Technique Twist Challenge; Bubbles Background

It's another Saturday and for this week Technique Twist challenge, its all about bubbles... Check out the blog in how to get this done... Here is what I've done as part of the design team, using IndigoBlu bubbles background stamp for this mix media project...

I've always love Ingvild Bolme's designs and I've quite a number of her Junkyard Findings collection which I always wanted to create a more junky shabby 3D art... As I'd like to have more dimensions, I actually did this layout on a 12 X 12 canvas... I wanted to have this abstract art with a variety of mixed elements but keeping to aqua and teal clean finishes... I started by creating some cracks texture at the corners using some modeling paste, and painted over them with various mediums... Did some splashes and splattering to go with the bubbles background... Thanks to my hubby, whom had helped me to create a T-bone line to hang the frame down...

Altered those floral chipboards and used a terracotta mini pot as well...

My Goodness Katie you are quite the collage artist. So many interesting aspects and the closeups of the bubbles and all the color layering. Always such interesting elements used in your projects, thanks for highlighting the Bubble Technique!
