New challenge in only 30 mins

Hello everyone, thanks for popping in! Today being the first day of the month sees a new challenge start at Country View Crafts and it's a fab one chosen for us by the fabulously Talented Sue. Make something in 30mins!

All your entries entitle you to be in the draw to win £20 to spend in the shop plus Sue will pick her favs. So come on don't be shy set your timer and go!

For my inspiration I chose to work in my small journal!


Here's what I did, I'll provide a list at the bottom of materials used.

I knew I wanted to get sticking so I gathered all my supplies and set my timer, I forgot to screen capture the start and finish times
But trust me I stuck to my limit! 

So everything got stuck down with Matt medium and painted over with White. Wasn't sure where I was going here as although I knew I was doing a 
Journal page I hadn't a clue at this stage what it would be. I love all the different textures you can see below!

Still not knowing where I was going I add some infusions in my fav colour Violet Storm. I loved the effect, you can see more below!


Then for some unknown reason I grabbed the spray paints and sprayed it Pink

I loved how the Infusions darkened the pink giving different values to the piece and creating some depth. 

I knew now it had to be one of these fabulous girls which I painted with watercolours and added shading with Pencils 

Added my sentiment and time was up. I had 3 mins spare so not bad! Let's take a last look.
