Welcome to Happy Saturday. Where the colors of Autumn are just making their way into some parts of the world!! Because we dont have those blazing Autumnal colors in Florida where I live, I bring them to life in my work. And Splash Of Color allows me to do that with their gorgeous array of colors in their products!!!
Today, I wanted to concentrate on Viva Colour Inka Gold Metallic Rub. It is a wonderful product that can be used in a couple of ways. For this layout, I chose to spritz the pot with a little water and use it as a finger paint rubbing it all over the die cut flowers and Chip board.
Here is a closeup of the chip board that I finger painted using the Viva Colour Metallic rub in Lava Red. Inky fingers are wonderful with this product!! Once the rub was dry, within minutes, I used a Viva Colour Pearl Pen in Gold Pearl to create a little texture on the chipboard defining a flower here and there.
Here is a closeup of the flowers that I created. I used a red based pattern paper, rubbed the Viva Colour Metallic Rub in Lava Red on the petals, wrinkled them a bit, then lightly kissed them with Viva Colour Metallic Rub Base Coat in Gold and layered them and topped them off with a pearl that was also rubbed with the same metallic Rub.
The stamen that was punched from paper were also colored with the Viva Metallic Rub Base Coat in Gold.
The backround doily was also coored with Viva Colour Inka Gold Metallic Rub in Green. All the while I am finger painting.
I also dotted the punched border with some Viva Colour Pearl Pen in Gold Pearl.
I did manage to sneak in a bit of Luminarte Silks acrylic glaze on this layout. I painted the butterflies in Apricot Nectar, Sunflower, Sunburst, and Yellow Rose. The silks make it so easy to blend the colors one into the other. I did rub in a bit of the lava red metallic rub on the wings. Just to tie it into the rest of the layout.
Thank you for coming to visit the blog today. I hope you have been inspired to break out those Metallic rubs and get a little inky!!
