Flower Power

Hello crafters! 

It's finally Spring in full bloom and the theme is

My Art Journal spread is sunny and in a Spring mood.
I wanted the flowers to be a focal point and my background very neutral.
Unfortunatelly no step-by-step pics this time but some close-ups!

First I covered the whole surface with white gesso then applied some
 random layers od modeling paste and a touches of crackle paste.
I heat dried it all ( I know I should let it air dry but I am impatient!)
Next I put more modeling paste through the stencil and dried.
The best part was to apply colors very detailed and exactly in places 
I wanted the color to be put. This time I worked with a thin brush 
applying layers of colors and spreading it with a bit of water. 
It took ages but I am really happy with the effect. It was worth the time.

After I finished with the background, I sie dut lots of flowers, colored them in yellow, golden and distressed the edges with ground espresso.
I put black dots of dylusions paint in the center of each flower.

Postanowiłam sprawdzić o co tyle zamieszania z tymi papierami Piątek Trzynastego Hello Beautiful i kupiłam sobie jeden skromny arkusik na próbę.
Próba wykonana, w rezultacie nie rozumiem dlaczego kupiłam tylko jeden!
Na chwilę musiałam chyba zapomnieć, że mam świra na punkcie magnolii 
a te z kolekcji jak wyżej, są zdecydowanie obłędne. 
Do tego pięknie się komponują z szarościami. 
Szykują się kolejne zakupy uzupełniające :-)


Let's Doodle

Oh what a fun this week over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
The theme is LET'S DOODLE
which has never been my thing until I tried that and I loved doodling!
This is such a funny way of giving projects a new look by just a bit of marker!
Really loved that and I am sure you will too.

While doodling remember that you could be a winner of a $50 voucher

That was really very nice to experiment with doodling 
the way I made two cards by accident, lol. 
I love them both which not happens too often :-)
Take a look of the close-ups and the listo of products below. 

 On the POSSIBILITIES card, first I stamped and embossed the fabulous 
triangle background stamp, then I played with giving some light colors 
with Distress Oxides. Finally I highlighted some of the triangles 
with a contrasting, black pen.
On my main panel I used a negative die of my favorite leaf die,
added more oxide colors and the fabulous
 Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint which I love. 
I doodled the leaf outside and inside toojust to give more dimension.
I die-cut the sentiment, doodled the edges
and covered with rock candy, too. 

 On the CREATE card, I played with my new Sterling Silver Modeling Paste
 on the background by just smearing it randomly and quite thick.
Then I gave it a fresh green color and splashed heavily with white paint.
My main panel is just a leftover from my ATC trio that I decided to keep.
The leaf is the same as on the first card, colored and doodled of course! '
The sentiment was made the same way as on the first card.
