I love when I get a really good dose of inspiration. I have been checking out Art Piaskownica lately and their very talented DT and participants. I got brave enough to try the Mixed Media challenge for June which is to focus on the background which needs to be glued/decopaged.
She loves Paris, vintage, and different things, so I know this will be on of her favorite pages in the album (even hubby liked this one).
I started by taking a piece of 6x8 kraft paper. I glued down some paper from an old March 2017 farm journal paper gifted by my sweet friend, Teresa. I then glued down two pieces of Close to My Heart paper cut in pieces so I could share the front and back. To blend it all in a bit better, I added some flowers, a paint loaded butterfly, a bit of white paint, and a lightbulb border. To build up my picture matting, I added in tea bag leaving on the string, a piece of book paper focusing on Choplin, a bit of netting, a piece of bunting, and more kraft paper. The picture of Allie and the butterfly were icing on the cake.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit. You should check out Art Piaskownica - some beautiful things there!
