Here is this week's Muse by Vicki Dutcher:
I began with the main panel. I followed the instructions for marbling that Jennifer McGuire has created a great tutorial.
I filled a small rectangular glass tub an inch with water. I dropped about 6 drops of Alcohol ink (5 Mermaid, 1 Indigo) I lightly swirled. I did this with about 5 different pieces of paper. I wanted to have options and use a piece from another panel for the background for the sentiment.
Here are my others panels. I am planning on saving them for later projects:
While the paper dried, I cut out 2 stitched circles and lightly colored 1 with a variety of blue and green watercolor pencils. I used the Aqua Painter to wet the paper and blend the colors. I cut the bottom of the other circle to make a snowy mound for the penguins to stand on. I colored the snow hill in with the Snow Marker and heat set so it puffs up like snow.
Here's a close up of the snowy mound:
Next, I stamped the Penguins, used Colored pencils and the aqua painter to color them in. After everything dried, I sandwiched the papers between copy paper and ran through my Big Shot to flatten. I cut the sparkle paper to fit along the side and used Tear tape to adhere it to the panel. I put together my snowy penguins on top of the snow hill and attached the circle using dimensionals. I used a scrap of the Marble paper to stamp the sentiment on. The last step I added some clear sparkly Nuvo dots and "painted" the snow with Wink of Stella.
