TCR # 129 Unveiled

Hello Tuesday!

Feels like yesterday I wrote my previous post, the whole weekend went by in the wink of an eye. So much happening at work at the moment, not much else to do but to go with the flow and remember to breathe.

As promised, this post will be about The Color Room's palette # 129. An interesting one with lots of different hues of green.

Here's my take - "Unveiled". This time the layers are made with stamping and misting/masking, with the exception of the area around the photo.

The background paper was originally a very subtle cream and white damask pattern and ended up looking like this.

The photo is not my own, I found it on internet. It was taken an autumn morning somewhere in Sweden, the sun dispersing the cobwebs of fairy fog and unveiling a landscape painted in flaming colours.

The small circles have been masked with matte gel medium, touched up with acrylic paint in gold, misted in Suede, and stamped.

A larger damask pattern was masked/inked and Joyce Lawrence's fun tea bag splatter was applied before more stamping. This time with mist to get a fuzzy pattern.

Washi tape, torn German lace scrap and paper strips.

A 100% Prima cluster.

I misted the darker greens on the tulle that I had scrunched up and used as a bed for the photo together with gauze misted in lime. Torn German lace scrap that was also misted.

More stamping with mist, the lime green script.

Here's an example of Joyce's tea bag splatter.

Et voilà! that's it!
