Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 20

Today is Day 20 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge.  This week is all about using the palette knife.

I've used a background created using Dylusion Spray Inks, using "Lemon Zest" and "Bubblegum Pink" colours.

Once dry, I used That's Crafty "Sand Texture Paste" through the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Tiny Poinisettia - THS163" stencil applied with a palette knife.  This really is a gritty texture paste, quite similar to cement in texture!

Once the texture past was dry, I inked the edges using "Charming Pink" Versafine Clair ink and then mounted the card on to a piece of navy blue coloured card.

I added some dots of orange and pink Posca Pens to the area between the flowers, then added dots of "Ruby Red" Liquid Pearls to the middle of the flowers.

Finally, I mounted a Tim Holtz, Idea-ology "Big Chat" word sticker on to a piece of navy blue card and stuck it in position using foam pads so the sentiment is more elevated.


  1. Love the sand texture paste Sam, I often use it for 'sand' in my mixed media projects/beach scenes x

  2. So bright and pretty Sam and the paste stencilled flowers with that gritty texture over the beautiful sprayed ink background look wonderful..love the bright red liquid pearls and the added Posca pen work which add lots of interest, and perfect on the navy card. x
