Currumbin Rockpools

A little bit of mixed media:


Materials
Ranger Tim Holtz - Tarnished Brass distress spray stain
Heidi Swapp Color Shine - Seafoam ink spray
Carabelle Studio Stitched Mixed Media Background stamp
Tsukineko Stazon - Jet Black archival ink
Unbranded wood veneer flowers
EK Success Jolee's Boutique white pearls
Upcycled packaging - transparent acrylic
Upcycled price tag

I'm joining in at these challenges:

* Mystical Scrapbooks ~ Stamped background
I don't do a lot of stamping on my layouts, so this was definitely a challenge for me. I used a large background stamp as my photo mat.

* Simon Says Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

* ScrapMir ~ Forest Stories  # Scrapmir_Ch8_21
I hope the team in Ukraine will enjoy seeing a layout featuring a forest setting in Australia.  {If I win a prize I'd love the Blue and Blush 8"x8" paper collection!}

A new technique

I tried something new! This is the layout I created:


Materials

Ranger Tim Holtz - Tarnished Brass distress spray stain
Heidi Swapp Color Shine - Seafoam ink spray
DCWV Palms & Ferns foil patterned paper (fussy cut flowers)
Upcycled packaging - transparent acrylic

My page was inspired by these challenges:

* Mystical Scrapbooks ~ Plastic wrap technique
I really enjoyed trying this technique - so fun and simple. I followed the tutorial shared by Julie Kairl.  These are some of my progress shots ~ the first one is the 'wet' sprays, and the second is covered with plastic wrap (still wet).

ARTastic in October

ARTastic Challenge has another fabulous challenge this month.  This is the beautiful inspiration piece by Australian artist Lyn Butchart:


The challenge criteria this month is MIXED MEDIA + INK.  

I created a collage background and added some spray ink.  I took my inspiration from the colour palette. After a semi-disastrous beginning (not happy with my first choice of bubblegum pink) I ended up having a lot of fun layering and layering and layering! Ink spray, tissue paper, gesso, acrylic paint, modelling paste. Sometimes you just have to let it happen.


Materials
Ranger Dylusions - Bubblegum Pink ink spray
Kaisercolour Spearmint acrylic paint
Tissue paper
Kaisercraft Quarters stencil
Little Birdie Mixed Media modelling paste
PortaCraft Hot Pink alphabet stickers

I'm sharing my page at Simon Says Wednesday for the Anything Goes theme.
