A is for Air Brush

Hi, my dear blog friends. hope you all enjoyed your weekend. We had such a fun Anything Goes challenge last week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and I was impressed by all your great creativity and beautiful projects.

This week, we are having an alphabet inspired challenge. "A is for ? " Will you use product from American Crafts? Create a whole album? An Assemblage? Use Adhesives in a special way? Whatever your take – this week we are all about the letter A.

I was inspired to create the background patterns on a scrapbook layout using an Air Brush system by Copic Marker.  In the picture of this layout, Natalie was so happy holding two big sweet strawberries which was her favorite fruit.


I had so much fun when the first time I played with Copic Marker Air Brush System last year in the Copic Certification class. Since then I love to use it to create the grafitti effect on my art journal pages.

This week I decided to use the Air Brush System, Copic Markers, and Heidi Swapp Heart Cluster Stencil to create the background pattern on this layout.


After spraying the Color Shine over the stencil, I used art daubers to apply the pigment inks on those hearts. I then traced the outline of those hearts with American Crafts Precision Marker.



To make the dimension on these hearts, I used the air brush to apply different shades of Copic Markers. 


I just love the gorgeous Prima Flowers and the Say It in Crystals gems. 


Keep layering the patterned papers and embellishments to make my layout more interesting.
