Bokeh Effect Trend

  1.  In photography, bokeh (Originally /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ BOH-kay — also sometimes pronounced as /ˈboʊkə/ BOH-kə, Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.

Recreating the bokeh effect has been popular in cardmaking recently - just Google "Bokeh Stampin' Up!" and see what results you come up with. I've had a go and it's not easy, even with a given technique. 

I think the best result I have found online was the following card - I don't know who the artist is to give credit (please message me if it is your work of art and I'll credit you!) but the following card was pinned to a Pinterest board from a website called "Moxie Fab World"

My creation ended up looking more like a tie-dye effect - I think this is down to the quality of the Watercolour Paper I used: 

Stampin' Up! Bokeh

A pretty poor outcome despite the time put into this! I think more blending was needed of the colour underneath; - again, I think this was down to the quality of the Watercolour Paper. 

I will not be defeated and will be giving this another go when I have some more time on my hands! And I still think the card is pretty in its own right. 

Back tomorrow with more creations
