Mama by Suzy Loudon

Hi all. I hope everyone has survived the Christmas festivities & now taking the time to relax. What better time to get some crafting in.
Today's page is special to me. This was a candid shot of my mother & our oldest son just before he left to live in Europe for ten months. 

To begin my layout I arranged some patterned papers to form the background. I then gave it a bit of a white wash with Heavy White Gesso.


I have a spray that I made up of water and Navy Colour  Shimmer Dust. I used this to splatter around some colour on my page.


I sprayed some water dispersing the colour.


I used my Navy Colour Shimmer Dust spray to give my white flowers colour.


I then used my made up Velvet Colour Shimmer Dust Spray to colour some more white flowers.


I painted my chipboard with Heavy White Gesso. Then used my Silver Shimmer Brush Marker along the top. And Velvet Shimmer Dust on the bottom heart.


I painted another chipboard with Heavy Black Gesso.


I mixed Navy Shimmer Dust with the Heavy White Gesso until I got the shade of colour I wanted. Then painted my letters. Once dry I went over them with my Clear Shimmer Brush Marker. 


I gave some tiny chipboard hearts a spray with Navy Shimmer Dust.

To finish off my layout I added some ribbon, chipboard word tabs and a sprinkling of beads, micro beads & art stones.




Thanks for looking. I hope you all continue to have a happy and safe Christmas season.
xxx Suzy
