Slap It On

It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight we want you to Slap it On.
it's up to you what you slap on - paint, colour, texture,  just have fun.

I decided on another page in my journal, this time using a picture of my Mum as a small child.  My pages were given a coat of gesso before adding ink stains and background stamping.  I've used texture paste which was coloured with DIs when dry and then grounded the pages with smudged crayons before adding the  coloured die cuts and cut apart words.

There's plenty of inspirations from the DT, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx
