Art journal- Wendi Vecchi style





This journal won a Curtain call color challenge- thanks!!

When I first seen this new Simon says stamps and show challenge I thought " who in the Earth is this Wendi Vecchi?" Sorry to say- never heard about her and I don't own her stamps (maybe for the New year present- it's here in 3 weeks and DH- do you hear me? NO, he doesn't, he doesn't read my blog and he is so out of art person.. )I'l buy them myself.. I need to say that from this moment on Iam her real admirer
But as a real challenge frick I decided I can do her style with whatever products I have - ever if these are mostly Tim's babies. So I grabbed these distress inks, Wendy style colors and did this art journal cover that probably will move me to compete one entire journal I never did...
And as it's an art piece- no patterned paper used here, but pure background techniques of stamping white on white, heat embossing, resist inking, stamping all over with some brown inks and then decorating it with this perfectly fitted here Tando creative corner chipboard as a starting point.
I tried new for me panting technique- first I added some clear crackle paint- but only here and there, not all over it. When it was dry I added some distrress Forest moss ink and the crackled places used as a resist and stayed uninked, but then I added another clear crackle layer- and lucky me- it brought some light green paint over the resist places- the result looks great and a bit new..I am sure this techniques was done anywhere on the web- but I as for me- it's mine new technique I invented and I am going to do a small tutorial about it later.
I inked 2 7 Gipsies pieces, used distress glitter stickles for Tim's grungeboard letters, added some wood and metal alphas, some metal pieces and my own stamped polymer clay piece covered with Pearl ex powder.
As a final touch I added some ribbons, lace, twine, metal charm and stamped " Created by.. me" chipboard tag on the wire
And now I needed this Wendi style flower- die cuts were inked, dot stamped , adhered and covers with 3D glossy accents for this porceline look all over and I just love the final result
And as for a challenges:
