I don’t know why I named this ‘Poisoned Apple”- it’s just the first thing to come to my mind. I just couldn’t bring myself to muck it up with words or any other embellishment-so it stands as is.
For the background I used some of my inked up paper from previous works and cut it up and used gel medium to adhere it to my pages. I just love those big rolls of craft paper- they are perfect to work on and when you’re done, you cut out the cool stuff and throw the rest away!
After I adhered the background- I cut out pieces from a shopping bag from Donna Downey’s with old timey news print on it and stuck in a couple of places and spread some gesso around it. I also used some on both sides of the inclusion.
The ink splatters are probably one of my favorite parts to this page-I used Liquitex Acrylic Ink there.
The apple shapes are a foam stamp that I spread some paint on- and then I finished by using the stamps my son carved for me.
