This card was made for today's Inspiration Challenge. We went to this cool site AIGA Design Archives. I pulled up a poster on my IPAD, but could not get the same page to pull up on my computer and the IPAD does not give the specifics on the page, but I was able to link to this:
and the inspiration I used is the fourth one in on the second row. It is probably hard to see the connection from my sample because a lot of the elements got covered in the final project. I used the colors from this project as well as co ordinating with this week's color challenge. I also used this week's sketch challenge and the Ways to Use it challenge to use wind, which is present in my choice of image and in the sprays I used on the project.
I started with a magazine page that I adhered to a piece of card stock and then painted with gesso. I dried and sanded this and stamped the Old World Map. I added Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Sahara Sand inks to this. The printing was still apparent at this point. Then I sprayed with Glimmer Mist which sadly caused my ink to run. So I blotted this and dried it and Sprayed it with an Fixative and then sprayed on some Walnut Stain to distress it. I sanded some of this off. By now most of the printing was obscured. I still can't seem to get that quite right.. I stamped the log page from The Open Sea set onto Sahara Sand CS and Sponged on ink. I stamped the sailing vessel and colored it with copic markers and distressed it and added Walnut Spray. I also sprayed a piece of So Saffron DSP with both Walnut Stain and Glimmer Mist. I used Early Expresso and Gold as neutrals in this piece.
I have inky fingers and a very messy desk now, but I had fun! Time to go clean up!
