I have a box of old photos and lately I have been into making my own backgrounds. I end up creating these backgrounds because I get inspired, usually by Wilna Furstenberg, and the next thing I know is that I have a background and no photo or story to go with it.
Since I am continuing to practice the act of creating my own backgrounds I have found myself looking through my box to find a photo to match it. The majority of my old photos that I have printed are of my oldest son and I have a ton of these old photos to tell stories about. With these old photos my plan is to get them scrapped and then document the memories that I have of these photos to the best of my ability.
I have learned that all photos have a story and that I can usually find a story of some sort to go with the photo.
For this layout I used my Turquise Deep Paint from Liquitex and a dry paint brush. The paint dried so quickly that I didn’t even have to use my heat gun. I also used some textured American Crafts cardstock that you can find in the Spiegelmom Scraps shop (don’t forget that if you use code Beth15 at checkout you get a discount). My next step was to grab a star stencil that I believe is from Ranger and some Liquitex Modeling paste. I let my stars dry over night and then I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors to paint the stars green and add some drippage. Drippage is that a word? I don’t think it is but it is now for this blog post!
