Back in January I was playing around with my daughter taking pictures at the park near our house. She looked so cute in her little goodie sweater, so sweet and happy. I played with the color a bit on the pictures and a mostly black and white looked perfect!!
I used the wonderful Birds of a Feather April kit with a monochromatic feel of teal and green and with black and white. I did tons of texture with molding paste and stencils, tons, of mists in splatters, drips, sprays, and blobs and one of the mists was from the march kit!!. I did the textures in two phases so I could layer on top of each other, some with the washi tape from the kit under the paste and some over it after it dried. I then added in strips of the papers, flowers, circle cutouts from the papers, stickers, and sequins.
Here you can see up close how I layered up the papers and embellishments. I even distressed the edge of the pictures and added in some ink to the distress portion of the picture.
