This month Michelle's crusade is all about Strip Ease....not Strip Tease which probably would not be a good idea for me!
Last month I didn't finish my piece for the crusade so this month I decided not to wait until the last minute. I got busy today and began with....
A 12" x 12" piece of red rosin paper. I did some fake writing with my dip pen and ink. Then added some stenciling with gesso and a sponge.
Next came some torn strips of paper.
A couple more pieces going across, and another stencil on the right side.
I finished up with a little sanding, a very light coat of cream paint over the strips to tone them down a bit, and added some black to give it a little punch. And there you have my little Strip Ease!
