Hi! and welcome! Just a short post today. I really love the way plain (or patterned) cardstock / papers can be changed to make them unique by simply adding different mediums to them. Playing with stencils has changed a plain background into something quite different to fit with the photo I've used for my layout. The medium, Viva Precious Metal was brushed on and when dry, Inca Gold (pink and pale gold) was lightly applied in sections.
The photo didn't call for any embellishments. It was matted onto black cardtock, two edges were punched (Martha Stewart trellis punch) chipboard letters for the title were painted in brown acrylic paint and then glazed with Extreme Glitter (hologram). The page was completed by streaking with some random lines of Kindyglitz to represent wisps of clouds.
This photo is one of many I take of sunsets near my home.This one was quite unusual with its two distinct bands of colour and the paling blue sky betwixt.
"A picture is worth a thousand words" springs to mind.
I'm entering this in the ABAC Challenge 16:Inspired by. http://anythingbutacard.blogspot.ca/
Have a look at what other artists and the design team have created.
With me, a great deal of my inspiration comes from nature.
Thank you for stopping by. Thank you also for supportive comments. They are always appreciated. Cheers, Di
