Hello ! Welcome to today's inspirational post, it's Sue here and I decided to create another project in line with the current theme 'Oh so Blue'. You still have a few days to join in with us !
I gave my journal page a coat of Gesso to seal it then used Fresco Finish Turquoise. I used the circle stencil which is by TCW, with Snowflake Fresco Finish.
I don't know what it is but I love large numbers and this stencil by TCW is one of my firm favourites. It's also great for using with the 'bumping' technique. I stencilled the numbers with Mermaid Fresco Finish then moved the stencil slightly and stencilled again with Space Cadet Fresco Finish.
To add some texture I used Ranger Texture Paste through a Dina Wakley stencil and then continued using the stencil with Snowflake Fresco Finish.
I wanted to 'knock back' the page and tie everything together so I used Space Cadet again, this time mixed with some satin glaze and painted it all over the page. After a minute I used a baby wipe to wipe it away, leaving some of the colour behind.
I've stamped some script over the page using a Tim Holtz stamp and Cornflower Blue Archival ink then stamped the poppies (which you can just about see!) on both pages.
I used Snowflake Fresco Finish slightly watered down to paint the poppy heads.
I stamped and cut out some Wendy Vecchi flowers onto Prima watercolour paper then painted them with watered down Fresco Finish paint.
The word Create is a laser cut MDF piece that I've painted with Fresco Finish paint then rubbed White Fire Treasure Gold over it.
On the opposite page I used a PaperArtsy Hotpicks stamp, stamping the tulip flower and butterflies onto more watercolour paper.
To balance the pages I added a single butterfly to the opposite page. Finally, to make the numbers pop I grabbed my white Sharpie pen and outlined them.
I hope you've enjoyed today's inspirational post and I also hope it's given you inspiration to join in with the current challenge, Oh so Blue !
