I am really getting back into this blogging thing.. third blog in 2 days! Woo hoo! Here is the LO I made this time
So.. here I am bringing you a LO I made with the border challenge in mind. To start with I decided to use my gelatos that I had incorporated with my kit 'Sunny Spring' for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog . As I only own the two colours you see in the kit, a blue and a coral colour, I decided to mix them together on my craft mat with a water brush to make a muted pink colour.
I then coloured the whole of the edge of the paper, about 2 inches in from each side to create the border.
Once it was dried I took a Prima 'Bubbles' stencil and used a Maya mist and misted all over the paper, including the gelato'd area... (is 'gelato'd a word??).
Once I'd got the background finished I had to decide what to do with it... so for that inspiration I chose to use this sketch from Sues' blog, Me and Mine
As you can see I decided to turn it on its side and work with it from there. After a few false starts that I wasn't really happy with, I've now finished it and am satisfied. Once again I used the Echo Park papers from my kit.
The photos are also of my sister for her album (I did warn you there would be more coming!.. lol) .. so it's another one done.
It's great to be back!
