Mark Making Using Tracy Scott Paper Artsy Stamps

The topic of the fortnight over at Paper Artsy is mark making.  The examples of different types of mark making are fabulous. 

I have recently bought the new Tracy Scott stamps and Prima watercolours and so set about having a play with them.  I decided to add some mark making to my play!

I started off by creating a layered paint background so that I could practice some of the techniques that I learnt.

I then stamped the largest stamp in Tracy's sets and filled the blank space in using the others, including adding a border.

Next, I started to colour and shade the images using Prima watercolours. 

Once this was dry I set to work with various paint pens to create my 'marks' - this includied line drawing, squiggles and writing.

I really enjoyed this so I decided to play some more!

This time I stamped the mages in Archival ink.  Once heat set I randomly painted around them in watercolour and painted inside the images.

Once this was dry I took out my paint markers and doodles and made marks around the page. 

A very simple page but I like the burst of colour and the way some of the marks make the images stand out more.

So..... this is my submission for marking!  Thanks for looking.....
