Here is the March 123 Challenge Blog criteria:
So Pastels, Dream and Frames.
And here is my entry:
Here are some close ups:
To create this layout I started with inspiration from Wilna over at 2Peas. this is based on a layout she created. I started by cutting my frames from 300 gsm+ cardstock and cut two of each, enough for four sets of frames. While these were cutting on my Silhouette Cameo, I gesso-ed white cardstock, decided where I wanted my frames and paint runs to be and then created the runs with gouache. I created then one color at a time making sure each was dry before moving on. I love the extra depth that he gouache gives. It seems to have more body than traditional watercolor, which I use for it's translucency. While this dried I chose from my collection of scraps the pieces of paper to lay under my frames to cover up the starting place of the paint runs. I cut and layered these before adding thm to the page. I then added the photos to the frames and added foam squares and dots to the underside to create height. I then added all the embellishments, the title and the journalling.
See you all again soon.
