Unicycle Dream

This piece has been created for Viva Las Vegas Stamps Monthly Challenge for April.

The challenge as usual involves using at least one VLV stamp and to be inspired by the prompts and image given. This month they prompts were: words like SPRING! flowers, doodles, buds, whimsical, patterns, checkerboard, stars, wings, Mary Vogel Lozinak, banners, green, teal, white, black.

I first gessoed a piece of card and then thought there was too much gesso on the card and so placed another piece of card on top to remove some. This left an interesting speckled effect which I really liked and so decided to use this. I applying watercolour which has a shimmery mica type effect, knowing that the gesso would create a resist. The colours are very subtle but just as I wanted.
I have used images and text from Mary Vogel Lozinak Plate 1383 and Writing Circles Background, which I turned into flowers. All these were stamped on tissue and then stuck onto the image with matt medium.
