DT Challenge

The Paper Imagery Designs design team challenge for September was to use these cool silver fish in some sort of art piece. I did an altered book spread. You can find more silver fish art from the PID dt on the PID blog here.

PID Collage sheets – 138, 157, 165, 230
Zia’s Hot Jewel watercolor sprays
Coral and Seaweed stamps – Stamp Zia
Stazon ink
Versamark ink
Embossing powders

I began by sponging some white gesso on the pages in a random manor and let that dry. Next I sprayed them with the Hot Jewels, dabbed at the colors with a wadded up piece of plastic wrap and let it dry. Stamped the coral with Versamark ink and embossed it with bright embossing powders (unknown). Stamped the seaweed with Stazon ink and colored with a metallic colored pencil. The fish are colored with Stazon ink. The words are computer generated but inspired by a stamp from Quietfire Design that says "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".

If you click on the pictures, they will come up larger.
