Hello everyone! I'm back today to share my take on the Prima BAP!!
I've been dying to get this challenge done so that I can get my Prima
Design Team call application blog post done, but I got sick at the
beginning of the month for 10 days then we had plans to go away to
my daughter's graduation in another town for a week so time ran away!!!
I really enjoyed this sketch & found it very versatile & open-ended.
I'm also really happy with how my layout turned out.
I started with paper from the Coffee Break Collection, along with the Bubble
mask & some Prima modeling paste. I was inspired by my daughter's
mood straight after graduating - she was on Cloud 9 & walking on air -
which is why I chose the bubbles stencil :)
I dried it off then used several colours of color-bloom sprays individually
in different areas, then manipulated my paper while it was wet, to get
the drips & marbling effect which I think looks very nice & interesting.
I used various flowers & a flower vine that I cut into several pieces,
along with a brad from the Seashore collection & some Prima craft wire.
I used a fine black pen to circle the bubbles. I've noticed a lot of people
doing ink work & doodles these days & really love the artsy look it gives!
I used some of the printed chipboard die-cuts from the Seashore Collection,
in a metaphorical way, to show my daughter's journey at university - to
completion - The Harbour! Meaning that now her university journey is over.
I added a happy little boat heading off now to 'Treasure Valley'
which signifies a positive future for her now we hope!
I added a touch of greenery to tie in with the photo
& symbolise the lushness of a productive & fertile future.
A touch of hand-journaling at the end always gives a personal touch!
Thank you for your visit today & all your support on my last couple
of posts!! I noticed some great figures in my Google Analytics xx
