Words & Paintery January Challenge, Mixed media Layout "Sunshine"

Hello all!

I have been neglecting my blog a bit...
I have been busy, though. For the January challenge over at Words & Paintery I created a layout, according to this moodboard. I had the perfect picture in those exact colors!

The quote was hard to incorporate at first, but then I came up with the lines from the song
"You are my Sunshine".
Please, don't take my Sunshine away.
If anything ever happened to my little boy, that would feel like an unrequited love to me. Heartbreaking...

Blend modeling paste with Tattered Angels Glimmermist "Dyon", apply through TCW Gabriella Pollacco stencil, spray some more glimmermist and allow to drip.

  STEP 2
Blend Glimmermist "Kiwi" and GlimmerGlam "Caspian Sea" with modeling paste
and apply through the same stencil.
In the top right corner I have used another TCW stencil, also by Gabriella Pollacco.

 Stamp some text around the stenciled areas with brown ink.

Apply a few coats of white gesso on the Creative embellishments chipboard text, before brushing several colors of yellow and green in an ombre effect on to the text and sun.
I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist "Dyon", "Marigold", "Kiwi", "Green" and Glimmer Glam "Caspian Sea".
Once dry, add one step crackle medium on the text, and add a gloss on the sun. (Yes, I didn't want a cracked sun...)

 Color some white open fabric with the same glimmermists, into an ombre blend of yellow and green. Cut the bits and attach them to the back of the picture.

 Using your die cutting machine, cut a bunch of foliage in different shapes and colors matching the color scheme. Spray all of them with Tattered Angels Glimmermists to give them more depth.
Tuck these all around the picture, serving as a colorful frame, lengthening the corn from the picture. Don't forget that upper right corner!

That was really all this time... Hope you enjoy my take, and give the challenge a go! I'm a little late posting this, but it still runs until January 15, so.

I'll leave you with some close-ups.
