Hello everyone! Athanasia here, and I’m very excited to share with you my first project for Lindy’s Stamp Gang’s Seasonal DT! This month we have a super beautiful color pallet with several shades of purple with a little bit of coral, so I wanted to include all these pretty colors on my page.
Most of the times I like to use for my layouts photos I find on the internet, and that’s what I did this time. I love this photo with all these floating lanterns, it’s so beautiful just like our color pallet is!
In order to create the background, I used the January 2015 Limited Edition Spray Set.
I covered some desired spots around the photo with gesso, then I used the purple sprays: I sprayed on a small clear plastic surface (you can find a lot of them in the packages of clear stamps, at least this is what I do), and then I ‘stamped’ it on the page, so as to create a water color effect.
I really like this effect!
As I wanted to keep it simple, I only did some stamping here and there, with a floral stamp, and that’s all for the background. Then, I used the sprays to color the flowers, and also to make some splashes around the composition, as a final touch.
Well, I can’t wait to see your projects for the January Color Challenge! Thank you for stopping by today. Have a lovely day!
