Rich and I - Mixed Media Layout

by admin

Hi everyone!  Melissa here today!  I love using these beautifully made products, the colors and images are amazing!  My husband and I had a house in the Sierra Nevada foothills in Northern California. This photo was taken during that time.

To make this page I put a piece of Believe paper onto a sheet of black card stock. I put a wide piece of lace on, and taped it to the underside of the black paper. I put the photo on black cardstock, and used some foam core board to give it some dimension.  I used foam tape to adhere the ribbon around the photo.

I used a small cosmetic sponge to apply gesso, and applied my embellishments. Check out the adorable hummingbirds, they add so much interest to the page! I added watercolors, mica powders, and crackle paint to frame the photo.

I wiped glossy accents on the butterflies, and poured on glitter.

I colored some gauze with brown watercolor to make some nesting material at the bottom right. I dry brushed aqua metallic paint all over the page to highlight the textures.

Thanks for looking at my page, I hope you liked it!
