Picture Perfect – Michelle Carrick – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello scrappy friends,

So this is my take on this month’s mood
A simple, yet effective canvas, 
using this stunning photo of my friends little girl.

I went garden shopping,
YES I found the
bark and the seeds, in the garden. 
All I did was dry them in the oven, for a

I prepared the canvas by using Tim Holtz
Distress paint Antique linen and rubbing on with a wet wipe.
I then die cut my leaves, and inked them
by spraying water first and adding Cherry and walnut and again spraying with water to
get the desired effect.

 I then painted my foliage with rust paint –Brown and
adding cherry to the ends. I painted the small foliage and fancy frame with
Sparks Magical paint.
For my title I used Sparks Red Wine

Added splats stencil to the canvas using Tim
Holtz – Vintage photo and Black soot and touching with Sparks magical paint.
Then putting everything together and
adding grassy straw and gluing everything down.
(Just so you know I’m a fan of hot glue
and it sticks)

I hope you have fun!
Happy Scrapping
