holiday layout

Some mixed media fun in the background of this layout. I used gesso first, then added some patterned paper using modpodge, I love this look but I don’t love it when the paper curls! I let it completely dry before adding some blue ink from the Liquitex acrylic ink range in cobalt. Im not usually a big phot user but I just love this particular picture of Remy while we were on holidays recently.

The papers in the background are from Little Yellow Bicycle, Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Crate Paper. The banner is using Maggie Holmes Carousel range by Crate Paper and a few random bits from my stash. I have sewn it onto a piece of Heidi Swapp patterned paper which helps to flatten it out. You may be able to see that I have used a Kaisercraft stencil and some Liquitex light modelling paste to add some raised crosses to my background, they are mainly at the bottom and very subtle.
