This week on Summer of Creative Chemistry the challenge was to use two of Tim's stenciling techniques from Creative Chemistry 102.
I chose the "Mixed Media Technique" for my background and the "Stencil Stamping Technique" to add texture to my flower petals.
This page was inspired by one of our church's songs we sang last Sunday. It was stuck in my head the whole time I was creating my page. It is called "Oh We Look To The Son" by Hillsong Worship. You can listen to it here. It's awesome!
I used Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough, Mermaid Lagoon, Rusty Hinge and Fossilized Amber Distress Inks and Paints.
The stencils I used in my background were Measured, Burlap, Harlequin, Dot Fade, Bubble and Stripes.
I created my own stencil for the flowers. I used the Crackle stencil with Tim's "Stencil Stamping Technique" to add some texture to my petals. Shading was added around the petals background with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Crayon and around the flower centre with Rusty Hinge Distress Crayon. I added a highlight to the flower centres using Picket Fence Distress Paint.
I used the Rays stencil and Metallic Gold Embossing Paste to create my sun rays.
I used the Evergreen Bough Distress Marker to create veins in my leaves. I also used the Peacock Feathers Distress Crayon for shading around my leaves and stems.
I coloured some seam binding with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink (tutorial here), and tied it around my stems.
I used a lettering stencil and the Black Pentel Gel Roller For Fabric Pen for my words.
I really enjoyed singing my way through creating this page. It was so much fun.
