Life.Paper.Scrapbook February Mood Board Challenge Entry

Hi Everyone,

Here is the Life.Paper.Scrapbook February Mood Board:

And here is my entry:

Here is a close up:  

The inspiration came from an online class I'm taking at the moment called Pop and Colors. To create this page I started by gesso-ing parts of the base cardstock. Next I added water soluble oil pastel and gelatos and then rubbed them to blend them together. I then added strips of washi tape. After that dried I held the page so that one short side was to the top and sprayed spray ink onto the gesso-ed area and let it run down. I kept going until I was happy with the result. I repeated with the second side. After that had dried naturally (I really wanted the concentration of color). I then cut a circle shape as a template and used painters low tack tape to hold a stencil in place and added embossing paste, then the embossing powder over the top and setting with the heat gun. I then added all the splatters. When that was dry I finished my page.   

See you all again soon.
