Vintage Blue Happiness

Remember yesterday
I mentioned working on a new background? Here is how it started out...

Swirls of water soluble 
wax crayons in three shades of blue.

Blending with a baby wipe.

Adding Glitz Vintage
Blue paper torn in strips... painting over and wiping off excess with a clean baby wipe.
Some stamping...
then a coat of white wash (I use watered down white craft paint).
Some ink misting using a stencil completed this background... now for some more fun!

I used the Vintage Blue
6x6 paper pad and Whatnots, some vintage buttons, old dictionary paper and a tag.

Spellbinders Foliage die,
Alterations Mini Hearts Set, Vintage Photo and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks, Meadow Green
and Patina Glimmer Mist

Happiness in a journal!

Thanks for stopping by!
