    Step 1

    Add a few drops of Velvet Lagoon, Potobello and Sorbet Dazzle Dimensional paints over Gel printing plate.

    Step 2

    Spread the paints over the Gel plate with roller.

    Step 3

    Make the first monoprint using a very thick white Mixed Media cardstock.

    Step 4

    Repeat step 1 with two more colors: Frost Sorbet and Red Velvet Sorbet by adding some drops of the paints over the Gel Plate.

    Step 5

    Spread two colors with a roller.

    Step 6

    Cover the Gel plate with two Art Anthology Bubbles and Retro stencils as shown. Not much or close to zero will be seen after all on the finished project, but it adds a bit of texture.

    Step 7

    Take the monoprint of red and white with stencils over the same print from the previous step.

    Step 8

    Mute the color brightness with a bit of liquid white gesso.

    Step 9

    Mist the whole piece with Art Anthology Warm Colorations Spray and let it dry.

    Step 10

    Spread a thick layer of Pixie Sorbet Dimensional paint with your palette knife in the middle of the page.

    Step 11

    Use a simple plastic paint comb to spread the paint as shown over the page.

    Step 12

    Add more of Pixie paint to make the sky like texture. Add Portobello paint in the middle to look like mountains. Dry with your heat gun to get the bubbles and the texture.

    Step 13

    This is how it looks after the heat gun " treatment"

    Step 14

    Stamp leaves, trees, fence and whatever you feel and have over white tissue with black pemanent ink and glue it to the page with gel medium under and over the image. Build a scene with your stamps.

    Step 15

    This is how it looks after more stamped over tissue images were added to the page. Stamp clouds over the textured paint on the top and waves on the bottom directly over the page.

    Step 16

    Add colors with Art Anthology Colorations Sprays in Glorious, Avocado and Grass colors. Let the page be dry before you add color unless you want it to be a mess!

    Step 17

    Add a bit of Baby Blue Eyes Sorbet paint as shown to make some " watery" spots over the page.

    Step 18

    Stamps the sentiment in the same way as images and glue them as shown. Draw a few birds with black pen and make some white pen highlights.Draw some white pen circles with AA Bubbles stencil.

    Step 19

    This is your finished art page! Enjoy!

    Step 20

    Take another look at the texture!

    Step 21

    Dont' wait for the perfect moment! Take the moment and make it PERFECT!
