SEPT 12-17: vintage// SCAVENGER : purple: postage stamps, pale yellow stencilled DI (through sequin waste), something round (sequin waste), something postal related postage stamps, something with handwriting on it: an envelope , some stamping,a bingo card, scrapbook paper, a piece from your scrap bin: the hand written envelope , white paint or gesso. I managed the vintage part in so far as the stamps all came from my dad's house and the envelope goes back to our time in Abu Dhabi....we left there in 1978 but dad left in 1975!
The British stamps are all pre decimalisation!
I wanted rippled sand so I used a chocolate baroque stamp with antique linen distress ink and clear embossing powder. I then used more of the same ink to colour the paper. For the Seaglass I resorted to another stamp from the same set because my printer was not talking to my iPad. Using hydrangea big and juicy inkpad i almost got what I wanted. Another stamp using black ink of a parent and child searching on the sea shore at low tide shows one of my favourite pastimes.
