SaWo – bandage it!

Interestingly enough, the Saturday’s Workout challenge was to use bandages/muslin/cheesecloth to stamp/create backgrounds with… I think! Anyway, whilst clearing out one of the kitchen drawers and packing this afternoon, I came across a sticky bandage we have (for the dogs) and cut a piece off to make a background and use as a stamp.

I painted the top half of the page with gesso and tried stamping into it with the bandage – not terribly successful; I probably used too little gesso. Then I painted gesso onto the bandage and stamped with it – better! I used a couple of distress inks for colour and stamped my images with black Stazon.


I used Ria’s Funky Houses and Funny People stamps and doodled to complement them… This makes me think of DH, DD and me going from one house to the new one!! 🙂

Each day we get a little closer and more boxes packed!
