Beautiful tranquil colours this week, I decided to stick with the theme and use some pictures of my kids and their cousins. This was my first kids trip to Perth on their own although a little home sick they really had such a great time catching up with family.
For the background mat I have used Blue Oasis from Bazzills range of Fourz and then Basic Greys Black tie and vellum. Layered all 3 and machine stitched, distressed and spritzed with Sand and Riptide from Tattered Angels.
I also used a TA Mask and spritzed with turquoise cut out and adhered to the background.
Other papers used are from Websters and Kaiser. I had a light blue doily that I spritzed with Turquoise and Riptide and some fabric mesh that also go the spritz treatment. I then stitched all of these down. Frame was cut from a old diecut sheet by a company called Patchwork and I have distressed and gesso'd it. I used the vellum in strips and curled it and entwined them underneath the photos to mimic seaweed, well thats what was going on in my head...lol
Lots of micro beedz were used as my form of sea glass.
Other products used are: MME rubons, Tim Holtz pearls, Melissa Frances resin, Prima flowers and Dusty Attic chipboards.
Thanks for looking and would love to hear your feed back and comments.
