It is a monochromatic challenge.
And because I had just been to the Brisbane Papercraft/Scrapbooking Show and bought by official first pot of Colour Blast texture paste in Just Blue, that's where I started!
Here is my page and some close ups:
To create this background:
I used Colour Blast Just Blue Texture Paste through my Dusty Attic triangles stencil.
I then used my pale blue watercolours to wash across the background.
Scrappy-Arty genius Lisa Oxley, once showed me how to use house paint to dribble on the background. I had an old sample pot of white paint and I managed to dribble some of this onto the page from the end of a on old paint brush.
Some great Aussie handmade stuff to embellish:
Burdys embellies - Blue cogs
Rainbow Splendour - Wood Veneer pluses
Corbett Creations - Wood veneer little chick
Charms Creations - DIY plus, which I was able to colour with the Colour Blast paste mixed with some water. (Love the coloured effect it produced!)
Thanks for looking!
