For anyone who has followed this blog or knows me, my style is very clean and simple, square corners, symmetrical and balanced. I think that is because the rest of my life is so chaotic that my creativity time needs to balance that! I don't do a lot of collage and mixed media. It hurts my brain.
BUT sometimes we need to step out of our comfort zone to grow and so that is exactly what I did today.
I began first by misting (okay, saturating) a piece of speckled cardstock with the Fireworks spray and then letting it drip downward. I love the combination of the splatter and the drips.
Then I paste embossed, using Dreamweaver's yellow embossing paste, the Two Daisies stencil using the sculpted paste technique to give it some texture. Once that was dry, I dabbed on some Stamp n Stick glue and then applied the Metallic F/X.
The imagine tag is shrink plastic which was stenciled with Black Stazon and colored on the back with Lemoncello Color Solutions.
The Dreamweaver products I used:The ribbons are May Arts (can you say gorgeous!), the spray is Tsukineko Fireworks and the stamps by Hero Arts are from an old, old, old set I cannot part with!
- LL405 imagine inspire believe
- LL549 Tall Daisies
- Lemoncello Color Solutions Alcohol Ink
- Yellow Matte Paste
- Forestry Metallic F/X
- Nouveau Orange Metallic F/X
Remember, if your local store doesn't carry Dreamweaver products, you can always find ALL of their products online at Stencil with Style, including the Stamp n Stick glue pad and finger daubers!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'd really like some input on this piece as it is quite different from me. Please either encourage me or totally discourage, either way, please just leave me your thoughts!
And remember to hop on over to the other Dreamers participating in this week's challenge:
I'll be back next week with a bit of May inspiration! Hugs and happy creating!!!!
