For my AALL & Create project today, I have made another 6 x 6 panel. I love making these because the size is pretty perfect for me. Not too big, not too small. Of course you could make this as big or as small as you want !
I love these 'Rubarb and Custard' colours and enjoyed making it although it almost landed in the bin when I messed up the edges and had to put a few more layers of paint on to hide my blunder ! lol
Anyway, here is how I made it:
I cut a panel measuring 6"x 6" out of thick white card stock. I then brayered on the yellow acrylic paint. I used all Amsterdam Acrylics for this project. Next I brayered on the pink and then put the stencil over it when it was still wet. I used a baby wipe to wipe away the paint through the stencil. This is a fab technique and I love doing it.
Next, another two of my favourite things: I used this 'Digital Bubbles' stencil; I smeared Distress Oxide ink on it, sprayed it with water and printed it onto my panel. I then dabbed off the excess. It is very subtle but it is there. Next I brayered white paint over the top to tone everything down.
Another favourite is heat embossing over paint. So, that is what I did. I stamped this fantastic stamp over the top of my panel using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I love this effect.
I also brayered brighter pink around the edges and added some modelling paste through this stencil which is called 'Rota Vitae'. I didn't like this bright pink and so the problems started... I added grey, black, didn't like it, doodling, stamping, didn't like that either so I went back in with light pink and white paints and it ended up a little lighter as you can see in the finished project photo. I like it much better now.
I stamped the seahorses onto book paper, which is another favourite of mine ! I cut them out and did the same with the sentiments.
And there it is. I added some stamping in grey along the left bottom and right top corners and doodled around the panel with a pencil, I also added some black splatters. I used a pink pencil to add some colour to the sentiment strips.
A detailed photo.
And another, you can still spot a little of the grey and black mess under the pink paint.
