Hi Bee Arty Lovelies!
I'm playing along with the March creative challenge which is a fabulous moodboard this month. We would love for you to join in with this challenge and be in the running to win a Bee Arty store voucher. You have until March 31 and you need to upload your challenge to the appropriate album in the facebook group.
I'm using a cotton watercolour page in my DWM art journal. I start by applying Colour Mica Powder in Polar, Royalty and Rose Petal to my page using a painting with plastic technique. You can either mix the mica powders with water in a paint palate or I have mixed the mica with gum arabic and created my own pan paint set.
Next I've added some stencilling using the Scripted stencil (from the Love and Grace collection) and Just Blue Colour Paste. This Colour paste was starting to go a bit thick so I carefully mixed some Isopropyl alcohol with it to thin it down - just add a few drops at a time and mix until blended and the consistency you like.
Then I added some stamping using the "All Class" stamp set from the Trendsetter collection.
I created my own floral embellishments by stamping flowers from the Floral Delights II stamp set onto white cardstock.
I then painted the flowers using the Colour Mica Powder in Polar, Royalty and Rose Petal to coordinate with the moodboard. Next I fussy cut the flowers to use on my page.
Here is my finished page. I used a picture I found on Pinterest to add to the focal point.
I've added some diecuts using the String leaves metal dies and sweet floral metal die and white cardstock.
You can see that I strategically placed the background stamping in the areas I intended to embellish.
I used a palate knife to add some Snow White Colour Paste to the center of each flower for sparkle.
Thanks so much for stopping by
