from paintstick to bookmark

Hi Hermine here, I thought it would be great to turn a paintstick into a bookmark so I don't loose this one comparing to my paper ones, so I did, and this is how it turned out.

step 1: sand the paintstick lightly and give it a thin layer of gesso
step 2: stamp the Face Collage 18378 with Stazon Black
step 3: take a stencil (this one is with leaves) and use some moddeling paste to put over the stencil. Leave to dry over night.
step 4: Colour the face with Lyra crayons aqua colour and sponge the rest with 2 colours Distress ink
step 5: stamp Do all things with Love 19545  with Stazon black.
step 6: Make some accents in the leaves with a black pen.

Hope you like it.

Warmly Hermine

Used materials:
Face Collage 18378
