Hi everyone, Cathy here. Today I am sharing a LO created with the new Wandering Thoughts collection, teamed with some of the gorgeous new flowers and frames.
The Most Beautiful View
To create this LO I decided to alter the reverse side of the Wandering Thoughts-Journal pp with a coat of watered down gesso to soften the purple colour into a mauve. I then added a coat of gesso with a sponge diagonally across the paper. Once dry, I used texture paste to mask over the gesso with a doily stencil, then misted and inked over the masking to define the doily pattern.
I totally adore the MHC ornate frames, and was very excited to find a bunch of new designs in my parcel of goodies. On this LO I used the Ornate Frames-elegance white which I cut down into 2 sections. I misted the floral section and added some pearls to become part of my main flower cluster, then used the frame section for my title. I randomly stamped the frame with turquoise ink and a lace stamp, then backed the frame with Wandering Thoughts-Beautiful pp. To tie in with my main flower cluster, I embellished the frame with one of the new turquoise country roses and a Wandering Thoughts blossom in the denim colour. Using gesso to soften bolder colours to pastels is a great way to alter your flowers. I used this technique on the denim blossom to give it a colourwashed look by lightly brushing with a little gesso.
The lovely frame around my photo was cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I tucked the floral misted section of my frame down one side and used some of the new flowers to create a pretty cluster, which I embellished with a bling and pearl flourish and floral diecut sprigs.
