You Are Here

hello everyone.
It's Leanne back with another crazy installment...
this time I didn't really know where to start .. No Surprises there..
so I started with stamping some of my background stamps onto tissue paper with Stazon Ink.
I mean we can never have too much collage paper can we.....

so then I got out my art journal and collaged up a background..
still no clue where it was going... added some crackle and some masking tape for texture.. 

and then i added some colour paint and removed some through a stencil. all the time building up layers. Lisa Oxley inspired 
and then i thought.. this is grungy so I would add some Banksy..
of course..
so I stamped the Banksy: Mom Prepareing Anarchist stamp onto a piece of Pianola roll.
I liked the words.

 stuck all of it down. added some more paint the same way as before..
and then I thought if I'm going Banksy I need some Brick wall,
so I used the Row of Scribble Square.. because they are Brickish.. 
and embossed it with some chunky Lindy's gang embossing powder.,
and then it wasn't quite bricky enough.. so I stamped the same stamp with 2 different distress oxide colours and then spritz some water..

 and to Finish it all of I found a title and Stamp and Embossed it white..
outlined the words with Stabilo All Pencil (Black) and then activated it and just let it pool around the embossing..
finished off by outlining it all with stabilo and activating it to give it some grunge.

and this is the result..

"You are Here"
 Do I like it?
the jury is still out. But what I really LOVED was the Process.
the process is what gives me STRENGTH 
(Cue this months Challenge..... #april20)
