Hello to you all.
Natalie here sharing another project using the Color Challenge Set for June.
These colours work beautifully together and I knew straight away that I wanted
to blend them together for a page.
Here are a few simple steps to recreate this page
|I used 3 sheets of thick Mixed Media cardstock and used a blade to cut curves and straight lines|
|I started with Summer Lovin Sun spray and magical, and used a water brush to paint on the color.|
|By using a water brush, I could thin it down and make it lighter by adding more water or dip again and intensify the color|
|I then added Magicals in the same colour to add some deeper color in spots.|
|I love the depth that has been created through the water and Magicals|
|I then repeated the process with Kissin Kenickie Coral|
|and the Kissin Kenickie Magical as well|
|And again in Pink Ladies Pink with the spray and matching Magical|
|To get the ‘Inbetween’ color I was after, I colored some more strips with Kissin’ Kenickie Coral and then gave them a spray with Pink Ladies Pink
while they were still wet… this produced a lovely deep coral color.
|I then allowed them the dry in the sun before separating them into their color piles|
|As I knew I was covering the background, I used a cardstock that wasn’t going to be seen.
I ran strips of tape down the page to secure the layers.
Starting at the top, I added all the Pink strips first then worked my way down to the yellow.
|Make sure they are all secured properly|
|I trimmed a little off the edges and then matted it on black cardstock to create a frame|
|For the Imaginarium chipboard title, I coated with spray gesso first, then used Magicals to
add the color and blend into each other. I then gave it a spray with Pink Ladies Pink to finish and again allowed it to dry in the sun.
I am super pleased with how this page came out … all those luxurious layers of color.
And when I took it outside … the shadows created even more layers and texture!
I cant wait to try this out with other color combos.
Thanks for stopping by.
