Feeling a little creative I began forming lots of words …
Hmm, as romantic as the words plop and poop are, and as big as the words serenity and harmony are, they just weren’t quite right.
I finally settled on a very simple ‘be free’ phrase.
Reaching for the Pinflair Glue Gel I began assembling the layers and again applied a coat of white gesso.
Time for some floral fluffery I reckon.
Again raiding the stash I found some Tim Holtz metal embellishments. laser cut feathers, brads and some random plastic flowers.
I laid these out to check how they would work in the design.
Nice! Happy with that.
I wanted to keep the flowers as they were so removed those and glued down the metallic embellishments, brads and wooden shapes.
All of this was again coated in a light layer of white gesso.
Time for some colour.
From this point it was a case of using a variety of coloured inks to dry brush the background and to highlight the features within the main design cluster until I was happy.
The final touch was a stamped face using a free stamp that I got along with an old issue of Craft Stamper Magazine using a teal coloured ink and then edging it with purple inkpads.
Now, I will be honest, the ’empty’ background was niggling on my nerves however as a good friend recently told me, ’embrace the space!’ so I called it a day and decided that this particular creation was complete!
Here is a little gallery of images for you to have a nosey around.
So, what do you think?
Good colour choice? Good layout?
What would you have done differently?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this one.
See you again tomorrow with more bloggy wafflings.
