Here it is...
This is one of my favorite pictures of my son, Ethan, taken a few years back! I knew the minute I saw this picture, I wanted to do a layout of some sort with it. I had some extra canvases so ended up altering one of them. After coloring up the base with some sage green acrylic paint, I again kept it pretty simple since the papers I used are so pretty already. This older paper collection is from Prima called "Sunkiss" and is still one of my favorites. I embellished my canvas with goodies in my stash including some burlap, a small wooden chipboard frame from Michaels, some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and a Tim Holtz ticket stub which says "Adore". On my roses, I also added a bit of gold stickles around the edges to tie in with the colors and give them more sparkle! I was out of my sculpting paste but may add a little bit of stenciling later since I love that mixed media look.
Have a wonderful weekend!
