Hi everyone. Welcome back to the Colour Blast Blog. I hope I can inspire you with today's layout. I don't normally use orange but I'm really happy with my finished layout.
To begin my layout I smeared Heavy White Gesso over my paper with my palette knife.
Using a juicy paint brush I soaked up my Barley Artist Ink & spread it over my gesso.
Using my heat gun I dried it, moving the ink around giving it some darker water marks.
Using my Stencil Girl stencil I spread through some Heavy White Gesso. I picked up the Barley Artist Ink giving it the orange look.
Using Stormy Weather Colour Paste I spread it through another stencil.
While I waited for my paste to dry I painted some white flowers with the Barley Artist Ink.
I added some Walnut Artist Ink into a water pen then painted some more white flowers.
I then dipped my tip straight into the ink tapping it onto the flower tips.
I painted my chipboard with the Walnut Artist Ink.
Using a sponge I sponged Heavy White Gesso through a stencil.
I embossed my chipboard with Stormy Weather Colour Embossing Powder & heat activated it. Then very quickly before it set pressed a crackle stamp into it.
I matted my photo. Putting cardboard behind my layers to give it depth.
I painted my title with Heavy White Gesso the gave it a coat of Glossy Accents.
I roughly painted my chipboard leaves with Walnut Artist Ink
I then gave them a thorough coat of Grass Artist Ink.
After I stuck all my elements down I covered my photo before giving it a splash with watered down Heavy White Gesso.
Here are a few close ups.
Thanks for looking.
See you next time.
