Imaginarium Blog Hop challenge

Its all about celebrating that
extraordinary someone, something, experience or event!
see details below 

Adore My Girl
By Sue Smyth

My contribution to the sketch blog hop is this layout, filled with 
chip and soft colour and a few tricks which I am sharing below.

I love to cluster items together. Here are some altered flowers chip and gorgeous 
tassel, my favourite thing this year.
The chip feather I have inked with archival ink. Then flick 
white dylusions or you white paint pen over the top
add details with white paint pen. 
Spray gloss krystal cote over the top, sometimes
this will alter the colour of the white, which I quite like,this time
it has picked up the purple base of the black ink.

The gorgeous flowers are altered with spray inks. The azalea
I have misted with water, and simply added purple spray mist with
a small pipette only to the centre. The wet flower will
wick out the colour, and in this case the pigments will separate 
the blue in the flower is purely accidental and the pigments of the spray 
separating out. 
The other flower I have sprayed and dried off. Once dry
draw lines on the petals with a white paint pen and dots around
the centre, add a large adhesive pearl for effect.

For my flourish this time I have painted with gesso first. Then coat
with dimensional magic, and sprinkle with micro beads, any colour.
Allow to dry and paint with gesso again, nice and finely no clumps please.
When dry spray with Lindys stamp gang green mists, I like to mix 
the greens. Allow to dry again and sponge
onto the tips with Worn lipstick Distress ink! for a 
soft look to the ends of the tendrils.

The lovely pleated paper adds structure to the layout. Simply
trim cardstock to about 3  or 4 cms. Wet with water and 
pleat with your fingers. Dry with heat gun, manipulating with 
your fingers as you do.
I have randomly brushed with gesso, and sometimes I even
sew down the centre of the pleated paper for added stability

Happy Crafting 

Okay so here is the...
Its all about celebrating that
extraordinary someone, something, experience or event!

Or alternatively you could include the phrase 'ONE OF A KIND' in your title work, journaling and or quote.
