SOC4 Week 1

Yipee!
Well its the start of SOC4 over at Twinkle, Twinkle like a Star, the colours were Aqua Blue, Yellow and a touch of Hot Pink.
So here goes.....
First I had to find appropriate colours, I chose Mermaid, Beach Hut, Bora Bora and South Pacific for the aqua Blue. Zesty Zing and Yellow Submarine for the yellow and a couple of dylusions spray inks Hot Pink and Fuschia.  


To start I used a stencil and grunge paste for a touch of background texture,then added the yellows the lighter one to cover the entire canvas and then the other to add depth. I used the spray inks to add pink element, I maybe got a little carried away.
  

 Stamping was added in a pink and yellow archival ink and  treasure gold to add a bit of bling.


Paint was brayered onto good quality card, some blue spray ink was added to perk up the colour followed by a tad more stamping in blue archival ink.  Flowers were die cut and shaped from this blue card and some hot pink and yellow coloured card made at the weekend for a different project.

This was all stuck together with hot glue gun. I made the centre of the small flowers using hot glue and a bit of glitter, just to finish the look.

Hope you like the finished canvas.

  2. I really like this, and I like how you took us through your creation. I have never tried grunge paste, but it looks like a fun addition to this beautiful canvas. You have a real eye for this.

  6. Lovely result. And thanks for showing us what you did to make the individual papers and parts.

    Hint: Instead of glue gun and glitter, I use glittery nail polish for a bit of "bling." It doesn't fall off or rub off and is no mess at all to use. It's difficult to do anything really tiny or detailed, but otherwise it works great. I look for polish at discount stores, dollar stores, or on sale for $1 or less, or sometimes BOGO for $2. I usually choose metallic or sparkly which both come in a rainbow of colors.

    Thanks for stopping to see my SOC.

    1. Hi, thank you for popping by my blog. Grunge Paste is one of my fav products to add texture to a piece, there are lots of videos to help explain how to use it. The one I use is Paperartsy product but you can make your own from baby powder and PVA glue, it's very addictive. : )
