Hello everyone, Richard here!
I’m so excited to create Spring into Summer projects with you. Explore the new Trends Mini Catalog for great stuff. Today, I wanted to take you through a project I demonstrated during the RG Presents: Spring into Summer live event. Create a scene. Let your pelican sit near the ocean by creating this fun wave design.
You’ll need the following supplies: Hello Pelican Stamp AT-0237| Journey Ovals Die| Journey Circles Die| Corrugated Stock ST-0124| Whip Cream Cardstock CS-0040| Pool Play Cardstock| Pool Play Ink Pad| Beach Breeze Ink Pad| Catalina Splash Ink Pad| Black Licorice Ink Pad IP-0041| Journey Color Burst pencils| Journey Sparkle Cuts| Whip Cream Sparkle Tape| Nature Buttons AC-0227| Gold Journey Thread AC-0204| Journey Glaze AD-0003| Brush Gold Staples|
Step 1: Grab a Whip Cream Cardstock panel. Take a light color Ink Pad, like Pool Play to start the wave. Place the Ink Pad directly on the cardstock and move your Ink Pad up and down. Keep it slow and steady like a heartbeat. You may want to practice this on a scratch sheet first. You’ll get the hang of it.
Step 2: Repeat this with a slightly darker color Ink Pad, like Beach Breeze.
Step 3: Finish with your darker tone. Add the darker Catalina Splash on both edges of your cardstock. You will brush the Ink Pad on your panel while keeping half of the Ink Pad on your grid paper. Once you are done you may choose to re-touch the waves with a bit more light colored shadows using Pool Play. Don’t worry if yours doesn’t come out exactly like the featured image. Play with it until it fits your project.
Step 4: The different tones of blue really make your ocean come to life. Your pelican stands on the sand (Corrugated Stock); surrounded by seashells (Nature Buttons), ready to take off. Finish assembling your project and share it with us on social media.
Enjoy the Journey,
