Weird Science...Beautiful Mind

Hello, Kay Molyneux here. I'm so pleased to share this canvas board using the Weird Science Series of stamps. It started out as a part completed project that's been in my craft room for ages. It was going to be a portrait meadow scene, the grasses had been applied using texture paste and paper shapes but I had a brain wave - turn it to landscape and paint it all over with white Gee-Sso-Good gesso mixed with a little black.

To add some colour, English Cottage Artist's Acrylic Paint Burning Bonfire was mixed with the new Slap-It-On Gloss giving a lovely orange glaze and the same was done with Cinderella both were painted as shown and also used to give some paint splatters.

The Periodic Table of Elements and images from A5 Light and Sound Borders and A5 Chemistry Lab sets were stamped with StazOn on to tissue paper, torn out and applied using Slap-It-On Matt.

The butterflies were made by stamping the Calculus with white Gee-Sso-Good gesso onto IndigoBlu Black Stamping Card then over stamping with the butterfly images using FlitterGlu and applying Copper Kettle Mega Flakes.

The test tubes from Chemistry Lab were stamped onto acetate and coloured from behind and mini glass bottles were filled with beads, paint and Mega Flakes and labelled from the Periodic Table of Elements stamp applied with Slap-It-On Matt.

Sentiments from the Chemistry Lab and A5 Beautiful Mind sets were stamped onto kraft card and cut out and some beakers from Chemistry Lab were stamped onto shrink plastic, these were added to the canvas. These were used to frame the little girl studying from the A6 Lost Family Mixed Media Paper Pack.

I do hope this has inspired you to play with the fabulous Weird Science Series stamps!

Until next time,
Kay M
