Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a layout using the gorgeous Spread Your Wings Collection.
To begin with I matted my photo using sections from Keep Calm, Spread Kindness & Earth Angels papers. I added cardboard between sheets to add height.
I painted some chipboard with Heavy White Gesso.
I made up my own paint colours. To begin with I added 3 drops of Mermaid Artist Ink & 1 drop of Calypso Artist Ink to some Heavy White Gesso. Once mixed well I painted some flowers & parts of my chipboard.
I then add 4 more drops of Mermaid Artist Ink for a deeper colour. And again painted some flowers & more of the chipboard.
I then added a few drops of Grass Artist Ink for a more greener colour. Again I painted the chipboard & some flowers.
I then used the paint that was just in my lid & added more Mermaid. And painted.
And then some more Mermaid!!
Using the Seeker metal die I cut out some black card.
Using both the darker paint on the lid & lighter in container I splattered around the page.
I then Splattered some watered down Heavy White Gesso.
I was really impatient so dried with a heat gun. It was really cool when some of the thick splotches raised right up.
I fussy cut the green butterflies from the collection, and along with the gesso painted butterflies I went over them with the Clear Shimmer Pen
I used the Clear Shimmer pen to highlight the flowers also.
I didn't add much more.
Thanks for looking.
