Blue Dream

I like snorkelling among the fishes and swimming underwater as being  in a blue dream, therefore the project for this  summer month is inspired by this theme.

Step by Step :
1.  Draw the face of the stencil Julie Fei-Fan Balzer  in your  Delusion Creative Journal with a black
     Fude ball pen 
2.  Prepare your own wave stencil for the background and colour  the waves with
     Salty Ocean of Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inkpad      all around the face
3.  Blend other blue and green Mini Distress Inkpad shades on the waves to create the sea
4.  Add a very light gesso coat on all the sea and let it dry
5.  Decide how to make the hair and apply randomly with the pad Faded Jeans and Blueprint Sketch
     of Mini Distress Inkpad
6.  Colour the face with Pan Pastel 
7.  Stamp with Versafine Onyx Black several fish of the set Something Fishy in the hair and the little
     mermaid silhouette of Mermaid Queen set as earring
8.  Colour the fish with watercolour pencils
9.  Use Stickles Star Dust to highlight
10. Stamp and glue your sentiments.

This time it is a mixed media Card coloured with Distress Inkpad  with different brown and picket fence for the milky effect.

2. Stamp in the inside of the lid, Tangled Birch with Versamark and white embossing powder, and heat emboss.
3. Cut a piece of Tando Creative Cotton Canvas bigger than the outside of the lid and prime it with 
4. Alternate Distress Inkpad colors with a coat of watered down white Dina Wakley gesso and always let each coat dry well
5. Use Texturised Stencil with Distress Inkpad on the canvas where you like and stamp with Versafine 
    Onyx Black some stamps of Wild Meadow for finishing the background
6.  Stamp Tangled Birch and some birds of Landscape Edges set with Versafine Onyx Black, small
     flowers of Orchard Design a Tree with Versafine Habanero.
7.  Colour with the brush the Tangled Birch using brown and green shades of Distress Inkpad.
8.  Fix well with Glue n Seal matte the Canvas on the lid of the metal box and cut all around the
9. Put some highlights on Tangled Birch using Stickles Star Dust
