Good day everyone!!!!
It has been a while since my last posting - the gardening got in the way. So today I am going to share with an easy mixed media layout. This picture has been waiting a long time for a home - my granddaughter in the picture is now ten years old. Some day I will be caught up.
For the background, I cut strips off of two co-ordinating papers and added them to the left side of the main paper piece. I tore the edges first, glued them together making sure that I measured across the top to keep the paper at 12". The main paper piece is the striped piece on the right which I cut down to 10" wiide. The middle pink piece is the back of the main paper piece (the 2" that I cut off of the end). I then added to the pink piece a 2" wide strip of a co-ordinating paper. I fussy cut the flowers from the second paper to use around the photo. Here is a close-up. I applied a texture paste onto the background using a vine stencil.
I embossed two decorative chipboard frames with a white embossing powder and added them to the layout first. Next came the flowers that I cut out from the second patterned paper. You can see them on the frames and coming down the sides of the picture. I added some lace then tucked a decorative chipboard piece, embossed with sparkly pink embossing powder, under the bottom edge of the lace. I added my picture next (popped up) then my silk flowers and leaves. And finally I put some art stones around the picture for added texture. There you have it.
Below is another close-up of a couple of areas.
Until next time, this is Donna wishing you a safe and happy week.
