“ Find yourself Outdoor “

November 27, 2017
Hi my crafty friends, 

                 I am back with my another mix media layout which I designed for More Than Words monthly challenge. 

                       Winter, the cool breeze, the late sun rises and early sun sets, real dark nights and warm sun kissed days…oh!!! what a season! Dwelling from coastal area, I long for the arrival of winter to find myself Outdoor.

                      In this time of the year, when we venture outdoors with family and friends. Long and short breaks from home and work and in the folds of nature dot most of my week ends. It brings the family closer and creates the treasure trove of memories. I always return refreshed, rejuvenated and inspired after such sojourns. 

               This month’s project thus turned out to be the natural extension of my inspiration from the nature. Wood textured paper at the background provided for the portrayal the Outdoor. Cheerfulness of the season is best delineated by the chirpy birds and the free-floating fluttering butterflies, I contemplated. The wild flowers swaying to the gentle cool breeze fit the bill and complemented my idea. Isn’t it then the perfect setting to place the outdoor photo? Bingo…and my project was conceptualised ! 

                      Here are some close ups...

                    I used the Wood grain textured paper as a background. To start, i layered my paper with clear gesso. then i created textured with modeling paste and stencils. Then i used some Lindy's spray and even Distressed oxide ink spray to give colours to my layout.

               I heat embossed butterflies and chipboards with ranger's White embossing powder. Then i placed and layered chipboards , die cuts , my fuzzy cut flowers , wooden emblishments on my layout. When everything was glued down , I added some art mini stones and tan glitter dust and made some splatters with white colour. And at the end did some dry brushing with white gesso.
