Blossum, Bloom, Grow

Hello, Deena here with you today.
Last months mixed media kit was designed by the super talented Fiona Paltridge, and I got to play with it. Included in the kit were the Faber-Castell colour fizz tablets. There are four different colours to play with but I only used three. I do still have some of each colour left to play with at another time.

Normally I would gesso my canvas before I start, but this time I didn't. Using my versamark (not in kit) I stamped the gorgeous prima floral stamp onto my canvas. Using white embossing powder (not included) I created a resist on the canvas. 

Close up view of the embossing as it is a little hard to see in the photo above, white on white is not great until you add colour then it comes alive.

I wet my canvas lightly and then placed the fizz tablet on to the canvas. I decided that it was better to put it on my messy mat and keep it wet that way and use a paint brush to add the colour.

This is the dried canvas, I put down a layer of colour and dried it with my heat gun. Once dried to add a little interest to the back ground using my brush I splash some colour.

Using the two smaller stamps and the cardstock provided I stamped the images and then again heat embossed with white.

 This next step is once of my favourite techniques. Fussy cutting, I find it really relaxing.
Once I finished fussy cutting I arranged my flowers onto the back ground and added the three words included in the kit.
