Gonna catch all the fish

My quote this week was ‘Gonna catch all the fish’ from the song ‘Catch all the fish’ by Brad Paisley


For the base of my  background I sprayed it with a blue dylusions spray. I then put my deco art glitter paste on a piece of tissue and rubbed it into the background to create a glittery effect all over both of the pages. I then used white modelling paste through a flower stencil to create texture. Once that had all dried I stamped over the background with a starfish stamp from a Viva decor seaside stamp set and then used a star stamp from Tim Holtz and a star stamp from an Art C stamp set using my archival black ink.


For my main page I drew three fish on a piece of watercolor paper. I then colored them in with my aqua spectrum watercolor pens, all in different shades of pinks, purples and oranges. I then used my heat gun on the watercolor to create a dried effect. Once they had dried I outlined them in graphix black pen and drew wave patterns on their body. I then glued on sequins on certain parts of their body and colored in the waves with staedtler  markers. I then used my American crafts metallic gold pen and my signo white gel pen to put dots all over the fish. Then I used my art C stamp set star to stamp over the sequins with black archival ink. I then took another piece of watercolor paper and colored it with my aqua spectrum watercolor pens in different shades of pink. I then drew out eleven bubbles and stamped stars on the bubbles individually and highlighted them with my signo white gel pen. I positioned four of them on my main page around my fish and saved the other seven for my other page.


For my quote page I drew a jellyfish on a piece of watercolor paper and colored it in my with aqua spectrum watercolor pens. I then decorated all of it with sequins and once they had been glued on I stamped over it with the star stamp from my Art C stamp set using black archival ink. For my quote I cut out a piece of watercolor paper and cut off the edges too it, I covered it in a sparkly tissue paper and once it was glued on stamped music notes over it with my american crafts music stamp using archival ink. For the quote I then colored another piece of watercolor paper with orange colors, stamping down the quote with my dovecraft letter stamps using archival ink. I then cut out the words individually and bordered them with the side of my black archival ink. I stuck the quote down and then stamped some of the Art C stars around the quote. With the remaining seven bubbles I positioned them all around the page.

As a finishing touch I cut out butterflies with my butterfly paper cutter from scrapbook paper and stuck them over both of my pages.
