This Fills my Heart
Well I must say that this moodboard had me challenged! While I loved the colours they didnt fit with the image… So when I rummaged through my stash I either had the perfect paper… Or the perfect Pic… Not both!! In the end I think that it came off ok.. Thanks to Dusty Attic for really pushing me out of my comfort zone this time.
So with any great project I began with colouring my embellishments. I really had to work out which ones deserved prominence in this layout. I added extra dimension to the pale colour I used by adding a layer of Dusty Attic Crackle Varnish.
I primed my background with some Clear Gesso and used a TCW Stencil to apply some Tacky when Dry medium to. I wanted to add some actual sparkle to the Fab AB Studio background and used Guilding flakes…
Once I brushed off all my flake I used a Dusty Attic Stencil and a sponge to push it into the background a little. I didn’t want the gold to overpower the project..
Once the paint was dry I added some colour with Distress inkpad and some sprays. I knew the colour would re-activate and this was the effect I was after. I wanted a milky background with a hint of coral and shimmer… How did I go?
I used a metallic paint to colour my title and again… a touch of sparkle, this time with wax. I did a plain emboss of the Cosmic Swirl. It was too pretty to alter too much so I kept ot simple… It matched my Junior Bridesmaids anyway!!
Here you can see the LEAP! Yep, bold and metallic… but purple!
Ironically it is my favourite colour but I just cannot create with it!
