Digi Choosday – Week 34 – Anything Goes

Morning, it’s Tuesday and the start of a new challenge at Digi Choosday.

The theme is – Anything Goes.

I’ve chosen to make an art journal page using the latest release from Polkadoodles Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection and some Dylusions paints.

 Step by Step

Used a graphics program to resized the sunglasses images from the Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles collection, available on CD-ROM or as instant download.

Created the quote using a graphics program.

Printed and cut out the sunglasses and text.

Used Dylusions paints to create the background on the page, using Cherry Pie, Lemon Zest and Squeezed Orange.

To add more interest to the background, used various stencils, from Imagination Crafts & Dylusions, with a blending tool and Dylusion paints, in the same colours as above.

Used several stamps from Polkadoodles to add further interest to the background, using Archival inks in various colours.

Lemonade Fizz – used the spotty heart stamp

Lavender Tea – used the small circles & tiny flowers

Also used some Hobby Art textures stamps, with Archival inks, to add depth the page.

Arranged the sunglasses and text on the page and adhered with DecoArt Matte Medium.

Used a black Posca paint pen to colour some of the sunglasses frames.

Added a border around each piece of text using black Posca paint pen.

Stamped the tiny heart, from Polkadoodles Magic Garden stamp set, in the lenses of some of the sunglasses, using black Archival ink.

Used a white Derwent Graphik Paint Liner pen to add some emphasis some of the stencilling in the background.

Add some detail to the text using a white Derwent Graphik Paint Liner pen.

Used the white Derwent Graphik Paint Liner pen to add more detail to the dotty heart in the background.

Used a red Pan Pastel on the word ‘heart’

Used a dark blue Pan Pastel around the sunglasses to add some shadow.
