Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 71

Today is Day 71 of Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge.  It's the start of a new week of prompts, this week is "crayons".Crayons are not my usual choice of colouring product, so I'm a little out of my comfort zone with this prompt.

I found a sheet of dark blue paper with quite a shimmer to it.  Not pearlescent, but very close, so I decided to use that as the base.  I used three metallic shades of crayons (silver, gold and bronze) to draw wavy lines across the dark blue paper.

I lay the Clarity Stamps "Leafy Strip Stencil" over the top and secured with low tack tape.  I mixed a spritz of Dylusion "Fresh Lime" ink spray with some Ranger "Opaque Crackle Texture Paste'.  Once mixed together it had a look of pistachio.   I used a palette knife to apply the mixture over and through the stencil.  I lifted the stencil and cleaned it immediately so that the paste didn't dry on it. Then used a heat gun to accelerate the crackling of the surface of the leaf.

I mounted the paper on to a piece of navy card and then on to a piece of green card. Finally, I added a Clarity Stamp "Word Sticker" saying "Dreams come true".


  1. The leaf stencil with the spray colour added to crackle texture paste really works well to give that pretty cracked look to the beautiful leaf Sam, and the waves of metallic crayons in the background over the dark background looks great, and some nice words to finish too. x
