Color your world #3

 Hello dear friends!
  Today I'm sharring the third project of the trilogy 'Color Your World' I decided to do this month for Lindy's Stamp Gang.
(Here you can see #1 project and #2 project)
This idea came to me because of the April's color pallet which has all these amazing bright colors.
So here it is:

This time I wanted to make a retro style project on a A4 canvas. I chose a black and white photo with a ballerina holding an umbrella and from that umbrella I got the idea to make colored rain.
First I applied some Prima Art Basics  light paste with a mask, I spread some Geranium Coral Bluch embossing powder directly on it and heat it with the heat gun. Then, I got a charcoal and made some shading here and there on the page. 
After that, I glued the photo on the canvas and with my drawing pencil I drew on the canvas the tips of the shoes and umbrella which are missing of the photo. I also drew some lines on the left side to expand the wall of the photo onto the canvas. The last thing to do was some stamping on the photo and the canvas and glue a tiny butterfly (I cut with my scissors form a prima paper) on the ballerina's shoe.

After all that was done, the fun part with the colors began! I used all the colors of the April 2015 Color Challenge Spray Set plus the Tilt A Weel Teal, Raspberry Lemonade and Merry Go Round Green magicals from the Under the Boardwalk set. I made a lot of splashing and blending all the colors together with some stamps - it was really a fun process! I also glued a big flower and painted it with all these colors. I let the colors drip on the umbrella and the tittle and I really love this effect!


With this project I'm entering the
 'Color Your World' challenge at Our Creative Corner.


So, that's all with my retro project today!
I hope you got some ideas and are inspired to have fun with colors too!
