Wanted to show my latest layout. The one that rolled out like magic, everything worked out fine, I didn't struggle for days with color schemes, etc. This one confirms my mojo does come around again, sometimes ;)
The design was inspired by a layout Mary Catt did. I love all of her work, but that one was very different because of the lines. It really stood out!
This picture was a lucky shot, with my phone, while riding the bus back from the beach during our holiday. I loved how the sunlight caught the blue in both my boys' eyes and the way they sat together staring outside after a long, hot day at the beach.. (The pacifier sucks...) (Pun intended hahaha... )
This particular piece of Paper is from the #ActionNL and was perfect for this design.
I started out with a diamond plate pattern stencil and #Prima #finnabair texture paste #Graphite, topped off with some #Prima #Finnabair #rustpaste.
Next, I sprayed some #TatteredAngels #glimmermist 'Navy Blue' through a #Timholtz stencil called 'Measured'.
I stenciled some words with the stencil pictured below, using the #Prima #Finnabair #texturepaste #graphite again, only blended with black #gesso because I wanted it to be more black.
Next up some rusty stars, using two different 'star' stencils,
and 2 shades of #Prima #Finnabair #rustpaste.
Stamped some sentiments here and there, using Black #Archival ink, and splattered and sprayed some #Tatteredangels #glimmermist 'Navy Blue' wherever I felt it was needed.
Here are some close-ups.
I will explain the steps I haven't mentioned yet, underneath the pictures.
The starry chipboard 'frame' is by #Creativeembellishments and was given the rust paste treatment also. Sprayed a little glimmermist and added a little crackle glaze on it as well.
The black stitches are stickers.
They were silver so I gave them a coat of black gesso to match my project,
The little 'Family St' plaque is #Primamarketing. It was treated with rust paste and one step #crackle medium. The wood star you can still see a little on the left, was also treated with rust paste.
The arrows. Some are wood, some are cork. I painted them with black gesso, Prima texture paste Graphite and rust paste.
The zipper is actually a plastic bracelet. It needed a little rust, too ;)
'Vader en zoon' means 'Father and Son'. I coated the chipboard with white gesso first, then some gray #structurepaint #cementlook from #ActionNL. Then I sprayed a little glimmermist, using 'Navy Blue' and 'Rolling Tide'. Then I added rust paste and finally one step crackle medium.
I hope you like my layout! Comments and questions are always welcome.
