So, I'm finally catching up with posting some projects which I had worked on over the past couple of years but haven't had the time to post, beginning with this one, which I did in 2017, for this dear friend who was getting married.

The photo was taken during her hen party and I created this mixed media canvas piece as a gift for her.

Here are some close-ups.

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)

Love Story

So, it's been awhile. I suppose family matters got the best of my time this past year. But yesterday I attended the wedding of our dear friends' daughter, and I did this layout as a gift for the happy couple.

I used papers from Webster's Pages' 'In Love' collection for the layout, with floral embellishments from 49 And Market.

To create a bit of texture and dimension on the layout, I used Tim Holtz's 'Tiles' layering stencil and some modeling paste on the background paper, and then did lots of layering using pop-up foam dots.

A bit of distressing, tearing and inking, and there you have it! Here are some close-up shots.

I used S.E.I.'s One-Hour Album Kit, but added liberally to the embellishments.
