Happy Friday (.....to those that won't be working the weekend like me).
For today's layout I went back to some of the original products.
I started with a pale blue cardstock that faded to white at the edges.
Using white tissue paper I pasted it down with a clear gesso scrunching it as I went. I continued to paint the whole page with the clear gesso to seal it (as at this stage I still wasn't too sure on what I was going to do).
I decided to dab Sapphire Colour Spray using a paint brush then added more with Carribean Colour Spray. Spraying a little water to meld it all together. Then finishing off with splatters of each.
I sprayed Steel Shimmer Spray all over to give the page some sparkle.
With a dry feather brush I went gently over the blue with Heavy White Gesso to give it a bit of a wave effect.
I painted all my chipboard with Heavy White Gesso.
Using a green paint I had I painted the top of my chipboard then using the Heavy White Gesso I painted up from the bottom overlapping.
Once dry I embossed the top with Envy Embossing Powder and the bottom with Snow White Embossing Powder.
I got out my stash of Colour Pastes. Starting with Leather, Envy & Singin' The Blues I put a little of each on my craft mat & added a little water before painting it on my chipboards.
I kept going on all my chipboard bits using Bling, Sienna, Lovely Lilac, Lemon Zing, Tangareen Dream & Rose Petal Colour Pastes.. I also used Bling for some highlights.
Using Bubblegum & Roadbase Colour Sprays I painted my snorkelling gear.
Using Deep Water Shimmer Spray I spray some cheese cloth & dried it off. Then added some splatters around the page.
For my little letters I painted them one at a time with Heavy White Gesso and before it could dry I dipped each one in Deep Water Embossing Powder then heat activating.
Once I stuck all my elements down I painted the edges of my page with White Gesso before watering a little gesso down with water & adding some splatters.
I also added some real shells, some small coloured rocks, sequins and glitter for final touches.
Here's a few closeups.
Thanks for looking.
