Below and welcome to a new challenge over at the Funkie Junkie Blog Challenge this weeks theme is Die-Na-mite.Dies can make a simple or boring project extra mighty... I want you to use your dies to make a project! They can be your main focus, or work in the background to make your project a little extra mighty.
Here I decided to work on a journal spread. For the journal spread I wanted to focus on the aspect of story telling of Sleeping Beauty. To fit the theme I have used a variety of die cuts to embellish and highlight the main focal point. For video instructions click here .
To start the journal I laid down a layer of white gesso with a wide brush. For this base coat it took about two layers to create a solid foundation.
Once the layers are were dry I worked on creating a marbled distress paint technique. To start with I splashed chipped saphire and broken china on the page. I then moved the paint around using a water mister and the Ranger heat tool.
For the second layer with paint I added in shaded lilac, kitch flamingo, and a dash of picket fence.
Next I took some of the idea-ology Botanical collage paper and tore it up to add to the background.
Then using some collage medium I glued in the different pieces of collage paper.
Now on to the fairies. Since this spread is built around the story of sleeping beauty I decided to add in the three good fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. To make these fairies I used TH paper dolls and some clear wings from Idea-ology.
