Hi everyone! I’m back today after being gone on vacation! My husband and I spent an extra long weekend at the beach. It was fun but I have to admit that it was as hot if not hotter there in Panama City than at home. All we wanted to do was stay either in the ocean or pool the whole time we were outside…not that was a bad thing to do.😎
I want to share a layout I created from a photo of “Little Miss” when she was around a year old.
I started by inking my glass tray with Melon and Sunshine Blends Inks , adding water to each ink and placing a 8″x8″ piece of Watercolor Paper ( that I cut down to size) into the ink mixture. Once I had the paper covered I removed and let dry.
I adhered a paper doily with adhesive to the watercolor paper.
I then placed the Swirl Dot Art Screen onto the watercolor paper and applied Matte Extra Heavy Gel with a Spatula . I removed the art screen and let dry. I inked three scraps of leftover watercolor paper with a mix of water and Sunshine Blends Ink (2 scraps of paper) and Leaf Blends Ink (1 scrap of paper). Once all were dry I adhered two of the watercolor papers horizontally to layout.
Next I inked the glass tray with Wildberry Blends Ink, added water to the ink, loaded a paint brush with the ink mixture and splattered the watercolor paper. Also I added a piece of ric rac to the watercolor paper.
I inked the Botanical Mini Molding Mat with Leaf Blends Ink and stamped onto the inked Sunshine Blends scrap of watercolor paper.
Once dry I adhered to the back corner of photo and glued both slightly off center of watercolor paper.
I add a brad to center of the flowers, adhered the leaf to back of the flower and to the lower corner of photo. Next I added several loops of green metallic thread to flower. I also added another flower to the top corner of the photo and adhered sequin to center of the flower.
Even though the quality wasn’t the greatest when I printed out this photo ( I just couldn’t throw it away) I still think the layout turned out pretty cute! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
