Little Fey

Hi there! It's Miae here to share a page.

I don't normally use florals on my layouts but I'm totally enamored with UmWowStudio's Floral Collection and just had to have a play with them!

I love the variety of shapes and sizes this collection has. To emphasize the two pieces on the page, I gave them texture and used a bright color. I covered the chipboard with gesso then used a spatula to slather a fair amount of acrylic paint mixed with molding paste. Once I glued the chipboard down, I outlined them with Derwent Inktense pencils, spritzed water and painted around them. Love the way they turned out!

I used 7DotsStudio, Messy Head collection as my paper. To alter it, I stamped, painted with watercolors, then used the Hexagon Confetti Mask with acrylic paint to "stamp" areas of the background. The randomness, the texture, again I loved the result! And of course I had to use the Heart Confetti throughout the page since they tied in so nicely with my photo :) I covered them with gesso then colored them with chalk ink.

I used flair from the beautiful Make A Wish set to embellish the focal cluster. A picture of blowing dandelions has such a sweet, magical sentiment. I tied it into the color scheme of the page by covering it with clear gesso and flicking watercolor paint onto it.

Hope you got some inspiration from that! Have a wonderful day......!
