To begin, I spritzed some water on my pages. I lightly sprayed the Bling-y Blonde and Pretty in Pink Pink sprays and then added more water and moved the page around to blend the colors a little. I mopped up some of the water with a paper towel and then added a few splashes of each color to intensify the color in some spots and dried off with a heat tool.
I added a little random text stamping using black archival ink.
Next, using a paint brush, I applied some gesso to help soften the background.
I selected a couple of washi tapes with similar colors to add to my page, this gave me some additional texture and makes the background more interesting to look at. I added a little more gesso over the tape with a palette knife to give the page a more cohesive look and dried off thoroughly.
Using archival ink and some stamps, I have added a border and some circles.
I added my embellishments, a gorgeous lotus die cut and some dew drops. Some gesso was applied to the circles to help them pop up from the background. Using the Shabby turbine teal spray a few light splashes were added to the page above the lotus. I applied some shading to the underside of the lotus with a black stabilo all pencil and then using the Shabby Turbine Teal spray and a paint brush, I painted the 'water' for the lotus to sit on.
A 'Whichcraft' chipboard title, some black archival ink around the edges and a few black splatters finished the page off.
