Here is my new layout, based on the December color challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang
Don't you just love that color combination! I would like to enter my layout for this challenge.
My little girl was born in november 2009, and the day after she was born, it started snowing...Because of that memory, I was inspired to use her baby picture in combination with these colors...
Here are some close up pictures...
This is how I created the background:
I started with adding clear gesso on the whole paper (this way the inks don't get soaked up by the paper) and let it air dry.
Next I applied heavy white gesso with my palette knife and a stencil.
Again let air dry.
Then I started with my Lindy's starburst sprays
First applying Sea Grass Green, spraying extra water with a mister bottle to spread the inks around on the paper, and used a cloth to take away some inks here and there.
Repeat the same steps with the next colors: Ponderosa Pines Olive, Midnight Rendezvous Raven and Peony Scarlet Red
I used a heattool to speed up the drying process.
My next step was using a stamp (raindrops) and Lindy's embossing powder Midnight Gold on the left side and at the top of the page.
When my background was ready, I taped it to another (grey/black coloured) page, and sewed the edges together.
I applied photo, branches, flowers and other embellishments, and the last step was dripping some alcohol ink (gold) on the page.
Thanks for visiting!
