I had to use my new camera on this because the old one wouldn't work. This has too many pixels. When you click on this for a close up, it looks blurry. Im going to put close up photos on my blog.
This started out as a small fall watercolor. It changed into a Halloween page with a black bg, but I just didn't like how dark the page looked. Now its a beach page,lol. I spent a very long time on this, and am giving up. Its time to move on to a different page, another photo.
The earring at the lower left is from my sis, and so are the butterfly wings. Theyre from a greeting card she gave me to use on a page. I did a lo in the past of a pic from the same batch. I actually wanted to just post the watercolor parts that are around the photo, but I thought, nah, photos are nice too. My initial inspiration for the watercolor was from watching Contadina K's video of painting a still life of grapes. Before I put the texture paste on , it was an abstract of tree branches with leaves. The stenciled tree I think, the colors , just sparkle against the orange. The dusty attic I thought came out pretty. I did however put gesso on the da before I removed it from the surrounding chipboard , and it got torn up. I would have ripped it up anyway but it was kind of sad to see, lol!
Im not going to say what I really don't like about this, because then everyone will probly focus on it,lol.
Products I used include jacquard mica powders, lumiers, twinkling h2os,acrylic silks,winton and lewis watercolors.
The da started out purple , when this was a Halloween page. It was so pretty against a black bg. And the watercolor parts here , and the butterflies popped against the black. The photo looked great too. I may just put all this stuff on ...I was going to say black ppr but ide have to change the da back to purple. Lol.
