The Story of the Gumboots

Good Morning Arty Peeps!

Hope your weekend is full of fun with a little creativity thrown in, mine is shaping up just that way.

Today I'm sharing my sketch challenge layout, about hanging out with those who feed my soul with art and fun times.

Still using up my Colour Blast pastes, I made the background on heavy weight cardstock with a cool new Kinder Kreations mandala stencil, making sure to treat the paste with Dorland's Wax when dry, to stop the stickiness.

After the Dorland's I swiped some Ceramcoat black paint over my page top and bottom. When wiping it off the Colour Blast paste it was taking the paste with it, so I left it looking kinda grungy. I added a bit of zing to my background with some flicks of Lemon Zest Dylusions spray (the best yellow!).

For my layers I used this gorgeous stamp set with black ink on white card, adding some extra colour with Stazon ink and my Lemon Zest. The two word strips are from this pretty and versatile paper from Kaisercraft.

I journalled straight on the gesso with a white pen and added some white splats with Dylusions ink spray, I love how opaque this stuff is!

I used a title from this pack of foamThickers, and embellished with vellum hearts and buttons.

My page is based on this sketch

which is one of the August challenges on our Facebook page.
Come and play along for the chance to win spending money at the shop, you've gotta be in it to win it!
