten sie Jahrhunderte auf dem Buckel. Super schön!
    Tschüsschen, bis bald!
