Young AF

Sorry... you just accidentally read profanity in abbreviated form.

This was made on the depths of no mojo.  I totally was like, "I'm going to take this paper and add every medium I have within reach to it..."

  • Base was just a scrap of textured cardstock used to "capture" some excess modeling paste a couple months ago. Teresa Collins modeling paste through Tim's Plus stencil. (Fun fact: the original cardstock was blue.  Who knew?!)
  • Peeled Paint Distress Paint
  • Walnut Stain Distress Crayon
  • Iced Spruce Distress Stain
  • Fiskars text stamp inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black
  • Black Liquitex gesso added as a border using an old key card, and also added to edges
  • While gesso still wet, I added some Antique Silver Frantage by Stampendous and heated it
  • Baby wipe used to clear off some of the plusses
  • Tim's found relative paper doll man sanded and added.  Autumn had scraped some of her relatives recently and I took this page from her book.
  • Tim's Grungeboard letters from a decade ago painted with black Liquitex gesso and sanded to reveal the texture
  • Trifecta dies by Seth Apter cut from the packaging from a Tim Holtz stencil
I bet I missed a supply or two in there-- I really went to town on this sheet.
