Spread Your Wings and Fly. by Suzy Loudon

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.
