Hi, friends, it’s Chark here today to introduce our Guest Designer for the month of December, Mary Polanco. I first found Mary’s work on YouTube where she does great videos that are well-paced, inspiring and full of beautiful projects. When I asked if she’d be our December Guest Designer, she agreed and went above and beyond our expectations with her projects using our digital-of-the-month, Birthday Bash. There’s even a video for you to watch! Here’s Mary with her instructions…enjoy!
I started with my background, using some Canson XL watercolor paper. I used Distress Oxide in Iced Spruce, Seedless Preserves, and Worn Lipstick, and sponged it on first. Then I watered it down with my Ranger Mister to fully mix the colors. I heat set it with my heat tool and then finished it off with some of this fantastic black Smooth Spritz. I love the look of the black shimmery paint splatters on top of these colors.
I hope you enjoyed this project as I had so much fun working with these digital images. Until next time, Happy Crafting everyone!
