Mixed Medium: Beautiful with Shari Carroll
Welcome to the blog everyone and Happy Tuesday! As we get closer to the holidays I think more about creating gifts for loved ones and this project is perfect for a that. I think a personalized gift is so heartwarming.
I’m so lucky that Melodys mom is such a great photographer and I get to play with the her photos. To start this project, I had the photo printed in black and white so I can add all my color using flowers, embellishments and paint.
The 6.5″ x 9″ Tim Holtz Framed Panel is the perfect size for a 4″x6″ photo. I used strips of Zella Teal paper from Prima around the picture to frame it out and to make the surface even.
Once everything was glued in place, I added streaks of paint by using my finger and wiped away portions of it with a baby wipe.
I added stickers and chipboards with meaningful word stickers to frame the photo.
And to finish my design, I added Zella Teal flowers and highlights of silver foil.
I have filmed the complete process which you can watch below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
