and here is the inspiration layout
I was inspired by the gesso/painted background, the colours Beck used on her layout (when printed out I saw she used pink as well) and the placement of strips of paper.
My photographs were taken when I was visiting my friends in Buderim, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia recently. Emma (aged 7) showed me how to download a photo collage app for my Samsung Tablet and she then walked me through how to 'work' it. Yes, you can learn something new everyday. I resisted putting dog ears and noses on us though....
For the layout I first used white gesso with an chicken wire type stencil, then sprayed with ink and dabbed with some green distress ink. The flowers and stars are to represent the flowers in Chloe's and my hair and the crowns for Emma and Chloe.
I hope you like this layout - and remember to be creative, one must play. Even that means getting blue spray all over your hands as I did today. Cheers, Margaret :)
