Hello Monday my friends! I hope this finds you well. Our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is SPRITZ AND SPLATTER. We are also showcasing the wonderful line of Paper Artsy products.
Please join me in welcoming our guest designer for this month, Cath Wilson of Inky Fingers. She has a lot of beautiful cards and projects on her blog, and I am looking forward to working together this month. Welcome aboard, Cath!
I headed to my art journal with some fish and lots of fun shapes. I did not intentionally do this, but when I look at my pages, I see a huge fish underlying all these smaller fish, do you see it?
I started with two lighter colors on my black pages, and spread them with a brayer.
NOTE: the paint colors I am using are very similar to the ones I've listed in the supplies.
Stenciled on some big blue dots...
Next up, smaller dots...
I mixed these colors as I sponged the Waves stencil across the pages.
I stamped my images and colored them with Tombow markers, fussy cut them, and started to lay them out. I added in a bit of book paper to bring it all together.
Time for some splatter with Cloud 9, a bit of water and the splatter brush. Then I tried wiping the splatter brush across the background to create a stronger focal area. I like how it streaked the paint across the pages.
Final step was sprinkling on some Paper Artsy Infusions and spritzing with a mister. I let some of the excess drip down the side, trying to create a feeling of movement through the water. Final step was to draw a wave-like line across the base with Rosy metallic paint.
Time to get out your spritzing and splattering materials and join us in this week's challenge! I am looking forward to seeing what you make, Maura
As you may know, the Simon Says Stamp Store is accepting new orders, but have longer shipping times for the moment due to the coronavirus. With this in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend the $50 voucher for this challenge.
We know that many people are staying safe at home and we would love it if you would continue to enter the challenges and have fun! We are all in this together!
A great place to shop!!
