The photo is a phone picture of my oldest son sharing his sundae with his Grandpa. It was too sweet not to hope for a decent picture. I have fussy cut the photo for this layout.
I added a lot of background masking and gesso to this layout. For detailed recipe please follow this link to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Gallery.
The new stamp set has wonderful feathers, a nest, birds and sentiments. So versatile for cards, layouts or altered items.
I used the Garden Grid stencil from TCW with black gesso in the background. I dry brushed white gesso all over the page to mute the pattern but still allow it to show through. The birds on a wire stamp with this collection is perfect for background stamping. I used it by sponging on black gesso and it gave a nice shabby look for this project.
A close up of the wonderful embossing I was able to achieve with Native American,Candlelight and Vintage embossing powders from the store.
