In the meantime, I'm still experimenting with different mediums and how these can be used on layouts. I love using fibres, and fabrics to create texture and give additional layers. The layout I am showing today, has been created using fabric over a strongly marked background paper.
The colours in the paper and material overlay, reflect the earthy warm tones on the palette of colours for this month's inspiration at Scrapping Outback: http://scrapping-outback.blogspot.com.au
This is the first time I've visited this site and I'm getting this entry in by the skin of my teeth!
Additional leaves for the embellishment were cut from another darker organza. On these, I melted the edges more, to make the leaves curl and to give them more shape. Some caught a little more than intended, and now have a crispier look..... not quite to flame stage!
The photos are of some tawny frogmouths which reside in our garden during the summer months. The newest addition to this small family, was definitely AD/HD.... very, very fidgety and often kept its parents awake during the day. It provided heaps of interesting photos with its antics.
The colours on the layout in this photo are actually darker than they appear. The artificial light was all I could use this late in the evening.
Thank you for visiting. I love reading your comments. Cheers, Di
