You Are Awesome - OUAS


I had some creative playtime the other day so I created this page for the on-going OUAS challenge. I used the sketch provided and theme which was "lucky". My journaling is written underneath the title and it's about how awesome I think my first born is and lucky I am to be able to call myself her mom. 

I used gesso, mesh tape, masking tape and mists together with some stamps and stenciling for the background. I first added the tapes and then stamped with black ink and then toned the harsh black down by adding the gesso on top. Then I misted a chevron pattern and added some splashes of ink to the background. On top I layered the patterned papers and made some patterned paper washers as embellishments.

Have a great Thursday! There's still a few days time to take part in the raffle (link)!


Minulla oli tovi sitten aikaa leikkiä, joten tein sivun tämän hetkiseen OUAS-haasteeseen. Käytin haasteen luonnosta sekä teemaa "onnekas". Tarinointini on otsikon alapuolella ja kertoo, miten esikoiseni on mainio tapaus ja miten olen onnekas saadessani sanoa olevani hänen äitinsä. 

Käytin taustaan gessoa, verkkoteippiä, maalarinteippiä ja mistejä yhdessä leimojen ja sabluunan kanssa. Lisäsin ensin taustaan teipit ja sitten leimailin mustalla. Tasoittaakseni vahvaa kontrastia lisäsin teippien ja leimojen päälle hieman gessoa ja sitten mistailin siksak-kuvion. Lopuksi lisäilin lyijykynäriipustelua ja mistiroiskeita. Päälle kerrostelin kuviopaperit ja koristeet. Tein myös kuviopaperista pieniä "vahvikeympyröitä" koristeiksi. 

Mukavaa torstaita! Vielä on aikaa osallistua arvontaan (linkki)!
