To start with I create a background on a sheet of heavy duty 350gsm white cardstock. I use Colour Mica Powders that I have mixed with Gum Arabic and stored in a pan paint storage tin for easy access. I created a watercolour look background using a painting with plastic technique as well as adding paint splatters. I'm using Cool Mint, Peach Nectar and Stormy weather Colour Mica Powders to coordinate with the Find Paradise Collection papers.
Next I add some stenciling using Cool Mint and Stormy weather Colour Mica Powders mixed with modelling paste and the Crab Art stencil.
I cut the white cardstock down to approx 11"x11" and mat it onto a sheet of Light Forest paper that I have cut a square out of the centre (I do this to conserve paper).
Here is my finished page. I love the soft muted colour tones of this paper range and the mica powders - so pretty!
I have matted the photo with more papers from the Find Paradise Collection.
I created a selection of leaf and flower diecuts using the Leaves of Paradise metal die set and Flower Power die set, using both white cardstock and paper from the Find Paradise Collection.
I added some paper flowers, art stones and words cut from the Relax word paper.
A pineapple paper clip is a fun addition to the page.
