i saw this technique done by PurpleMailbox (you can see the AWESOME video here) onto a canvas, and i thought it would translate wonderfully onto a scrapbook page! :)
i have never used embossing paste NOT with a stencil...so this was definitely a new technique for me!
and in that spirit, i'm entering it as a last minute entry into the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!
and because i LOOOOOOOOVED that mood board on Butterfly Reflections Ink's blog, i'll go ahead and link it up there too! i mean, come on!! that mood board was INSANE. i loved it so much, i pinned it! ha ha! :D
ok, so onto my layout!
i created those little roses or rosettes by taking a scoop of modelling paste and moving my palette knife in a circular motion until i liked the shape of the flowers! once it was dry (read: the next day!), i added the color with distress inks (worn lipstick and spun sugar) and a gold mist spray by putting the ink pad and mist onto my kraft mat, and using a paint brush apply the color!
i stitched on the title, added embellishments and black mist drops.
i LOVE this! i totally broke the rules and used pinks and golds for my boy page! and i don't care! lol! i LOVE pink and gold, and i love my little mann, so there you go! :)
thanks for stopping by!
let me know if you have any questions about how i made the background...i'm dabbling with the idea of making a video...but i'm super nervous. so i'll only do it, if you want to see! no need to, otherwise! :)
