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 

I hope you enjoyed seeing one of many ways
to use COLOUR ARTE products,

Thank  you COLOUR ARTE for an opportunity to
