I loved this color combination....
My other inspiration came from the
I would like to enter my layout for both challenges.
Here are some close ups:
This is how I interpreted the challenge bliss & gesso:
The title is: 'Cherish' (You are my bliss forever) and I guess it's not hard to explain why...
My little girl is my bliss, she brings joy into my life every day...
Gesso technique (one of my favs):
Use a roller and gesso on patterned paper.
I mixed clear and white gesso, so the pattern from the page is still visible.
My second step was using only white gesso and a stencil, rolling over it with my roller.
This is the result:
My next step: spraying some primary elements on the page.
I used alchemy acrylic paint on the edges.
Then another layer of gesso.
When dry I used my oilpastels (white on the whole page, black on the edges)
And last but not least a stencil from Dusty Attic and modelling paste...
And this is the end result...
I was inspired to create this page by the very talented Maryse Jolin
I saw this video from Maryse and I loved her drawing techniques.
I was also very inspired by this layout from KareenBH
