'Get in the Picture!' by Amy C

Hi everyone, Amy here with you today. 

I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of amazing products from Bee Arty.

This month's challenge was the inspiration for my page - 'Get in the Picture'.

Take a look at the challenge...

...and this is my take on it...

To start, I took a sheet of 12 x 12 heavy white cardstock. Using a grey lead pencil, I drew a square - this was going to be my working space for the background.

Next I used a brayer to apply some Black Heavy Gesso. As pictured, I applied the paint inside my square. 
The black Gesso here primed my page in preparation for the wet mediums to be applied next.

With some White Heavy Gesso I went over the black lightly with the paint brayer.

To add texture to my page I used the Devotion A4 Stencil and applied some white modelling paste from my stash with a spatula.

It was important to ensure the Gesso was dry and then carefully move the stencil around the page so as to get a consistent floral arrangement over the black and white background.

Next I added colour to the flowers with some gorgeous Colour Artist Inks. With the Lime I painted all the leaves and then painted the flowers with Slipper and Oasis

Once the background was complete and dried again it was time to prepare some of the embellishments for this page.

To add colour over the white doily I dipped my medical gauze into a small droplet of Oasis mixed with some water and set aside to dry.

For the layers behind my photo I made some tags as pictured using the papers from the 'Three Six Five' Paper Collection and then adhered my photo down over the doily, coloured medical gauze and the prepared tags. 

Finally, I set to work on my title: 

1) I coloured a strip of heavy white cardstock with Colour Spray in 'Saffron'and allowed to dry.

2) I stamped it with the Colour Blast 'Textiles' Clear Stamp Set.

3) I used the Three Six Five 'Alphas' Metal Die Set to cut the letters out as pictured and them adhered them to the page.

After I adhered my die-cut title the page I added some embellishments from my stash, including a Charms Creations star with flowers.

Take a look at these close ups.

I hope you have been inspired  - happy crafting!

Amy 😊
