‘Silly Selfies’

I have a bright and fun page to share this week! This is a selfie captured of myself and a good scrapping friend, with a big heart and an amazing spirit. As you can see, we do need some selfie practice, though!

When I saw the Jane Davenport stamps arrive in the shop – I thought ‘ooh la la!’
I have used the ‘JD MM Acrylic Stamp 4 Jane Girls’ set on the background with a permanent black ink like ‘Stazon Ink Jet’ in black. 

On some heavy white cardstock sheet primed with Dina Wakley Clear Gesso, I coloured the background. I sprayed it with water – as did not want the paints to look opaque. Then, using an old gift card, I smeared paint on. I used Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic in both Ocean and Turquoise. I also used Dylusions Paints – Lemon Zest and Bubblegum Pink.

Before the paints had dried, I grabbed a baby wipe the Crafter’s Workshop – Mini Cell Theory Stencil, I rubbed it off randomly around the page.

Over the top of the paints I splattered Dylusions Shimmer Spray, by Dyan Reaveley, randomly around the page in ‘Bubblegum Pink’. I also used Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stains in ‘Picket Fence’ and ‘Broken China’.

Before I adhered my photo down, I stamped the background with a Carabelle Studio Art Stamp ‘Edges in my journal’ and cut strips of Pink Fresh Studio paper from the ‘Escape the Ordinary’ Collection in ‘Dare’.

For the cluster, I used paper flowers – these ones were from Kaisercraft and Maggie Holmes. The flair was from Cocoa Vanilla Studio Flair – Free Spirit Collection.

And finally, for the title, I used the superb American Craft‘Thickers’!

 Thank you for popping by to have a look.

I hope it leaves you feeling inspired!
