February 2017 Lindy's Stampgang Color Challenge

Hi and Hallo to all of you...
Today I am sharing a Journal spread that I created using the Color Challenge from Lindy's Stampgang for February. As you can see, this is a lovely rich and lustrous color palette. I just had a lovely and rewarding play with the different colours and products from Lindy's.

I started by Gesso'ing the pages and added some Crackle texture paste. While the paste was still wet, I stamped some circle images into the paste. Next I sprayed some of the Salt Water Taffy and Poinsettia Red Gold Starburst Sprays in the middle of the pages. 

Using a paintbrush and water, I just painted the following Mists into the stamped areas until I was satisfied with the look. The fun part is watching the inks wick when added to a little water.

To add some interest and depth to the images, I added some Grab a Guy Gold to the inside of the circles.

Here I used a stencil and some texture paste coloured with some Lindy's Terra Cotta Mica's and randomly embossed with Angel Wing Peacock Embossing Powder.

Some fibers and a few hand-stitched details complete the pages.

I used the following products from the Lindy's store...

Flat Fabio: Queen of Hearts Red
            Poinsettia Red Gold
       Salt Water Taffy
Embossing Powder: Angel Wing Peacock
Terra Cotta Mica's

Thank you for your visit to my Blog today...

Dusty Attic DT Project-February 2017

Hello Dear Blog Friends...
Today I share an altered Photo-frame as my Dusty Attic project for the month. For once I was able to keep it rather feminine and soft...

I gave the frame a light coating of watered down Gesso just to break the wood a little. Using the Distressed Grid Stencil and a little Tropical Lagoon All Purpose Ink I gave a fist layer of stencilling. Next I used the Distressed Diamond Stencil and White Crackle Paste.

I added strips of Corrugated card to the background. I did some painting with the All Purpose Ink and Deep Waters Metallique Ink from Finnabair. Lastly I gave it all a misting with Glory of the Sea Gold Starburst Spray from Lindy's Stampgang.

All my chipboard pieces, The Scrolls, Ornate Corner #13 and small Lamp Post #4, were embossed using Lindy's Embossing Powders; Desert Moon Turquoise and Hyacinth Blue Jade.

I coloured the Vintage Clock #2 with the Tropical Lagoon All Purpose Ink. Also used several Prima and Petaloo flowers. For added detail and interest I added Aqua Net and Baby It's Cold Outside Prills.

I hope you have enjoyed this little project of mine...

When words become unclear, 
I shall focus with photographs. 
When images become inadequate, 
I shall be content with silence.
