Creative Jump Start #8

If you're taking
advantage of Nathalie Kalbach's Creative Jump Start Summit 2013, you are familiar with the sponsor spots that show up every few days. Sad to say, I haven't purchased any product from Jump Starter #8, Darkroom Door. Their rubber stamps look amazing! Here's the page I created for them...

I blended three
acrylics for the background... Red Ochre, Grey and Titanium White spritzed with a little water.

Once I got started,
I couldn't stop piling on the layers. I pulled out my whole stack of stencils and began... first with the Titanium White acrylic, a brush and Studio Calico's Bubbles. Second, soft gel medium and Crafter's Workshop Punchinella. 

Next, CW Chevron
 Arrows spraying with Lindy's Stamp Gang  Rudolph's Nose Red Starburst... CW Ledger stencil, a sponge brush and cheap black craft paint. Added some drops of Black Marble Dylusions ink and finished off with Jet Black Archival ink and one of the Stampers Anonymous Bitty Grunge stamps.

Grabbing my box of
scraps, I cut a few banners and glued all the pieces together.

Lots of texture...
and as Donna Downey says... Happy Place!!!

Having never created backgrounds like this, I am completely amazed by the depth and detail you are able to achieve with layers of mediums and stencils! Wow! So super gorgeous!
