Hi there Creatives!
Ezme here today. The vibrant colours of the Aqua Medley Collection are one of my favourites from Little Birdie Crafts!
For this single page layout, I chose to use a white card-stock background with some mixed media elements.
This is how I created the layout:
I adhered the white card-stock to one of the Aqua Medley patterned paper. I trimmed the card-stock 0.5″ smaller. I painted the background first with Gesso and then added a little watercolor paint.
The Silver Sage Sparkle Paste is one of my favourite sparkle pastes, and so is the Script Stencil. I added the Sparkle Paste to add more layers to the background.
I toned the paper down with white Gesso to use as layering behind the photograph.
The flowers needed some sparkle too, so I repeated the Silver Sage Sparkle Paste on the stamens and toned the green leaves down with white Gesso.
The chipboard embellishment was painted with Terracotta Chalk Paint.
The different sized patterned paper layers were adhered with Gel Medium and I also used the heavy bodied Gel Medium to adhere the Sisal behind the photograph. The photograph was raised on two layers of cardboard.
I created my own embellishments with glass domes and images from the patterned paper. I adhered the dome with gel Medium, let it dry and then cut it out with a small sharp scissor.
The small butterflies were fussy cut from the Aqua Medley embellishment page and the rust ribbon is from my stash.
