There were a few things that I had been wanting to try for ages and so set to it!
I started off by creating a brayered background using Paper Artsy Fresco paints - Sugar Plum, Bourganvilla and Eggplant.
Once dry I then sprinkled Paper Artsy Infusions - Are You Cerise, Blueberry and a touch of Black Knight. I just LOVE these powders!
I made sure this was dry completely and then got some Paper Artsy stamps out and stamped randomly in Watering Can Archival and White Staz On
This is a close up of one of the corners...
To finish I used my Portfolio pastels to add extra depth of colour and to scribble!! Yes! I scribbled!! I have Kate Crane to thank for my scribbling - I almost cried when I had to scribble in a workshop the first time! lol!!
And here is the finished background.
My plan is to, at some stage, use it for card backgrounds.
I had so much fun creating this.... it really helped me relax and enjoy every minute!
Let's hope I get more of those opportunities!
Thanks for looking.....
