writing a letter

Hello everyone out there ...
Suzanne here again and I'm sharing one page of a letter I'm writing. Yepp, you got it right, a letter :-D
Even – or especially – in times of e-communication of all sorts I sometimes actually sit down and write a letter ...

In the beginning I stencilled a big clock with the gelli printing plate (acrylic paint bronze) on a sheet of paper. When dry I generously sprayed the page with water, then with a mix of faded jeans refill and water from a  spray bottle, spread it with a wide brush. After this was dry I stamped the images (the clock in the background with distress ink faded jeans, the other images with archival ink), colored some details with watercolor pencils, and glued down the embellishments. The bubble pattern was sponged through the stencil with panpastel white and sprayed with fixative. Finally I applied some acrylic ink iridescent green with a dropper and scribbled around with a black sharpie pen.
That's it :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by. Please don't forget to return tomorrow and any other day to have a look at the projects of the DT members.

Hugs, Suzanne xx
