Well first I want to say a huge thank you to US Artquest for choosing me to be part of this GREAT design team. I already owe Joe Rotella big time for pointing out that my post was due Saturday. Due to some illness in the last week, I had my company posts backwards!! UGH. So check back Monday for a post from The Robin's Nest!!! So this is what I did since figuring out my backwards day.
Step 1: Check your US Artquest Supplies on Hand
Step 3: DING DING DING...I need a notebook to take to CHA so why not make a cool one!
Step 4: Collage/Paint/Stamp Canvas. I used the Perfect Pigments Paint (PPP) and A Palette of Stargazers Paints. This is the first time using the PPP and I must say I LOVE the rich color and easy way they work. On the canvas I wanted the color less dense as I was going to use the stamped image over and then add other design elements.
Sty'lines pears as accents. I had a pear stencil from Dreamweaver and embossed with 101 artist cement. After dry I added mica powder to the pear. I then added some Diamond Glaze to the side of the pear and applied cool Mica Flakes!!!
Step 7: I added word and outline accents using the Line Writer and Duo Adhesive. After the Duo was applied I let dry then added the silver leafing.
I added extra Duo around the orange colored pear for more interest.
In this last photo you can see the shimmer of the Stargazer paint. See you in a couple of weeks on the correct day!
