Hello You by Ree Peace

Happy New Year everyone from Tassie!!

What a great start I have made to this year, playing with paper and colour everyday and making plenty of mess too!

This LO is so soft and subtle, I hope you get the same feel for it through the lens and on screen as others have in person, however I did manage to cover most of the mixed media up somehow!

This is my precious Niece back at Easter time and she had just woken from siesta so happy and content with a fresh surprised look...I fell a little harder for her at that moment!



After having a clean up and sort out I found it extremely easy to grab colour co-ordinating pieces up ready to create with. This is one of my favourite things to do before creating as it reminds me of what I have while also giving me choice at the table in the here and now.


This is my first time playing with this range of 7 Dot Studio and it is so yummy...be prepared to see how easy it is to match colours from different Colour Blast ranges!

First prepping the page with Heavy Gesso in White , this stuff is fabulous! So smooth to work with, with great coverage...using a sponge in a 'cross hatching' style created a cool texture and subtle layers. 
Again with Gesso and a titch of Peacock Colour Shimmer Dust (a titch is all that is needed) I developed the perfect 'green/blue' to match the chevron of the printed paper.



Again I used a sponge to apply the coloured Gesso through a stencil.



Using the Colour Shimmer Spray a little differently, I poured Tangereen Dream into a dish and 'stamped' circles onto the dry Gesso, building the layers.


And with the photo added backed with white tissue, gauze, and washi with a balance of chipboard words, word stickers (from the 7 Dots range) and some flowers you have a very subtle and soft mixed media LO fit for a teeny tiny baby =)



Thanks for stopping by! Looking forward to being inspired, and inspiring, for this fresh year that is 2017!

Stay safe,
Ree x
