Don't Be A Face In The Crowd- Lesley

Hey people, Lesley here with an altered plaque for you. And its not Halloween......OR Christmas styley!!

I decided to go bright this time......something i struggle with, i'm normally a dark rusty sort of colour girl!
The board was primes with gesso to begin with. And i started building up layers.

Bits of torn up pages from an old book was first......then a printed napkin torn up.

I dropped watercolours on top and added a bit of water and let it dribble about.

Then i added some stamping. A circle stamp using white ink, and then a face stamp, using black ink.
And then finally, i used an ink pen to doodle little flowers and scribbles.

I painted the mini circles with silver paint and little rub ons of faces on top.
Using wire, i attached the circles to them and then wrapped them around the hand, and glued the arm in place.

I dusted off my Dymo label machine for the wording to finish.

Thanks for reading,
