Even though there was some frustration when I started working on this layout. I'm very satisfied with the final outcome.
Usually before I work on my piece, I would already have a concept in my mind; the overall look I want and how I will achieve it. Very often, when you see crafters posting or sharing their creation; everything looks perfect. Agree? In truth, there are moments....ahem....actually quite often that accidents happen or things do not turn out as expected.
So for the layout above, I had originally started with the beautiful Ombre paper collection from Blue Fern Studios. But a pop sound from the little green evil bottle has dashed my concept within that spilt second....this is the moment when I went Arrgghhhh!!!!
Looking at the photo below...that's a whole blot of yummilicious green paint heh....in case you are wondering; this is a bottle of Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Evergreen Bough. It's a lovely color which I will have to replenish very soon :)
In my crafting world, white gesso comes to the rescue when accident happens. It's my wonderful life saviour :)
This picture is the completed background after a layer of Gesso, some misting, stamping and stenciling over the spilt paint. I have actually made use of the paint spill to create an extra effect giving that area a thinner layer of Gesso so the green paint will come through.
So here are some close up of the pretty embellishments used.
|This pretty tag was cut out from Blue Fern Studios Montage collection which I have enhanced with ribbon and pearl swirls. |
The Hot Air Balloon Resin is from Websters Pages which I have been hoarding for some months.
|Most of my embellishments are from Prima Marketing - Flowers, bird cage, Butterfly Resin and of course the bling bling crystals as well.|
