It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Food and/or Drinks. Are you addicted to coffee or enjoy a nice cup of tea, or maybe you're inspired by food and/or drinks in another way, please share your creation with us!
Last week, I received my shopping spree and I couldn't wait to go play with everything I picked out, and what better than to try them all is by playing around in an art journal. I had some trouble with the theme of this week. But I had found some liquor and milk labels in the Ephemera Melange from Prima Marketing and and made them into my starting point. I really love the Silicone Brush Media Prima Marketing. It's so easy to clean. Then when I started with Distress Crayons, coincidentally all the colors I've used were named after food, I wasn't happy with the look. Quickly I applied another layer of Gesso on top of it and had to try something new. My new inspiration was to use food named products.
Talking about something new, I've applied a layer of Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Magic Blue Opal - Gold paint on top of it all. Wow! That is some cool stuff! It has a great shimmer, but the magic is that the color of the background makes what color it becomes! Like the Blue-Gold, this is baby blue on light surfaces and gold on dark surfaces. How amazing is that?! Love it!
After I'd applied this paint, I was a lot happier and that the Distress Crayons were still subtle underneath. That gave it such a beautiful effect. Now it was time for contrast, and another product I wanted to use from my shopping spree was the Industrial stencil. I used the last of the Embossing Paste which I've colored with Black Soot.
I also have many layers applied with stamps, ink, paint, washi tape and Twisted Citron Distress Crayon. For some reason it looks so much brighter in the photo and video than in real life. In real life Opal Magic is much more baby blue. I'm not sure how to capture it on video and photos properly.
For all the steps I made to create this yummy art journal spread, see the video below.
