My beautiful Mama turned 50 in November, and I have a few fun photos from her special day. I had been using the Maggie Holmes Confetti line for more everyday layouts, and had a lot of the celebration themed bits and pieces left. I thought this photo would be a great way to use some of those!
To create this layout, I painted some of the patterned paper with gesso, and then layered gelatos and watercolor paints on top. It dried a bit buckled, but was still very workable. I still have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to mixed media, but I truly enjoy experimenting! Thanks to a friend and Tuesday Morning, I ended up with multiple packs of the Confetti ephemera and had flowers galore! I used them to frame my photo. They are so pretty! I added a few layers and some embellishing (mostly using the chipboard), and a clear acetate title. I used a mix of SIX Crate Paper collections: Craft Market, Love Notes, Maggie Holmes Confetti, Maggie Holmes Styleboard, the original Maggie Holmes, and Maggie Holmes Flea Market.
Thanks for stopping by today!
