Hello friends, and welcome to our challenge for this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - SUMMER FUN! Share with us how you have fun in the summer by creating something. I love to go the beach, especially at the ocean, to wade, be on the beach and watch the waves, maybe sketch, and I am looking forward to that this summer.
BEACH DAYS are the best!
I headed to my art journal and planned to just do one page, so I glued some strips of Carta Bella's Summer Splash paper (SSS July card kit) on the page.
Next, I brushed Paper Artsy Candy Floss and Coral up and down the page.
Time to add some dimension with texture paste and Simon's Large Moroccan stencil.
Once the texture paste dried, I went in with several Dylusion sprays to add another layer of color. It was at this point when I noticed the sprays had gone over the other page, that I decided to do a spread.
Next, I toned it down a bit with the Antarctic paint.
Time to add more layers, and stencils are great for this! I used several different stencils with varying paints by the time I was done.
I cut out a number of flamingos from the July card kit, and kept the "scrap" to make my own stencil from it. I sponged Candy floss on the the other page to add a couple of birds.
Dandelion Pops, tropical flowers and flamingos...
Texture, Dandelion Pops, tropical flowers, beach scene, a sparkly flamingo that I just had to add a feather to...
Well now I can't wait to get to the beach!
