Hello there! Athanasia
here today to share my third layout inspired by the January’s Color Challenge. My theme is about a dreamworld, and what happens there, so I wanted to give to my page a lot of sparkle, flow, and a bit of fascination with the
January 2015 Limited Edition Spray Set….
Now, let me tell you some basic steps I follow to create a page. As usual, I choose a photo from the internet – this is always the first step. According the theme, and the colors of the photo I match the paper sheet, the embellishments, and of course the color pallet of the media (here I used mists and gesso). Then, I start with the background: for this page I applied some gesso, and after that I had a lot of fun with the mists. I prefer to spray not directly on the paper, rather on a small clear plastic surface and do something like stamping work. This creates a watercolor effect, which I absolutely love doing on my projects…
…after that, I like to stamp with several stamps, in order to create an interesting mixed media background. I also love doing a lot of splashes at the end of the process.
I also had to alter the chipboard frame and the flowers in order to match the color pallet of my page, so I painted them with the purple mists and then glued some purple sparkly dust on them…That’s all for today, I hope you got some inspiration – Don’t forget our January Color Challenge which is still running! Have a wonderful week!
