The prize (Sorry, I know it's not the best photo, and that some things have slid behind others making them hard to see):
Here is this months sketch at OUAS:
And here is my interpretation:
'I Adore Your Smile'
As you can see I have chosen to use the 2 photo's this time, something I rarely do, even when following a sketch.
The background was created following my usual routine, gesso, texture paste, watercolors, stamping and my fave Prima stencil. I have trimmed 1cm from all around the edge and pasted it onto another sheet of white card stock. I love the subtle effect the white on white gives. I have also doodled a border using a black marker.
Some of my gorgeous new Prima flowers, all from various collections!! They all work so well together!!
For my title i have used some AdornIt Carolee's Creation alpha stickers, along with the chipboard word 'adore' which has been covered with a coat of black acrylic paint.
The chipboard arrow on the right was given the same treatment as the title, whilst the barbed wire running beneath the photo was painted white with gesso.
The chipboard frames beneath the photo I made myself. I made the polaroid frame first, cutting it from a sheet of chipboard, and covering it with chunky gold glitter. The other two frames were cut from the same sheet, then embossed with white UTEE, followed by a fine gold embossing powder. As I was melting the gold, it bubbled and ran leaving the pattern you now see on the frames.
As always my layouts have lots of layers and dimension. I love these metal keyholes from Prima, they are the perfect finishing touch for any page!!
As you can see I have written my journaling directly onto the page.
The peg has also been covered with chunky gold glitter to match the frame behind the photo.
That's all I have to share with you today.... Jet has just finished his lunch and I need to go and clean up the mess he is certain to have made!!
