Lindy's color challenge September 2018

Once again a little mixed media piece made for entering the Lindy's color challenge. I don't think I have ever made a tag before and this one wasn't going to be a tag at first, neither something to enter a challenge with. I just had a piece of scrap paper and an old dictionary. Since many crafters use books or book pages for their projects, so I thought I would try and see what I can achieve with these very thin book pages. I glued the papers on the scrap paper (I think it was an aquarelle paper), text turned vertically. I like how the text has different styles (bold, cursive and so on), it gave an extra effect to the background. I wanted the text to show partially, so I used very little white gesso (Ranger's Claudine Hellmuth studio gesso) and covered then with Prima's clear gesso.

When the gesso was drying, I started to think which colors to use. I had already put on display the magical powders meant to use for the color challenge, so I thought I'd try them …

Fairy birthday wishes to my sister

My latest card is a birthday card to my sister. I used papers from a Kaisercraft paper pad, the fairy is from the same pad. The front has two washi tapes, the leafy one and yellow zigzag behind the fairy. There is more washi tape inside the card. The Onnea (=congrats) word is made the same way as the Moikka word in my previous post. The chipboard was first gessoed and then colored with Tattered angels' Golden orange mist. Over that I added Scattered straw Distress glue and sprinkled over it some golden microbeads and microspheres. The branches are diecut with the Sizzix die. Unfortenately, I don't remember which colors I used to color it, except the golden orange, I used it to give the branches the same yellowish tone as on the word. 
For finishing touches I put glitter glue around the papers, sprinkled some microbeads and then glued a few glass domes.
