Back with another more arty layout created for The Scrapbook Store, using the 7gypsies Postal Collection, alongside a variety of mediums - including texture medium, glimmer mist, Shiva stick, distress ink, acrylic glaze, and paint.
Below you can see how I used the Studio Calico, hexagon mask, not only using with texture medium, but also as a template to draw around, and cut out the shapes. I applied magic mount beneath the hexagon's to add dimension.
I used chipboard elements for the title, from Imaginarium Designs, which were heavily inked with distress ink, and a nice thick coat of Glossy Accents, and again lifted for height using Magic Mount.
Nearly all my life, I have collected vintage and antique laces from all around the globe and it is about time I started using 'some' (would take me 50 lifetimes to use it all). The leaves I coloured using glimmer mist and distress ink, so they would complement the gorgeous Kaisercraft ribbon roses, and Manor House Creations roses. The roses, I coloured using glimmer mist.
The photograph is of myself, in my 2nd year of school - my daughter Tayla is a spitting image of me at the same age.
Soon a new sketch challenge will be up on The Scrapbook Store Gallery. You still have time to enter the December/January sketch, which runs through to the end of this month. You can find all details in 'THIS' post.
Wishing you a wonderful day
