Tracy Scott {by Nikki Acton} with Tracy Scott stamps


I’m sharing a mission for our designer focus matter – that includes Tracy Scott. The previous couple of years I’ve loved just a few of Tracy’s workshops and have embraced her normally vibrant designs. However in the present day my objective is to make use of Tracy’s merchandise in a contrasting strategy to her model, a extra grungy model.  I’m not certain I achieved this fairly as a lot as I deliberate and hoped!

In addition to our designer focus matter, we’re additionally focussing on the present theme of texture. The background is filled with bodily texture and I’ve used different strategies to create visible texture on the flowers.

I’ve used one in every of Tracy’s stencils and PaperArtsy Grunge Paste to kind a textured tag. I like this blue / inexperienced combo which has been achieved with each PaperArtsy Fresco End Chalk Acrylics and comparable colors of each Ranger Misery Oxides and Misery Inks.

We’ve got been masking loads of color principle on the weblog not too long ago – I’ve saved my color quite simple – blue and inexperienced being subsequent to one another on the color wheel, it is onerous to go fallacious. I used to be very tempted to usher in a contrasting color – however I resisted!

I began with my tag. It is a massive mdf tag – round 21 x 10.5cm (8.4 x 4.2 inches.) I gave it a really fast cowl of paint utilizing PaperArtsy Fresco End Chalk Acrylic – Concrete (FF63) earlier than utilizing PaperArtsy Stencil by Tracy Scott (PS252) to use PaperArtsy Grunge Paste. I used the clock in two corners after which unfold a bit extra Grunge Paste with my palette knife across the edges and down the center.

The numbers are from PaperArtsy Printed Tissue (PT02) and also you may be capable of see some random stamping within the background too. As soon as all this was dry I added watered down paint in two colors earlier than warmth drying. I used PaperArtsy Fresco End Chalk Acrylic – Inexperienced Patina (FF126) and Double Denim (FF128).

Under is a a detailed up of the painted floor at this level.

To focus on the textured floor, I used a PaperArtsy Sanding Block to focus on the clock. It is a nice function of Grunge Paste!

As well as I took an oil pastel in white to additional spotlight some areas.
