Gold leaf

A photo of my 3 girls and I at Remy’s year 6 graduation in December 2018. The pictures were taken at the lake at 5.30-6pm when the light is golden, the girls call it golden hour as it always makes you look good in photos.

I used Liquitex heavy body paints on plain white cardstock, then Liquitex modelling paste with a Heidi Swapp stencil ( dots ). I then put some tacky glue on and smeared it with my fingers and lay down a small sheet of gold leaf. Let it dry and then used a stiff paintbrush to brush away the unstuck gold leaf. Some feathers cut on my silhouette cameo and sewed them on the page, a few Kaisercraft journal cards and a cut up quote, finishing with some cotton and a few embellishments and mounted it on Cocoa Vanilla Studio Midnight paper. Also added some little gold star rub ons from One canoe two. Thanks for visiting.
