Well hello there my crafty neighbors!!! I'm on the blog today to share with you a brand new sketch challenge for Colorful Creations!!!
"Just Let Go" with 7 Dots Studio "Illumination" Collection
It's mid month and time for another fabulous sketch at Colorful Creations!!! I absolutely LOVED working this sketch, and had a blast playing with this new collection!!!
So, any who... Here is this week's sketch:
This is also my very first challenge over at Scrap Around The World! I've followed their blog and Facebook page for quite some time, and am always in awe over the VERY talented design team and member entries!!! I know my work doesn't even come close to the beautiful art on their site, but I decided to "just let go" and give it a shot anyway!!!
Here is the SATW Mood Board for April:
Isn't it fabulous?!? LOVE IT!!!!
And here is my page:
This is one of my favorite photos of me and my husband!!! It was taken aboard a dinner cruise shortly before our actual cruise to the Bahamas!
I started with one of the papers from the "Illumination" collection and went to work creating my background!
I added a some gesso to the center of the page, then added various Gelatos atop of it, spreading them around with my fingers and a bit of water. I used White Dylusions mist to create the spatters at the top left and bottom right, and a black stamp marker with the circle template to create circles across the page.
After I was satisfied with my background, I started layering on my papers, stickers, and various embellishments. I was inspired by the beautiful butterflies in the mood board so I added some from the "Beauty of Nature" April kit at Frosted Designs! I used my Lindy's Magicals to add some color and shine to both of them!
For the chipboard one, I used "Whale Watch Blue"...
And for the metal one, I applied some gesso first, then the "Cape Cod Coral" magical:
I used my "Victorian Velvet" distress ink to color the coordinating chipboard pieces from the collection, then added Lindy's Stamp Gang "Glitz Spritz" for added color and shine!
I finished the page with some circles created with more liquid pearls, a ton of flowers, and distress glitter!
Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
