You Are Unique
Well, here is another example of a new technique I have been trying out on layouts. I used Bazzill gray cardstock. I then took white acrylic paint and painted the background. I then used Mulberry paint and dipped my fingers in it and made all the little red dots. I decided to use this old photo which is me and my mom in 1951. We were outside our home in Van, Texas. I decided to just use red with splashes of white and brown. I took a white sheer ribbon , made a bow and then I dipped it into red paint. Yes, my fingers were very messy!!! But I then placed it on the area and let it dry. Needless to say the ribbon needed no glue for it stuck to the cardstock perfectly. I also added a piece of paper which I used a Martha Stewart punch and her circle cutter. I glued all this together. I then added red Prima flowers and brown flowers plus a rose cut out from Prima as well. I then found a brown Prima flower and 3 buttons from Prima as well. I placed them in the corner and then added white and red paint to each one. I also cut out a brown piece of paper and a button from Prima and then added paint to it. I took a brush and added small white dots of paint to the cardstock. I also used white paint in various areas which I thought needed to be highlighted. I hope you like this. It took me awhile to put it all together but I rather like the effect.
Thanks for looking! Please add your name to my friends list and leave a comment which is always appreicated.
