I have another page to share; this time it's inspired by the White With 1 Challenge blog. The May challenge is White with Gold. This was perfect for me because I recently decided that I needed a lot of gold schtuff. Sure, I see it's quite fashionable right now, but also my son has taken a liking to all things gold. Not even my crafty stash is safe! Here is my submission:
Much of the embellishment on this page is thanks to the recent acquisition of gold embossing powder. I've known for months that I wanted some, so I finally broke down and got some. Yeah, I think I like it.
Other details were on a whim:
- I used a brick stencil (my favorite) to spray a nearly-invisible layer onto the white cardstock. It helped me focus.
- Around the photo, I painted some of the bricks with a layer of gold glitter glue, like an extended frame.
- I added water to some gold acrylic paint for splatters.
- I then used the too-much leftover to paint the frame...that also has random leftover glitter glue.
- From the hexagon matting -- which was originally a whim of just playing with the embossing powder -- I cut a random arrangement to add to the bottom corner.
- To highlight the matting, I ran my embossing dauber along the edges, dipped in powder and embossed for a distressed edge.
- The nautical stars were cut, using the Indie Cartridge (Cricut); and I couldn't help but use the negative space for a variation with the stars.
I think that sums it up. Again, thank you for looking. I'm excited to see what the color combination will be for June.
