Nature of the Beast

     Hello and welcome back Stampers! It felt so good to finally create this jungle scene in my art journal, as the idea started a few months ago, as I was going through my Red Rubber Designs Stamps!  I took out Tiger Face, Take Pride, Fern Sprig, and Fern Frond, setting them aside, until I was able to come up with this page, made with some recycled bits and pieces.


     Like this Converse shoe tag, that I cut along the star, inking and spraying it.


      I also recycled the brown netting from some fruit, shown below with stamped elephants from the Take Pride Stamp.


          Cheesecloth on the background gives lots of texture, as well as making great moss, dyed with Magicals and sprays. I also used twine along the top and right, covering it with gesso, and painting with sprays. The leaves coming from it were embossed onto clear transparency paper with the Fern Sprig Cling Mounted Stamp, using Ranger's Topiary EP.


     The wood was made with Ranger's Woodgrain Stencil, some white gesso, and sprays. Then I embossed the Thickers that spell NATURE with Distress EP Shabby Shutters. Since my Thickers were black, it didn't come out as bright as I wanted, so I went over it with some paint. The rest of my title was made from chipboard, covered with gesso, colored with sprays, and stamped with the Tiger Face Cling Mounted Stamp.


     Thanks for looking, and get your Animal Cling Mounted Rubber Stamps at Red Rubber Designs!
