Vera Lane Studio - Neapolitan Birthday Girl

Happy Saturday!


Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is a 6x6 journal page, featuring Birthday Girl who is available in the Etsy shop.

I've gone with a Neapolitan Birthday Girl as I wanted the page the colour of Neapolitan Ice Cream. Is it a flavour that's available all over the world? I really don't know! I just remember it coming in a long cardboard carton when I was wee and my mum sliced it into portions.

I used Paperartsy Fresco Paints in Toffee and Sherbet in opposite corners on my gelli plate and brayered them out.I also added little patches of Dina Wakley Magenta paint. I then applied the AALL and Create #79 Sputnik stencil to it and pressed it down into the layer of paint. I then removed it and allowed it to dry. I then applied a thin layer of the Vanilla to pull the print.

I stamped the grid from the AALL And Create #404 Visual Elements stamp set with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide over the background. I then stamped one of the circle stamps from the same set in Picked Raspberry and Ground Espresso. I finished by stamping the #434 Newsprint Numbers in Picked Raspberry. Some white paint splats to finish.

I then coloured the images with my copics in matching colours adding white highlights with my gel pen, and cut them out. I added some washi tape and then adhered my images to the page. I doodled in the balloon strings with my black fineliner and added some glossy accents to make them shiny. Finally I added the Celebrate sentiment.

Now I'm craving some Neapolitan ice cream!
