Aim For The Moon - For Colour Blast

Hello, Its Kerry here.  I have been inspired by all the galaxy projects I have been seeing.  I had this wooden panel in my craft room, I had painted it previously but never liked it so it sat in my UFO (unfinished object) box.  It had this great cracked texture, so I prepared it by giving it a good coat of black gesso.


 I started liberally spraying the shimmer sprays in 'Rose petal', 'Deep Water' and 'Singin the Blues' and dried it thoroughly.

 Once dry, I used a dauber and some white gesso to give some 'cloud' like areas to the panel.

 Next I used one of my favorite craft supplies... baby wipes :)  I sprayed the baby wipe with 'Bling', 'Rose Petal', 'Singin the Blues', 'Deep Water' and 'Snow white' and dried this thoroughly also.

Then I tore the baby wipe into small strips.

 Using the embossing powder in 'Bling' I embossed some Whichcraft chipboard embellishments.

To put it all together I flicked some 'stars' with white ink on the background and painted a few with a fine brush. I layered my baby wipe with some black gauze.  I attached the embossed stars and frame and printed this quote (one of my favorites, some people say its by NV Peale, other sources say W Clement Stone). A sprinkling of glitter and microbeads and we're finished :)

Thanks for dropping by :)

Wishing in the Rain - for Colour Blast

Hello.  It's Kerry here again with another journal page.... with yes, more fairies...LOL!

This time I have started with the Colour Blast Embossing Powder in  'Deep Water', 'Dusty Charcoal' and 'Bling'.  I have used some different sized lids for some circles. and embossed the circles on some 300gsm watercolour paper.

I then sprayed some shimmer sprays in 'Bling' and 'Deep Water' on the background of the page and sprayed the 'Dusty Charcoal' heavily on one end and allowed the drips to run down the page.

I used some white gesso to bring my circles back to the front of the page.

I stamped some text into the circles and some dots on the background with some Black Archival Ink and highlighted my circles with a Black Stabilo All pencil.

Using my fingers, I coloured in the circles with the pastes in 'Sunshine', 'Singin the Blues' and 'Rose Petal'.

Then I highlighted the circles with the 'Snow White' paste. 

I added some Whichcraft mini fairies and wish title.

I finished off with some more stamping and a bit of glitter.

Thanks for stopping by.
