As soon as the art work for Artastic challenge was up,
I felt inspired straight away to get out the paints and stamps and love the dark diamond theme and some of that colour too!
Trying to create looking through a window with moths bumping against it to see Paige in her late night ballet class - just relaxing at the end.
Here are some of the products used to create the background. Gesso, black texture paste (in the tube), Mango Making Memories paint, my favourite 'Purple Onion Stamps' in the diamonds and all the butterflies, and PanPastel - which is fabulous to stamp with especially on a partially wet background - I'm impatient when it comes to drying times! (rolling eyes)
sticking some little fabric triangle pieces at the bottom of each diamond gives the 'window' a little more depth
