Creative Expressions DT call challenge.... Texture

Creative Expressions has a design team call out, they've given us a challenge to make something with stamping and texture. What a great excuse to get my mini art journal out and get messy....hang I need an excuse??

 The ship has 3D sails
          I love the texture of the tissue with the highlights of gesso and paint from Adirondack dabbers.
              You can just see the perfect pearls mica powders on the letters shining in the lamp light too.

Before I coloured the page I pushed some gesso through a stencil with small circles and allowed it to dry. I then sprayed some blue Cosmic Shimmer and Adirondack colour wash on the page. I squirted some water and allowed it to run off leaving streaks. I scrunched up some blue tissue and stuck it down with pva glue to make the 3D waves. 

I used the quote, ship, ships wheel, telescope and the birds from the Weigh Anchor stamp set by Creative Expressions on the pages. The quote reads "If my ship sails from sight it doesn't mean my journey ends, it simply means the river bends"

                                                   I used a charcoal pencil around the quote.

I'm also entering this into Try it on Tuesday's Travel theme.
Oh how I'd like to sail away to somewhere warm,......but not on my rough waves!
Till next time x


Oh I nearly forgot a Felix update.
He's decided to join neighbourhood watch!
 Any noise and he's straight up on the windowsill, shoving his head through the blinds.
He's growing so fast...(it's all that sleep). He went for his second set of vaccines today, 
so he'll be able to go out soon and start a new adventure of discovery.
