Liminal

One of the main ways that I enjoyed working, on my Fine Art degree course, was the world of the liminal, a subject barely seen, glanced out of the corner of your eye.

I bought a lovely winter scene embossing folder over the weekend and had a practice with it. You can see the trial results on my Cardmaking tab above. Some worked better than others.

At the other end of the scale, a more ‘in your face’ approach. Having bought a very cheap set of watercolour brushes from Lidl a while ago, I stamped an image onto paper and attempted colouring it it. I don't like it. Colouring in, in full, is not my way of doing things at all, just doesn't rock my boat:

This is also a red rubber unmounted stamp, found it quite difficult to work with as I usually use clear stamps.

  1. I've looked and I think they're lovely. I have to admit, I like the coloured one as well as the outline one. They have a different 'feel' to each other but I think they both work.

  2. They often use a wash to in fill stamps like this. If you look at create and craft channel or YouTube you'll see examples. Less is more sometimes although I do like the gold colours too.
