Hi everyone! I am excited to share this layout I created for The Crafter's Workshop, with a photo from our recent beach trip. I took this photo from a sunset picnic and it inspired the use of this tiny stencil ‘Remnant’ called Sun Flare.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I started by brushing an even layer of the Black Gesso onto a piece of plain white textured cardstock. This Gesso is really great because it dries so quickly and doesn’t warp the paper very much.
The Black Gesso is a nice Matte finish and almost looks like chalkboard paint. It also really highlights the Gold so well.
I mixed the Gold Gesso with the plain Modeling Paste and used it with the small ‘Sun Flare Remnant’ stencil by Rebekah Meier.
After the gold dried, I used the 12×12 ‘Inspired Words’ to stencil the word IMAGINE vertically down the page, using the ‘Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste.’
This Light & Fluffy paste is the most awesome medium to work with!
I added lots of painted wood veneers over and around the photo and stenciled areas.
I loved using the Sun Flare stencil along with this photo of the sun setting behind my daughter…love using the inspiration and the literal symbolism together.
I wanted to keep the layout simple with just a few colors. I thought the Black Gesso would make a wonderfully dramatic background for the Gold Gesso and the colors from the photo.
