Let Chaos Prevail!!

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a lovely sunday, following last weeks traumatic weeks a calmness now has entered my life and I have had a lovely relaxing day doing just what I want and of course that includes a little craftyness. I have made an entry into this weeks challenge over at
stampotique designer challenge and the theme for this week is "Using Gesso".
I found a piece of watercolour card that I had previously been playing around with Dylusions spray on in my bit box that I decided to use. I smeared gesso over it in places and created texture in it with bottle tops,credit cards etc (picture doesn't show that to clearly). I then sprayed more dylusions ink onto my craft mat and picked it up with my gesso coloured paper and then just let them run. I stamped the leaves, dylusions stamp, with black gesso and then did some more gesso smearing, I love how the gesso picks up the colour of the dylusions spray. I added some machine stitching around the edges which caught the smeared gesso in it. I then stamped "Hunk" onto dictionary paper ensuring the word Chaos appeared in his head.
Sentiment has been created using Tim Holtz label letters and worn text alphabet stamps to create the word Chaos.
Thanks for stopping by to visit me I really appreciate it and welcome your comments.
See you soon
Love
Amanda X

  6. I love your creative chaos on this card - the gesso gives such a soft muted feel to the Dylusions sprays - gorgeous inky effects! And so cool to incorporate the word chaos into Hunk's forehead. So glad you found some time to play, and I love the results!
