Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you.
Today I wanted to show you a layout I created with some beautiful papers from Maja Design that coordinated perfectly with the flowers from Manor House Creations.
This layout was also inspired by my talented friend Riikka’s tutorial in the Pop & Colours #2 online workshops , and the composition of it was based on Shirel’s take on Riikka’s class. Thank you girls for the incredible inspiration you have provided in these workshops. I am also teaching a class at these workshops and you will find the information on that HERE
I started by preparing the base paper with Gesso with just a light layer so it withstands the mixed media mediums I will place on it.
I then cut strips from the same collection and placed them behind the place where my photo will be.
I added some modelling paste with a stencil directly on top and then added some stamping when that was dried.
I then, following the ideas of the tutorial, took out a number of colour mists, inks etc in the same tones and applied them with some water and brush.
Others I applied directly with tip of the mist bottle to give it a different finish.
Here is a close up of the Manor House Creations flowers I have used.
You will find their name in the materials list below.
