Hello everyone,

I am so happy to announce that I was invited to join the Creative Team of the lovely DeeDee Catron's UmWow Studio !  Of course I accepted. It is really nice to extend my creative journey to other things like these lovely chipboards. The are fabulous to combine with rubber stamps!! 

For my first post I have created an art journal page:

I started with a piece of manilla card stock and painted a layer of gesso on it. After that dried I painted over the gesso with some Silks. I used a blue and a green. It gives a lovely shimmer. 
Because I thought it was not dark enough I used Distress Crayons over the top and sealed them with Distress Collage Medium, which is just gel medium I think. It makes the crayons go streaky which I liked. Next I used a Prima Marketing 'Finnabair' stencil called 'Bubbles' to create, well, the bubbles... lol. I used white paint and a blending tool for this.
I then used some VivaLasVegaStamps! to stamp the background and add some more interest. I used several colours of Archival Inks for this, always making sure they blend in. 
The jar, jar label and sentiment are also rubber stamps by VivaLasVegas!
The chipboards I were painted with gesso and coloured with Distress Crayons. I heat embossed both to add interest but also to make the Crayons permanent. I used a holographic powder for the fish and a clear powder for the seaweed. 
After colouring everything I arranged it on the background until I was happy and glued everything down. Lastly I used a small piece of 7Dots Studio pattern paper (Destination Unknown by DeeDee Catron) at the bottom to make the sand at the bottom of the sea. 

I have used these chipboard pieces:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
