New Challenge at Country View Crafts

Hello everyone today is the 1st August can you believe how quick the year is going? On 8th of this month I will have been living in Carlisle for 6 months which feels amazing. I must be enjoying myself!

Well I certainly enjoyed creating a journal page for the new Challenge given to us by the lovely Corrie, who chose Blue and Green. There are loads of fabulous makes on the Country View Crafts blog by my very talented teamies to inspire you. Enter your creations to be in the draw to win £20 voucher to spend in store.

My page

Here's how I created this page

The background was created by smooching Distress Oxides in several shades of Blue and Green. This was spritzed
several times and then dried before I got the look I wanted.

Next I stamped my girl, from Beautiful You, a stamp by Rubber Dance designed by me, stocked by Country View Crafts.
I tilted her slightly as I wanted to create the effect she was whooshing through the air.

I sprinkled Infusions in Royal Blood, and Olive from Paper Artsy to added more depth to the background .

Once it was all dry, I worked on the face and hair, keeping to colour combo and using Inktense Pencils I painted her 
using  a watercolour effect. I also added some tiny flowers which also come in the set which I stamped in Chalk Fresco Acrylic by Paper Artsy

To finish using my white Gel Pen by Signo, (which is my absolute favourite) I added some dots. Then stamped my sentiment.

Sorry the colours change, it was different light once I'd finished.

Well that's it for today
