Georgie here, and today I'm sharing a layout with you. This picture is of my friend at her hen doo, she had a Country Bumpkin day at the races! :) Even though we dressed in fashion to look over the top, we ended up not looking out of place at all hehe!
The Hen had been dolled up with all these gorgeous balloons but they weren't allowed to be taken in (in case they popped and spooked a horse), so we did some cool snap shops just before going in...
The layout was set on 'News Flash' 12 x 12 Messy Head paper collection by 7 Dots Studio.
I wanted to create lots of layers and depth, yet keeping the overall design quite clean... (ish - haha)
I love these wood chip Words by Prima and it took the Barn Door Distress Paint so well, and that was without gesso. The key is from Prima's Resin Collection of goodies 'Keys'.
The black Word Stickers on the page are from 7 Dots Studio Illumination collection - so perfect for sentiments!
Lots of layering from the 7 Dots Studio Messy Head collection 6 x 6 paper stack, the colours are so beautifully feminine but funky at the same time. The 'Simple Things' circle is from the Elements sheet from the same collection. I used a mixture of pop dots, Inkssentials Collage Glue Stick and Glossy Accents to adhere everything.
Art Basics 3D Matte Gel with some purely divine Art Extravagance Glitter in Ebony and Ivory, it's the white one with the touch of colour in the sparkle - I promise, it.. is.. lovely!! I put this through the Dots and Stripes Stencil by Finnabair.
To get the water-y colour background, I used Art Basics Clear Gesso and applied to the areas where I would be putting the paint. The I took an acrylic stamping block, dabbed a little bit of Barn Door Distress Paint, sprayed with lots water and just placed it randomly where I wanted the colour to roughly be. I dried between each layer so gain a stronger shade of red in areas. Then I brush-splattered the paint for an extra artsy feel :)
The poppies you see randomly on the page are also by Prima, called Sculpture Flowers. The string style frame was carefully wrapped into a circle to draw focus to the picture using Prima's Wired Thread in Cardinal - a gorgeous shade of red.
Another Prima Wood Icon, from Flowers (9680) - love these too!! They just help to add the pop of colour with the Barn Door Distress Paint, you get this lovely vibrant shade. Finished up with tiny dabs of Rock Candy Distress Stickles on them.
That's it from me for today, hope you had a lovely visit here and I will see you soon!
