Guest Artist for December part 2!

Well hey there,
I am excited to be back with my second offering for my guest artist spot for December.!!
So for my second offering I have used some fab journalling stamps and fab flowers stamps from the Artistic Stamper, distress inks , some wendy vecchi arts parts and a collage frame, as well as some funky ideaology bits , from Tim and some perfect pearls mist.
So here it is:
I started with a collage frame, which I painted up using household emulsion and crackled, a fab effect, this was then coloured using distress inks.
To create the collage inside I drew the shape onto paper and divided to get range of shapes and sizes of squares and rectangles, which were then cut from grungepaper.
Each piece was then coloured using distress inks in various blue shades.
I then started with one piece at a time and added perfect pearls mist to some pieces and crackle paint to one, trying to compliment and contrast adjacent pieces.
I added journalling stamps, journalling words #1, from the artistic stamper to some pieces as a focal point.
I also used the fab swirls,splats and dots stamps, again from the artistic stamper to some of the elements and the dots background to other pieces.
Once the backgrounds were complete it was time to play!
The beautiful flower stamps ,flower power and flower blooms, from the artistic stamper were used to create the fab 3-d flowers out of grungepaper, which were coloured using distress inks and spritzed with perfect pearls mist in pearl.
The leaves were also made using grungepaper, coloured using distress ink in
peeled paint and then covered with dots background stamp.
The small flowers were made in the same way, all from artistic stamper flowers from flower power and flower blooms.
The flowers on the corner of the frame were stamped using the flowers stamp,cut from clearly for art film, a fab mouldable film that can be coloured, heated and then shaped.I coloured these flowers using alcohol inks.
I added some great wendy vecchi arts parts which were coloured and I added
rock candy to the leaves part.
To finish I added some ideaology washers, foliage and fasteners.The washers and fasteners make flower centres.

This has been great fun to make and I love the way the collage effect can be built up using any colours and stamps to suit any taste,
thanks again!!
see you later in the month for my last offering
have a fab inky day
