Good morning, sweet friends!! I've got a post up at the Webster's Pages blog for the first time, and let me tell you- THAT is exciting!! I got to work with their beautiful new Park Drive collection, and decided to go in a different direction with it, using an 8x10 canvas. I've also put together a little tutorial for you to give a little insight into how I achieved my background.
Let's take a look...
"The Eyes Have It"
I really had a lot of fun putting this one together. Sometimes it's just liberating to let yourself go and do whatever...and truly, Webster's Pages products are PERFECT for a mixed media project like this one. Here's some step-by-step instructions for you if you're interested:
Step 3: Lay a mask across the top of your canvas and spritz brown mist, then pink mist over it. Do this at the top left and bottom right corners. This gives your canvas a bit more depth and dimension. (And any mask will work well!)
Then I crumpled the paper and then added it to the canvas. Next, I cut the hot air balloon from the B-side of th paper along with some of the flowers on THIS SHEET, our Margaret paper. A few banners, a touch-up of gesso and the canvas is photo ready.
I loved this little quote from Air Supply - sometimes I just like to sit and peruse the internet for quotes and poetry related to kids...just to get me thinking, and to remind myself of how fortunate I am to have three little ones to call my own :).
Just add some bling and pearls and you're set!
