Inspiration using red yellow and blue by Debs

Hi Everyone

Hope you are enjoying the challenge this month.  Such great colours!
Here is my latest piece of 'inspiration' for you 

I used a journal but this technique would work well on a card or on a canvas
I started by stamping some text using mini calligraphic mat 20 and calligraphic mat 11 with black archival

Then ripped up the text and stuck randomly onto the page and covered in white gesso

Next i added some grunge paste through the A4 Swirl Mask and then is started spraying

Nice and bright you might think!

This is exactly the same page after the ink has dried, dylusions reacts beautifully with gesso and immediately lightens the inks, giving you a much more subtle tone.

I stamped some of the shells from the Shells mat onto white tissue with brown archival and once glued in place i used a charcoal pencil to outline.  I then stamped inspiration from the Journaling words 3 mat

To finish i added a touch more gesso down the middle of the page

I shall look forward to looking through all of your project for this month and don't forget you still have a bit more time to still enter both on the blog or on the Facebook page
