To create this project I started by tearing lots of little pieces of paper from the Pink Fresh Up in the Clouds Collection. Then I started adhering them to my canvas with Modge Podge. Once all of the pieces were glued down and dry I covered them with White Gesso with my finger. I then started adding more colors of pinks, white, blues and yellows to the background with Gellatos and rubbing them in, again with my fingers. To blend in with the golds of this collection I used the Prima Empress Gold Spray and left it to dry. In the mean time I picked out some wood veneers by Ellie's Studio and Covered those in matching gellato colors. Next I tore a vellum sheet from the Pretty Little Studio's Christmas Collection and used it to mat my photo. Finally, I added more texture by going over my 7Dots Squares Mask with Translucent Embossing paste. I left all of this dry over night and ta-da!!!
I was also inspired by the Sumer Days Challenge at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog, as I've used bright summer colors and a photo of my children last summer.
I am also adding this to the Stamplorations July Stencil Challenge.
I just love this fun little piece of art and can't wait to display it in my house. Thanks so much for stopping by to day and Happy Crafting!
