Soooooooooo excited to be Guest designer For March at Stampotique Designer Challenge

Well what an absolute thrill (understatement) to be invited to be guest designer for March at stampotique designers challenge. I love this blog challenge and the one I play along with the most so this is a dream for me.
I start this month with the challenge
one of my favourite challenge theme's and I have started this GD month for Stampotique with a canvas full of textures. I just love playing with stencils,texture paste and paint.
 I used a 10" x 5" x 1.5" canvas, covered it in ripped up 7GypsiesLillie papers then smeared Paperartsy fresco finish paints over it randomly with a credit card. On top of that stenciling with paste through 3 different stencils 2 of them I then painted when dried. Main stamped image is "Queen of Life" which I have stamped onto gesso covered dictionary paper and partially coloured with the same paints. "Magical Woman" I took 2 words from the "Word Collage" Stamp.
I have splashed white acrylic paint randomly, added ripped washi tape a bit of painted lace trim and randomly stamped with "Spiritual Collage". the word "Life" I have cut from gesso covered dictionary paper using Tim's Tall Letters die and then doodled around the edges with a fine liner pen.
As this was a deep canvas the sides were also painted and stamped with "Spiritual Collage stamp"
I hope you like my first piece for March and hope that you will join in with this weeks challenge and show us your "Textures" at stampotique designers challenge
thanks for visiting

  1. What a great background you have created Amanda! Very textured! Love it

  2. I was thrilled when I saw the announcement that you would be Stampotique's Guest Designer this month because I knew that you would take my texture challenge and run away with it! And, my friend, you did not disappoint. I can pretty much "feel" all the texture right on my computer monitor. Layers and layers of yummy goodness. I love the combination of elements you have used here, and love your "wrap around" art, too! So glad you're here to inspire even the Design Team members!

  3. Fabulous canvas Amanda, love the layers of colour and texture.
