I had some Retail Therapy the other day and snagged some items I've been wanting.
I got the new Small Creative Journal from Dylan Reaveley, and the Olde Curiosity Shoppe stamp set from Graphic 45.
This is the end product of my day of fun in the Studio. I LOVED it.
I started with adding bright colors of Distress Inks with blending tools to the perfectly sized pages.
Start with the lighter yellows in the middle and build out with darker colors. I always use 2 shades of the same color to get a base and a shaded look...eq. Ripe Persimmon and Spiced Marmalade, or Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers.
Next I "clapped" some water drops onto the inked paged, and then used the Large Diamond Background II from Retro Cafe Art Gallery with Peacock Feathers to break up the color.
Then I stamped the fabulous Bottles with Jet Black and the Labels with Coffee Archival Ink!
I used Fresco Paint to add white dots with the Mixed Media Stampset from Tim, as well as the Chickenwire stamp.
The other stampset Classic Favorites 02 has creates the pedistals and backgrounds.
The Night Sky - Phases of the Moon stencil from Retro Cafe is used in 3 places, and then has many layers of penmarks around them.
I really like how the bottles from Graphic 45 turned out, but I added some artistic scribbles around them and lots of Distress Markers as well.
REALLY liking the new BRIGHT shades that came out.
This is my pile of supplies used for the page.
Check out the links and as always, ask me any questions that you may have.
