Its my turn today at the 13 Arts blog. Here is the first layout and tomorrow I will reveal the second one.
I made this layout with a picture of my daughter I took at the beach. I wanted to use blue hues to mimic the beautiful blue sky. I used 13 Arts Pearl Sky Blue Ayeeda Mist for this purpose.
As an inspiration for this sketch I sound an amazing Russian challenge site called Zagadka-Sketches. Loved their sketch and mirrorred it on the other side of the page!! I might have to visit this site more often
here is the sketch
I used a chipboard frame around the photo. First I primed it with 13 Arts Gesso. Then I masked it with some 13 Arts Modeling Paste over a brick template. Once dry, I rubbed it with a wipe using the blue mist.
I combined both the brick paper from the “Frosted Life” collection and a textured brick layer using the modeling paste. Then I also inked and rubbed the blue mist with a wipe.
I covered this chipboard lamp post with some 13 Arts Gesso and then lightly inked it with blue chalk ink. finally I stamped it with a crackle stamp to make it look antique. I also stamped the background with the same stamp.
