Video using Colorburst and Maya Road chipboard shapes to create color magic

While cleaning out my studio, I found quite a few treasures that I have been saving. Please tell me I am not the only person who has accumulated too much stuff!  Well…I need to stop saving and use more of them and I will thanks to Ken Oliver.  He shared the perfect idea – to use chipboard shapes with Colorburts!  I love these windows from Maya Road, but I haven’t used them…until today!

Watch Colorburst and chipboard tutorial on YouTube.

What will I do with these? They are definitely calling to me as buildings but I never know where it will end up.  Of course, I’ll share whatever they become.

A close up of the speckling that happens when the water hits the powder. Magic!

Collage Paint Draw by Sue PelletierSue Pelletier has created a fabulous book full of inspiring eye candy in a rainbow of happy colors!  Now, I might be biased…but not because she used one of my stencils (which is loaded with texture and text joy on p. 17) but because she is an encourager of creativity with a laugh out loud sense of fun!

It didn’t take me long to figure you what I wanted to play with first from her book…I had to get loose with a pipette and India ink!

I started with a background of spray ink smears that I found in one of my journals.  It is might yucky all on its own…but it won’t be for long!

Drawing stars all over the page with India ink.  It was so much fun, I just couldn’t stop!
