Hey, Hey! Welcome to another month of challenges! I was so excited to tackle this one, I am a neutral girl through and through and I struggle with ‘pop’s of colour. So I knew that this one was going to be FUN!
I scoured my stash to find some foliage to compliment the mood board. Dusty attic have an epic range of leaves & foliage so I’m sure you will find some to suit you. As always I lay out my elements and try to visualise where the layout will go.
After applying some water colour to the background with Sprays I used a wipe to remove the colour from the paste and leave it in the cracks. I added some definition with a water colour pencil and then spritzed it to soften the edges.
I did have to wait for this one to dry overnight… Wink. Once that was done I tried something a little different… I used washi tape to attach my fabric to the layout. Like with my other project this month I dipped into my old scrapbooking stash and pulled out a few forgotten gems.
Next I covered my Broken Bits with white gesso and my title ‘Believe’. I applied some cappuccino paint to the foliage and rubbed a little gold wax on the tips to add a bit of a highlight.
I stuck down my foliage and decided I wanted to highlight it a touch. I added some glitter with glossy accents to the berries on the branch.
I added some flowers, cabochons and art stones to finish off along with another Scrappers favourite… Enamel dots. It was great to get some extra uses for what I used to just use on a traditional page in my mixed media.
I used my distress inkpad to add some highlights to my flowers. I am a super messy scrapper and I lightly rubbed the pad direct to the flower. I like that it is irregular and I never know how it will turn out.
