watercolor and faux denim
Having taken Donna's course I used some of the techniques I learned to create this layout. I used watercolor paper and lots of water and Smooch to create the background. I used a piece of lace across the bottom as a mask before spritzing color. I used a Tim Holtz stamp for the corners and created a faux denim rose using navy paper, sandpaper, white ink and a flower punch. It is very dimensional and it currently lives in a shadow box frame. I used paper from Donna Salazar's line to back the fragments from "idea-ology," a gold paint marker to create a frame and Thickers to create the initial monogram. I used one of my favorite photos from my daughter's wedding of she and her husband standing against a mural wall in the city.
