Wings Are Ready

Hello everyone. Shanna here and I am beyond excited to be a part of the design team and here sharing my first post with you as a design team member. 

Now on to the fun parts right!!!

I had so much fun picking out stamps and your head just pops with so many ideas. The thing I love most about the stamps is that you can color them or leave them plain stamped images. I love doing that as it makes the stamps pop off the project.

So I decided to kick it off with an art journal creation.



First I had some Tim Holtz tissue wrap that I added to my pages with some mate gel medium. After that I gave the pages a white wash with gesso.  Then I added some Dina Wakely Acrylic paint in the color turquoise and magenta. Spraying each color with some water to create paint drips. 
Then I used the stamp Wildflower Silhouette - 19556 (Plate 1451) with a Distress Marker Crushed Olive and stamped it twice at the bottom of the page.






Then I thought the Girl with Wings - 19005 (Plate 893) would look perfect for this spread. So I stamped her with the StazOn Ink and fussy cut her out. Although I decided to go ahead and pop her wings up for dimension. 





Then I couldn't help but add some glass bead gel for a little more texture. 
Then I wanted to add some brown and went for my Twinkling H20's, using the colors Cedarwood and Autumn Butternut. 



I tried hard to stick to the January challenge them the mood board is just amazing but I love pink and had to splash some in there.

Beautiful! I always love an excuse to whip out the glass bead gel - such cool stuff. That sentiment is one of my faves and Girl With Wings is so perfect with it!
