Hi everyone! Some pretty floral inspiration today from me.
I have created a bright and pretty layout of two lovely friends and I dressed up enjoying a day at the races using a beautiful Dusty Attic chipboard title, mandala, daisies and word disks and strips. I will take you through what I have used and what techniques I applied.
Starting with the mandala, I painted it with gold mica paint which covers the chipboard perfectly. I then cut it 1/3rd and 2/3rds so that I could include it on both side of the layout with the photo in between. Cutting the chipboard off centre makes the layout more interesting and dynamic.
For the title, I painted it white and then rubbed it with white pearl wax which gives it a pearlescent shine. The word disk and strip are just painted white so they don’t stand out as much as the title. I have layered the title over the larger part of the mandala so it really stands out.
I then coloured the daisies white with a bright yellow paint in the centre. I love the effect of the painted daisies among the dimensional paper flowers. I have also used some small foliage berries which I have painted with green stems and gold berries. These are also nestled amongst the flower cluster.
I hope you have a chance to get some creative time in soon.
