Hello Everyone - Jennie (Live the Dream) here with you today and welcome to the last of this month's (new look) Destination Inspiration. As you know four Creative Guides will each month nominate a substrate, a main colour, a technique and a product to be included in each of our projects.
The March Ingredients are:
Substrate - Tag
Main Colour - Peacock Feathers
Technique - Spritz and Flick
Product - Idea-ology Metal
So this is what I cooked up with these fabulous ingredients.
Apart from the addition of a little Frayed Burlap Distress Ink you could call this 50 shades of Peacock Feathers! It is amazing the different colours you can achieve by blending softly, adding more pressure, or even changing the material.
This was my background: Lightly blended Peacock Feathers and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks which were then spritzed and flicked with water. I then overstamped with Tim's wonderful text stamp using the Peacock Feathers again. I say overstamped I actually lay the tag onto the stamp and press lightly to get this random look as it is such a large stamp.
I then added some Ranger Texture Paste which as it was drying picked up a little of colour underneath.
Flowers were made in my usual way (tutorial here!) using the Tattered Floral Die and the Peacock Feathers again with just a little Frayed Burlap around the edge. I love the way the ribbon and the die cut take the ink quite differently and so again more shades of PF!
I even managed to paint the jumper in the Photo Booth picture! Finally I added some black embellishments and Rub Ons to set off all these "shades".
We really hope you have enjoyed this new look Destination Inspiration and now we hand the baton over to another four Creative Guides for a completely different recipe.
But for the record here are our four pieces for this month so you can see how we have each in our different styles interpreted the same ingredients. I think you will agree four very different pieces which just goes to show how versatile these wonderful products are.
