Twiddleybitz: Here Comes The Sun


If love challenges then head on over and check out some of the Twiddleybitz April challenges on the NING site HERE.

I have been inspired by the Page Maps sketch posted and this is what I came up with.

Can I just say, that my heart literally took flight when I spied this totally awesome Twiddleybitz Hot Air Balloon.  I had so much fun altering it and it went perfectly with some Kaiser Fine and Sunny papers and sticker elements.

The balloon was first coloured - I used water colour crayons for this.  I actually found that the colour was a bit dark for my liking.  So, rather than diluting with lots of water and risking the chippie going soggy, I inked over the top with white and then heat embossed it with some clear glitter powder.

Fine and Sunny sticker elements were then added to dress it up a little. 

The Twiddleybitz Round Doily Journalling Plaque that sits behind the photo was first inked yellow - I used  Prima Ingvild Bolme's Quick Dry Fluid Chalk Ink for this.  The frame was then heat embossed clear.
 Allison Ellis fine glitter was then added using the heat set powder.  

The Twiddleybitz Itty Bitty Alpha's were the perfect size for adding my title.
