joy....a ColourArte tutorial 37

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, May 19, 2015 @ 8:20 AM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! Now that we are nearly settled in our new home, I have more time to create so I made a colorful and dimensional project to share featuring a variety of ColourArte products including several of the newly released products: Silks Acrylic Glaze:Apple BlossomPlum Blossom and Radiant rain Shimmering Mistapple blossom along with many other fabulous ColourArte products listed below.
I combined the colorful ColourArte products with a variety of flowers, a Gina's Designs chipboard dressform and lots of texture:
 I love the elegant Gina's Designs chipboard dressform so much, that I couldn't resist creating another project featuring the pretty piece again. In case you missed my previous project, click here: 
I altered the chipboard piece using Silks Acrylic Glaze Silver Bells and chunky embossing enamel then for a touch of elegance, I embellished with a pearl necklace and fluffy feather:
 For the sentiment, I used a Spellbinders bezel filled with chunky glass glitter and Ice Resin. 
The skirt was made using flowers from my stash and were colored using the following ColourArte productsSilks Acrylic GlazeWisteriaPink GrapefruitSolar GoldApple BlossomPlum BlossomSilver BellsRadiant rain Shimmering Mistapple blossompeach fuzzplumeria:

Here are several steps I took along the way sharing my creative process: 
Once canvas was prepped with Gesso, collaged tissue paper and modeling paste for texture, I randomly applied Silks Acrylic GlazeWisteriaPink GrapefruitSolar GoldApple BlossomPlum BlossomRadiant rain Shimmering Mistapple blossompeach fuzzplumeria. Layering and layering until the desired look was achieved:
Once background was created, I applied the chipboard piece and flowers then randomly applied Silks Acrylic GlazeWisteriaPink GrapefruitSolar GoldApple BlossomPlum Blossom:
For added depth and dimension, I applied Radiant rain Shimmering Mistapple blossom and plumeria:
For the final touch, I randomly applied Silks Acrylic Glaze Solar Gold and splattered with white acrylic paint:
I'm joining along with the current Artist Trading Post challenge where the theme is to use an object found in nature ~ feather ~ and one product from the ATP store ~ Ice Resin.
For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Words & Paintery challenge:
Many thanks for visiting ~ I hope you enjoyed my project! I'll be back Thursday for an all new ColourArte project to share!

Be Sweet ;)

Stunning creation as usual Mona:) I was looking to purchase some of those dress forms at Gina's store but there isn't the same type you used. I wonder if it was discontinued??? That would be a shame cause it is gorgeous!

WOW this is one of a kind spectacular!!!

Caroline said...

This is gorgeous! So pretty but with texture, dimension & strong colour pops amongst the tones. The body of dress is beautiful (& I don't do glitter, dresses or girly. You get the compliment, I hope?)
Wish we had some of shops you have in USA. However you have perhaps persuaded me to try Radiant Rains (I was dubious). Tfs. C
