Mission Collage: Part Three

These are the next three steps of Mission Collage:

1. Smudge: Wet your fingers and smudge any of the chalk, pastel, crayon, charcoal on your project.

2. Magazine: Attach a page or piece of a page of magazine to your collage and then use a damp cloth or baby wipe to remove areas of ink from the magazine you put on your collage. Cheap magazine pages work the best. Scrub a dub dub!

3. Stamp: Anywhere, anykind, any amount. Caution: be careful about what kind of ink you choose to stamp with...there may be wet areas again on the project before we're finished!

Mmmm. I have got an idea of where I'm going with this, but I will confess that I'm really not sure about the magazine page! I chose to use a page from the Waitrose magazine as it had a list which looked quite interesting, but when I attached it the writing was a bit intrusive (it was food related stuff) so I rubbed it off. Of course, I had used gel medium to attach the page, so you can see the reversed text from the other side of the page, which I quite like! But then I used some Distress Ink to take the colour down from the pure white, and it really absorbed into the paper in some places, but not evenly. Luckily there are more steps to do, so I will make it better! The stamps are from Aud Design.
More tomorrow, it will be the penultimate stage!

J'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère générale de ce collage, les fondus qui s'entremêlent puis sont rompus par les Doodlings. Merci pour vos explications très claires.

I'm following this creation with great interest - fab so far. You're really enjoying this, and it shows. I love the Aud swirls in all their sizes on this - beautifully thought through.
