ColourArte Monthly Challenge #1

Welcome everyone 
Here is my submission to
ColourArte's Monthly Challenge #1

 I applied white gesso on an empty tea bottle
With matte medium gel I applied a piece of mesh net and sea shells
I then again applied more white gesso
I used  Colour Arte Silks 
Sapphire on Ice, Sunflower and Plumeria 
and blended some gesso as well to give it more dimension.and highlights
For my first layered little ship die I used Colour Arte Twinkling H2Os 
Pearl Blue, Pearl red and Pearl gold
and dabbed a little the same silks on the
 second layer of my ship and added dimension with form squares
I applied coarse texture gel. 
It has a grain sand like texture which was perfect for this project
I embedded loose pearls, sequins and sea bead which the medium was still wet

2015 Colour Arte Design Team Submission

Happy 4th of July

Today's post is my submission for

I couldn't help but pick up this 15 1/2 inch beauty

Steampunk is a style that I love so much so I pulled out
all the stops!
I sat down in front of the T,V, cranking away and watching the first season of
Orange is the New Black. I wanted to see what the fuss was about.  I can say that it has caught my attention. lol
I used dies from Cherry Lynn, Tim Holtz, Memory Box and Inspire by Spellbinder
I like to try to map out my layout prior to gluing down anything
I can say I merely a guide it changes as it goes
Now time to start adding texture
 I use a mixture of modge podge and clear gesso
I used laces, painters taps and Tim Holtz Music Sheet Tissue Paper
Here is dressform painted with the white gesso 
 and lightly brused with black gesso to give it that
grunged aged look 
Here is is the best part using all my beautiful Colour Arte Silks Acrylic
I used Ginger Peach, Teal Zircon, Sunflower, Sapphire on Ice, Sky Blue, Spicy Tomato 
 I love the way all the color blend in so smoothly 

I also added stickles to all the words 
Clear, White and Black Gesso
Tim Holtz - Dies Gears and Dragon Fly and Elements  Gears
Memory Box - La Rue Heart Craft

Colour Artre Silks
Ginger Peach, Teal Zircon, Sunflower, Sapphire on Ice, Sky Blue, Spicy Tomato
