I decided to go for the skateboard photos. Not something he has mastered yet, but he is trying.

March 15th Feature @ WOW

We have shaken things up over at the WOW Blog and decided each month we will choose a Design Team favourite New Release piece to feature on the 15th of each month.

Our first favourite New Release is the Industrial pieces, sold individually and in a fabulous pack


I decided to go for the water pipe look. Each piece has been heavily embossed with white and gold, I then added some Stickles and watercolour paint in blue to give it some finishing touches.

The 'Heart This' oval from the New Release Love This Pack was also embossed with white and clear powder.

The arrows from the New Release Tribal Arrow pack were covered with gesso first, then paint with orange watercolour paint and the final layer of clear embossing powder.

I've added a few older pieces, the whale border from the Nautical Mini Borders, simply inked with charcoal and then the wave was highlighted with a blue metallic gel pen and inked a few clouds from the Mini Clouds Pack in white and then added a layer of Dimensional Magic.

Here is the finished page. I had loads of fun creating the background, making a mess along the way.
