Stuck! February 1st Reveal Challenge Entry

Hi Everyone,

Here is the February 1st Reveal sketch from Stuck:


And here is my entry:



Here are some close ups: 






I really twisted this sketch up, although I kept the general idea of it. To create this page I started with a gesso-ed background (I always have a few of these at hand. I tend to create a few when my mojo is at a low or late at night when I can't sleep), and then glued the die-cut book paper and die-cut shapes to the page with matte gel medium. While that was drying I chose the papers to go with my photo. These papers are the new Polly Scraps main kit: Passionfruit Souffl√©. I love this kit, the colors are great. I then cut what I needed to size. The vellum in the background is a left-over piece from my LSS Stamp Crafts Mount Bundy Retreat last year (I made little bags for each person attending). With the first layer dry I scrapped gesso over the entire page. When this was dry I added the initial color  by spraying onto the plastic sleeve my kit ce in and then flipped and spread over my page with my hands. When this was dry, I spritz spray at in rivals along the top and allowed it to run down the page. I let this bit dry naturally as it creates better light and shade in the runs. I then worked out where my cluster was going and then used my gelatos to color in feature pieces of my background. I then completed my page.

See you all again soon.

Love
Michelle
