Lets Get Sketchy Mid month reveal

Hello Scrappy Friends, I am behind again.  I really dont know where time flies to!!  One day soon I will get my life in order and my act together and post when I am supposed to.

Until then, here is the wonderful April 15 sketch from Lets Get Sketchy, and my example:

I love the Kaisercraft Wandering Ivy collection. Iran out of hearts from the Collectibles pack so used the only one I had as a template and hand cut some more from some scrap paper. I also fussy cut some flowers for embellishments and used a piece of butter muslin for texture under the photo.

thanks for stopping by today - hope to see your creation at Lets get Sketchy

Off the Rails Scrapbooking Reveal

Hello Scrappy Friends

I am up on the Off the Rails Blog with an art journal page I created for our April challenge - Colour Bomb

April Challenge

And here is the finished page

I started by brushing a coat of clear gesso onto my journal page.  I love the Liquitex brand as it is grainy and adds texture to the page to start with.  Whilst waiting for this to dry I gathered together my supplies.

I took the 2 smallest stitched circle stamps from the Colour Blast stamp set and using the black stamp pad, stamped the larger of the 2, 3 times down the middle of the page.  I then took the smaller stamp and stamped that top and bottom and also inside the larger circles.  I then took the row of circles from the MME stamp set and stamped that between the larger circles.

I took the Kaiser paint in Royal Blue and Lime and dry brushed the circles, alternating the colours.
I them watered down the paint and splattered both colours all over the page.
When dry, I took the Kaiser Bubblewrap stamp and using a number of colours of Distress Inks, I stamped on both sides of the painted circles.

 I then used Dylusions Rose Quartz Ink Spray and lots of water to create the drip lines from the top of the page down.  I do apologise but my camera stopped working at this stage so I have no closeups of this.  When dry I added some Jane Davenport Washi Tape to the top of the page. 

At this stage I was really happy with how my page was coming together and loved the colour bomb I had created but thought it needed more!

Using a small Kaiser stencil, I applied Viva Inka Gold in Hydrangea, andCosmic Shimmer Paste in Polar White and Ocean Spray in various places on the page.
I finished the journal page with a sticker from 13 @rts - Marta Lapkowska Small Messages.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for our Colour Bomb challenge.
