More pages and a What If?

Here are some more images from my weekend at Crop Haven...

added color using Ranger Dylusions Ink Sprays (took lids off and poured small amount into palette tray) and brushed on with very wet paint brush. Colors I used were Lemon Zest, Vibrant Turquoise and Melted Chocolate.

sprayed with a very good amount of water to blend, closed the book to meld and then once dried - added some washi tape to continue with the linear lines

have had this stamp for a bit (Donna Downey She Is) now and really wanted to add it to a page, but wanted it done a bit different.  So looking around my table for some inspiration...ding!  What If....I stamped the image using wendy vecchi's translucent embossing paste?  Why Not?!   

Here goes nothing....

Since I was going to have to wait for it to dry (probably over night) I decided to use my new Dina Wakley Stencil Affirmations over top of some good ol' drywall mesh (you know me, never enough texture).  This time around I used Wendy Vecchi's Black Embossing Paste (vs the usual of me just mixing black paint with modeling paste).  Not sure if I can really tell the difference in the result, but did like it - as you can see, I did over apply it in a few areas, but I am ok with that.

Here is the result the next morning...well not quite as I added more Lemon Zest & Vibrant Turquoise and then water over the stamped image so to bring it out (I actually tried first to ink it, epic fail) - this was my attempt to fix it!

after adding some gelato to the edges, I can live with it now!

Next page was a fun one!  I decided to create a background with 'paper' for a change as I hadn't done that in a while.  I dug through my tickle tote of paper goodies and came across some old House of Three  embellishments - tickets! I prep'd the page with Golden Gel Medium, started tearing tickets and sticking!

so not to keep things too 'normal' decided to change things up a bit and put the tickets the opposite direction on the opposing page!

Time to add some color...

colored the entire opposing page. Since I used gel medium, I was able to easily wipe off some of the paint through my Tim Holtz Laying Stencil Numbered with a baby wipe.

you can see on the hexagon side that I added some dark brown (some Studio Calico Mister Huey's Classic Dark Calico).  The hexagon is cut randomly from a sheet of Jillibean Soup Placemats White Hexagon.

once it was all adhered down, I added some stamped images from the House of Three stamp set Parisian Anthology.  The 'die cuts' are cut from the ephemera pack of the same series.  I of course had to add some black gelato to the edges!

Here are some close ups...

Thanks for stopping by....
