Greetings everyone Kathleen here with a layout I hope will make you yearn for summer!


This photo of my son when he was a mere tot was taken out in the country which inspired the layout design.  In the store I found this awesome Chicken Wire 6″x6″ panel.  I cut out two pieces and gave each of them different treatments.  The upper piece was sprayed with heidi swapp color shine in mustard then lightly and randomly touched with Ingvild Bolme coldsfoot petal.  The bottom piece was first lightly gessoed then inked yellow followed by the spray.  I wanted the layout to have the illusion of sunshine and shade.  The Flourish Dragonfly was rubbed with Art Anthology

guava stain which would pick up the color of my son’s hair.  The frame was left in it’s natural state.  The word fun was lightly sprayed with with mustard color shine.  Now the pipes and faucet were first given a light coat of gesso then painted with Shimmerz Barely Blue Dazzelerz.





I had a lot of fun playing with stencils, paints, bling and things on this layout.  Here are a few close ups.
