I'm finally out of school and finished with VBS. The rest of the summer is mine to do whatever I want. I spotted the latest Street Team crusade and knew I wanted to try it. I've always liked the magic of rubbings, and Michelle's suggestion to add paint resist into the mix looked like great fun.
I grabbed the first thing that looked like it might work that was sitting near my worktable. It's a rubbing plate for kids that I got at a yard sale.The painted paper that I cut up to use was painted by my four-year-old granddaughter Madelyn yesterday. I like to use her artwork in my journal every chance I get.
I rubbed over the plate directly into my journal since the paper is thin. I used a gold crayon.
I used acrylic paint over the rubbing.I liked the blue paint over the gold better than the red. The marker is one of a set that my granddaughter Madelyn picked for her treat at the Everything's a Dollar store. It has roller rubber stamps at one end. She likes crafty things.
The collage bits on the finished page all came from the newspaper that Madelyn and I were painting on. I seem to be adding chunky bits to my journal lately. I'm sure it will make it harder to work on the remaining pages.
