Finding your Mojo with Suzi

Good Day All, Today it's my pleasure to share my latest project with you.  I have to admit my crafting mojo has been absent recently, so I had to find a way to give it a jump start, not always the easiest thing to do, but here's how I did it.

Our theme this month is 'Paint, Paint, Paint', so the first thing I did was grab some Eco Acrylic Paints to play with, I chose Turquoise, Magenta, Leaf Green and Cadmium Yellow.  Did you know that the Eco Acrylic Paint are mixable, so you can create some amazing colours I mixed the Leaf Green and Cadmium Yellow to create a lovely Lime Green for my project.

I then took 2 Index Cards and 2 tags that I'd already primed with some White Gesso.  I grabbed my paints and started to add some to my cards using my fingers.

Next I added some stamping using a selection of stamps from my stash.

I then decided I wanted to add some texture to my project, so I took Natural ExpandIt Paste and mixed it with some Turquoise Eco Acrylic Paint, and applied it to my cards with a syringe.  I left it to dry for a little while before heat setting with my heat gun.  I took some Gold Metallic Acrylic Paint and added that to areas on my cards this time with a brush. 

Looking at my cards I decided they needed some more contrast, so I mixed up some Prussian Blue and Payne's Grey Eco Acrylic Paint and used that to add some dark areas to my cards. I also added more Gold Metallic Paint.

To embellish my cards I added some coloured jute ribbon, staples and gems.  Here's my finished cards;

Creating these cards really did give my mojo a kick start, just playing with colours and textures was great fun.  I love how well the Eco Acrylic Paints mix together, it's a lot of fun to see what new colours you can create, just doing that really got my mojo going.  I love the mix of Prussian Blue and Payne's Grey and can't wait to see what that looks like with some other colour combinations.

I hope you've enjoyed see how I created these cards and tags.  We'd love to see what you've created using ColourCraft products; Have you joined the Create with ColourCraft Facebook Group yet?
