Positive Affirmations with Ewelina

Hey, arty people! It's time to share my second instalment for the August collab between Colourcraft C&A Ltd and Crafty Roo Designs - a positive affirmations canvas.

I started by building the first layer of texture using two Crafty Roo stamps - Code and Harlequin.

The second layer was to add a mandala design - texture paste through a stencil.

Now it's colour time. I started from the outer circle and worked my way in.
First red, then turquoise, finished with Lime green and SprinkleIT.
I dried each layer of colour before adding the next one.

Make sure that you allow enough time to completely dry SprinkleIT - you can see the difference between the wet and completely dry product in the first and second pic above.
Now all you need to do is keep adding Brusho and water until you achieve the desired depth of colour. If you think you've gone too far, spray some water over it and dab it out with a paper towel - this will remove excess pigment and lighten up the shade.

To finish, I used one of the phrases from the April 2018 Monthly Make Stamps Only kit - I embossed it using bright green Ranger powders to contrast with the pink/red background.
I also drew a frame using a white pen.

And that's it! My bright positive affirmation mandala is ready to be displayed on one of the widows in my kitchen - you know, to keep me going while I'm washing the dishes...

Don't forget to visit our shop and grab some last minute August bargains!!!

Take care!
