To make this page I glued Blue Fern paper onto a piece of cardboard, in hopes that the paper wouldn't warp with the gesso and paint I planned on using. I coated the paper with mat medium,and sponged on some gesso with a cosmetic sponge across the center. I applied texture paste with a stencil and old credit card.
The chipboard is actually a small wood frame I got at Hobby Lobby. I broke it in half ,applied gesso, then layers of Lindy's. I mounted the photo on a piece of cardboard. I dyed cheesecloth with Mission Bells Brown, and glued some on the page.
I brushed on layers of paint on the paper, usually letting them dry,but sometimes adding different colors while wet. I dabbed off excess in different areas. I sponged on gesso to areas if I thought things were looking too busy.
To add more visual interest I used micro beads,seed beads,mica flakes, rub ons, bling, dried moss, a quote sticker, tiny pieces of lace, and pearls.
I splattered on paint in areas, and also glued on tiny pieces of blue feathers.
I love the gold shimmer from the Lindy's!
I put metal glitter in the bottle and sealed the opening with glue. There's also some rhinestones in the stream of glitter pouring out of it. I dyed a piece of silk ribbon with Lindys and tied it onto a pin.
Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
