Here's what I've created for today's post:
Give Thanks mixed media/scrapbook. This is page seven, and the final page of the book...so far. For this page, I used a yummy piece of BoBunny cardstock, cut to fit the page, and aged and distressed with Cocoa and Tuxedo Black Memento inks. I also used Memento inks (Bamboo Leaves and Pear Tart) to color the Dreamweaver Branch and Pear stencil designs. Before the next step, I stamped this wonderful Walt Whitman quote* from Quietfire Design which is perfect with the pear, even if my pear is green and not red. Artistic license! I love the calligraphy that Suzanne uses for her thoughts and quotes...elegant and perfect for every project!
The really fun part of this page was that, once again, I mixed a small amount of Beacon Fast Finish with a little Bananan Art Glitter, and brushed this over the pear and leaf for subtle sparkle and highlights, and then I sprinkled some Stampendous Color Fragments over the wet surface. When this was dry (doesn't take long...that's why it's called Fast Finish), I pasted the pear with Translucent paste. The PEARfect way to add texture and dimension!
There are still a couple of pages that I haven't shown you yet, so be sure to check back for more!
