A Layout to Share

So I’m back with that layout I promised to share using my February Layout Sketch, and I have to admit to being extremely proud of this layout.  As some of you know I haven’t had much time lately to create for myself, other than classes and the odd 8×8 canvas.  I created this layout in several sittings whilst making changes to my Studio, again!  I am feeling very creatively inspired again, and this layout is the starting point of that inspiration.

I have misted over the flowers and leaves with a combination of greens, gold and Perfect Pearls Biscotti.  The background has mist dribbles running down it to enhance the already grungy patterned paper.

I have swiped (with my fingers) Titan Buff Golden Fluid Acrylic paint randomly over the whole layout once finished to add to the grungy finish.

This is the progress photograph that I shared as a sneak peek on my February Layout Sketch post, which shows the Bo Bunny Doily that I used to mop-up the excess mist after spraying the flowers and leaves used on the layout.  The Bo Bunny Doilies are fabulously thin and strong, holding their shape and embossed design after being completely soaked.

One thought on “A Layout to Share

  1. This is great. I bet you enjoyed ” getting into the messy stuff” as well. I think reorganising the art space is a never ending job in itself.
    I love the colours that you have used as well.
