Hello friends....today I would like to share a project made for PaperArtsy challenge, Fragile papers...it’s pretty funny how I started with this...one night I bring out my “new” (it’s quite old, but still not used) fish stamp (MN101) and tried to make something with it...unsuccessful, no right mojo....next morning full moon woke me around 3:00 and after morning ritual I went to visit blogland...I saw PaperArtsy new post...photo inspiration for Fragile papers challenge works very well and I immediately knew how to use beautiful fish stamp....I started with my little experiment....
...ko se je osnova sušila, sem vzela kos kartona in ga prekrila s stranjo iz starega slovarja. S štampiljko sem naredila odtis na "tissue" papir, ki sem ga obarvala s kavo. Karton sem prekrila z eno plastjo vročega voska, dodala odtis in prekrila še z eno plastjo vročega voska. Ko se je vse skupaj ohladilo, sem karton narezala na tri kose, postarala robove in dodala malo rdeče barve....
...nato nazaj k osnovi...Gesso se je že posušil, zato sem koščke jajčne lupine obrobila s svinčnikom. Dodala sem "tissue" papir, sukanec, povoj in "ribje dele". Za konec sem naredila še okvir....Kako se vam zdi?
...First I used white Gesso and cover the cardstock. While Gesso was still wet I sprinkled some white embossing powder and dried with heat gun. I still wasn't happy with texture, so I crumbled egg shell and glue it with Mod Podge. I coated everything with white Gesso, again and let dry....
...in between I took a piece of cardboard and cover it with old dictionary page. I use my beautiful fish stamp and stamped on coffee dyed tissue paper. I covered cardboard with hot wax, added tissue paper and covered with another layer of hot wax. When everything was cold, I cut the piece in three parts, distressed the edges and added some red splatters....
....Then back to my base...Gesso was dry and I rounded egg shell pieces with pencil. I added tissue paper (coffee dyed), bandage, thread and "fish pieces" on the top. For final touch I cut some wood and made a frame..... What you think?
I am sure that inspiration for this piece also came from great tutorial here.
Hvala za obisk!
Thank you for visiting!
Kako se mi zdi? Čisto odbito in nekaj najbolj "hudega", kar sem videla zadnje čase. Ampak tole z jajčno lupino,.... je pa bilo kaj?
Simply beautiful! Love the waxy finish on your stunning fish!
Ana, I think it is so very beautiful,- love the eggshells you circled with pensil, and the wax gives a beautiful glow, and fragile feeling to the fish stamp !
This is a sublime creation and so inspirational.
Clever use of the fish stamp and I absolutely love your use of the broken egg shells. Maybe I will try this idea because the texture is so beautiful, fragile but also great strength.
It is wonderful to read that the PaperArtsy Fragile Papers theme inspired you.
Wow Ana! Sometimes simple products that we have in the house after the special treatment they have a wonderful effect! Beautiful and unique work!
Greetings from Poland :)
I love your artwork so much!
This is absolutely beautiful. The wax is a wonderful addition. Very pretty, Ana!
EXCELLENT piece Ana!
Res zanimivo, kaj ti vse ne uporabis na svojih izdelkih. Sem nadoknadila zamujeno in si pogledala kaj vse si nam pokazala v preteklih dneh. Zelo lepo in cestitke tudi za pridruzitev k novemu ustvarjalnemu timu. Se ze veselim tvojih objav. Vse dobro v novem letu.
This is full moon mojo at its very best! Your fish made me think of an ancient fossil and I am fascinated by the sprinkles--eggshells no less. Oh the tedium of pasting them down but so worth it! I also appreciate the lovely finish that wax provides. A wonderful piece (now get some sleep)!
It's beautiful, Ana!
Love the "open space" around the focal point. Great design and texture!
Noro, noro, komaj ti sledim ;)
Nemci bi rekli, da razumejo samo Bahnhof ;)
Samo rezultat je fantastičen.
Oooo, kakšen učinek dajo jajčne lupine. Zgledajo mi kot drobni kristalčki. Res noro, da si jih šla obrobit s svinčnikom. Krasen efekt. Celotna voščilnica je prav posebna in enkratna!
CAS perfection, love how you have used the fish stamp and added egg shells for texture, exceptional card :-)
Oh Ana, eggshells and pencils and you produce this! No surprise, adore this piece, gorgeous composition and yes I love the space..Ruth x
WOW, this is stunning. I can't believe you used egg shells and made them look extraordinary. Great design cutting your fish in three panels
This is gorgeous Ana, it looks so simple and yet it has an amazing quality to it that pulls me in and makes me want to see and know more.
Happy new year to you and yours.
hugs Brenda xx
Your middle of the night fish turned out brilliantly!
What a great use of those eggshells too.
Thank you for sharing your creative process.
Beautiful composition - love the texture from the eggshell and that fabulous fish stamp.
This is amazing a very unique piece of art.
Magnificent, Ana - that fish has never looked more beautiful. I love your eggshell texture and the whole piece works so well. Lovely to have you playing along at PaperArtsy!
Ohhhhh!!!! I adore it Anina! Love the eggshell, and adding the tissue with wax was a stroke of genius! Really nice to cut the fist into 3 parts too, the whole project looks FABULOUS!!
Wow, what a beautiful piece of art - I love your fish stamp and the bubbly background.
What a lovely piece, Ana. I adore how you used the fish. This is exquisite and innovative creating: I so love it! xxx
