Hi everyone! Melissa here with a page for Paper House. I love using the ColorWays papers, the images are so beautiful.
- Atlantis Mini Trim Cards 12" Colorways Scrapbook Paper
- Atlantis Map 12"Colorways Scrapbook Paper
- Hummingbirds Puffy Sticker
To make this page. I started by cutting up some paper, and arranging the pieces underneath the photo.
Using a stencil, I applied texture paste at the upper left.
I glued on squares of foam core board underneath the arrangement to give some dimension, and sponged on gesso around the edges. I painted over the gesso with watercolors.and watersoluble oil pastels.
I used several different things to give more texture to the page: microbeads, crackle paint, glass glitter, seed beads,lace, and ribbon are a few.
I made a crown/bird's nest out of crystals, dried moss, embroidery floss, feathers, silver chain, and small pearls.
To kind of blend the colors together, I brushed on a lot of turquoise mica powder.
As the final step, I wanted to give the raised papers more definition. I took a watercolor pencil, and drew lines around a lot of the edges, and brushed water over them. On top of that, I painted on a mix of green and brown water soluble oil pastels.
Thanks for looking, and I hope you liked my page!
