... And now for something completely different! - No classes for day 6 - but lots of information presented in an informative video and some homework in the form of a challenge. We were asked to revisit one of our favorite techniques from the previous classes or to try one which was new to us. Then Tim asked that we give it a twist by using any surface other than the traditional cardstock.
I decided to have a go at the paper mosaic technique onto a grunge board, die cut mannequin shape. I mounted this onto burlap and I tried texture paste through a stencil onto the burlap directly and it worked well. I also tried using Alcohol Inks on plastic scrabble tiles.
Cardstock did feature in my finished layout as I used a small piece of Kraft Resist, with a Stamp & Archival Ink. I then inked this with several colours of Distress Ink.
