Prima February BAP

This month's Prima BAP is an incredibly cool sketch by the talented Keren Tamir. I was really intrigued by the crisscrossing lines, and how to execute those. Here's what I came up with.

I solved the crisscrossing lines dilemma by executing the lines in two different ways - for the upper line I used washi tape, lace trim, corrugated cardboard and two torn strips of paper to mirror the line on the bottom, and for the centre line, I traced the existing delineation on the "Timeless" paper from the Timeless Memories collection using Worn Leather and Tea Stain Color Bloom sprays for a subtle line.

For the background, I added stencilling with the Rock Wall stencil and modelling paste, then added some shading with Chalk Edgers, added some stamping, and outlined the rocks with a watercolor pencil.

The Manor Hinges chippies are from Blue Fern Studios; I covered them liberally with Copper Crackle Texture Paste and left it to dry, then added Deep Teal Color Bloom spray, dabbing it off the top and letting it settle in the cracks for an aged look.

These gorgeous Prima blooms complement the amazing earth tones and texture of the Timeless Memories collection.

For a pop of colour, I finished it off with a chipboard title from Blue Fern Studios primed with gesso and painted with Color Bloom spray in Cobalt, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Here is the inspiration sketch:
