Imagine. Create. Enjoy.

Hello beautiful souls,

I had so much fun with this latest piece. I guess I have been kind of on a yellow kick too. I really dig the nice warm happy colors in this piece. I did a TON of layering and took a lot of pics to show the transformation. Let's dive in 

First off I started out with a nice variation of warm hues of: pinks, oranges, and yellows in water colors. I received the Arabian Nights series stencils and totally fell in LOVE!  For the first layer I used the "Celestial " stencil which is awesome because it also has a sacred geometry shape in in like "Square Rose".  

Next I did some layering with the"Shooting Stars" stencil. I used some nice purples and blues to simulate a nice sky look.

I even discovered something super cool with my hula hoop tape! I cut out some little dots with a paper punch I have. I used my heat gun and blasted then with some heat. The heat made rainbow colors appear!

Next I added some white sprays to create some opaque layers.

Then I kept adding on the layers.

I love how you can see the white spatters over the hula hoop tape dot! Here is a shot of the background before I started adding the 3D elements.

I love adding texture and 3D elements to my pieces so I used my cricut machine and cut out these BA flower of life shapes and these moroccan style stars.

I used my heat gun on the  Angelina Film to create the crinkles. Making crinkles in the film allows the light to really bounce all over the piece and create some gorgeous texture.

I call this piece "Inner Wisdom". I took so many photos to really capture all of the incredible design elements.

I was super excited my idea with layering texture paste and the Angelina film turned out. The crinkly film didn't let the texture paste lay super flat, but I used a mechanical pencil tip to remove the messy parts of the paste. I then painted the texture paste with water colors, and used some Viva Decor Inka Gold to add some pretty gold highlights.

Here is the finished piece in the sunlight.

I even took an Insta video to capture all of the details 

How do you like to use your Angelina Film? What ways do you add 3D elements to create depth and visual appeal

Love, light, and creativity,
