Do What You Heart by Rachel Dutko

Hi everyone

Today I have a bit of a 'selfie' layout to share. I've kept to my 'grungy' style, but added a few flowers and butterflies to juxtapose the 'messy' background.

To prep my page I added White Heavy Gesso to the top half of the page. I drew a line about a third of the page down with lead pencil as my 'horizon' to base my design around. My first layer of colour was to apply water-activated Midnight Colour Shimmer Dust and let it drip down the page.

I then collaged some 7 Dots Studio stickers and frames.

Next I applied some Envy, Steel and Fire Engine Colour Pastes through stencils, drying thoroughly between each colour.

I then added another layer of black, this time with Road Base Colour Spray  applied with a paintbrush for some drips and splatters.

I then added my embellishments, title and photo.

I coloured the heart of my wood veneer title with 
Fire Engine Colour Paste 
to bring some more texture and bring focus.

Thanks for looking

Rachel xx
