Here's my journal spread for the GPP Street Team's February challenge. Michelle Ward challenged us to make a journal spread using X and O stencils, stamps, etc. It's a monthly challenge to motivate us to learn more about working with paint, which I surely can use. I used foam stamps and bubble wrap for my letters but I notice that the kissy lips are somewhat O-shaped as well. I started with black gesso, then layered on some metallic gold paint which doesn't show up in the scan. Some of the stamping into wet paint doesn't show up well either. After stamping, I splattered on pearl white and dark red acrylics and kinda like the way the red looks like blood. Fun! Thanks, Michelle, for the challenge every month. Now, I can go check out every one else's spreads. More fun!

Debra - I loved being able to click on the image to see it larger. So much great grungey paint here. I liked your observation that the puckered lips are O's *grin* Thanks for sharing with the team!

Really like the black and red with the splashy white. Cool!

The lips are great! I have that stamp but never thought to use it. And yes, it does form the letter "O".
