Hi everyone, I hope you are doing well. We experienced tons more snow this week, but at least it's not as cold and it's already starting to melt. It's hard to imagine that Spring will be here in 3 weeks, but I'm looking forward to it ! Can't wait to get out into the gardens again.
I was also honored once again with the Liebster Blog award from Wendy at Wendy's Card Craft. My gosh, this is the sixth time, thank you Wendy! If you have a chance, please visit her blog, she creates beautiful designs and has just joined the new DT for Lavinia (beautiful) stamps.
During the snowstorm I worked on a couple of things and one was this textured mixed media collage which I matted for display. It probably should be on a board or canvas but I started out thinking I was going to create a background for a card.
I'm going to join in the Out of Hat Creations Challenge as the theme is "Hanging About". This lady could be 'hanging about' at a beach, but it was sometime in the 1920's I think:)
I started by painting Gesso over a collage piece of designer paper which I glued to heavy water colour paper. Next I added colour with Neocolor Water Crayons, added water and spread it around. I added some texture using a stencil (TCW Circle Explosions) & Viva molding paste.
I was going to stamp an image but then thought about the beach lady on a left-over piece of Graphic 45 (Traveloque) as she would suit the background colour. Next thing I knew I was adding molding paste, acrylic glaze, metal flowers and chunky gold embossing.
The colours are more vibrant & sparkly than the photo shows.
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
