'Brotherly Love' by Rachel Dutko

Hello everyone!
Today I have a layout documenting the 
typical relationships between siblings!
Strong and steadfast, sometimes prickly, but ultimately timeless!

Here is how I created my page-

I primed my page with White Heavy Gesso then applied
Singin' The Blues Colour Shimmer Cube with plenty of water.
I also added some flicks of colour with my paintbrush.

Once that was dry the next step was to add some stamping and 
Just Blue Colour Paste through a stencil.

While my base page dried it was on to colouring the chipboard pieces.
I coloured the small chains with White Heavy Gesso, and sprayed the other chipboard pieces with Colour Sprays (Coffee and Carribean).

I covered the part of the chipboard I didn't want to spray with Carribean with washi,
and then once the Colour Spray had dried I took off the washi
and then coloured that part with White Heavy Gesso.

The next step for my chipboard was to heat emboss with Leather and Steel
Colour Embossing Powders.

Let's have a closer look at the shimmer of the embossing powder-

The chipboard pieces that I primed with gesso have a real shiny, metallic look from the Colour Embossing Powder, and the pieces that I sprayed first with Colour Spray
have a softer, more organic tone.

I hope I've inspired you to dig out your chipboard
and try some different techniques.

Thanks for looking
