Welcome to the Sakura Hobby Craft Blog Hop - Mixing Creativity with Crystal Lacquer. You should have arrived here from Susan Brown's blog - if not, be sure to head back to the Sakura Hobby Craft blog to start at the beginning.
There will be a great prize of three of the Terri Sproul Mixers for one lucky hopper - and one of the artists today will win a prize as well. To be eligible to win, you must leave a comment on the Sakura Blog, telling which project was your favorite (I'm hoping you will vote for mine - lol!)
This will be my last post as a member of the Sakura DT - and I must say I've had so much fun serving on this team. I'm sure the new team will have many fun and amazing projects to share with you! Today I created a page in my art journal. Let me just tell you, this page has some layers!
I painted the background with Creative Inspirations Paints in Evergreen, Aqua Marine, Royal Blue and Tanzanite. I stamped vintage typography with the Unity stamp - SheArt Print Texture. Next, I randomly brushed on some Sakura Crystal Lacquer and sprinkled Terri Sproul Gold Dust Mixer over it. This is so shiny it looks like real gold!
I stamped an embossed a heart from the January SMAK kit using Suzy West's Bay Area Blue embossing powder from Wow. I spritzed the entire page with Ranger Mists and then went back to stamping. I used the numbers background from the December SMAK kit. You can barely see these, but I love how they just add a little more depth to the page. I painted more of the Creative Inspirations Paints onto the Painted Punchinella stamp and randomly stamped that in open areas. I added a sentiment from the Donna + Unity = FABric Creations set. I let some Crystal Lacquer drip down my page, and I added more of the Gold Dust mixer. I then spritzed it again to help blend the whole page together.
The chipboard piece is from Dusty Attic. Again, I used the Gold Dust Mixer and Sakura Crystal Lacquer - but this time, I mixed them thoroughly together and painted it on. I rubbed the edges with the Creative Inspirations paints.
I hope you are enjoying the hop! Don't forget...if you want to have a chance to win the prize, you need to leave a comment on the Sakura Blog, telling which project is your favorite. Now it's time to hop on to Barbara Moore's blog.
