ScrapMart: Journey

I've been dabbling in mixed media with a little bit of FarmHouse Paper Company (Fair Skies Collection) to come up with this...

Journey by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned Paper, Chipboard, Flower and Stickers: FarmHouse Paper Company (Fair Skies Collection); Ink Mists: Tattered Angels (Glimmer Mist: Patina, Midnight Blue & Dragonfly/Chalkboard: Apricot); Texture Paste: Golden (Molding Paste); Stencil: The Crafter's Workshop (Clouds); Paint: Ranger (Blank Canvas/Claudine Hellmuth); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever); Photo Corners: SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L

First I sprayed a combination of Patina, Midnight Blue and Dragonfly Glimmer Mists and a touch of Chalkboard Apricot for the background color. Using the Clouds stencil, I added molding paste and after it dried, I painted it white to highlight the texture more.


Then I spray a ton of Patina Glimmer Mist to make it drip at the bottom - it has a beautiful sheen when dried.



I placed patterned papers, chipboard pieces and layered embellishments all from the Fair Skies Collection to the page...



The last I made the double mat out of some more wonderful Fair Skies papers with a touch of my favorite SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L photo corners in white for my picture of my oldest and my husband riding on the paddle boat - 13 years ago! WOW, time flies! LOL!!


Here's a second look...

 

I loved how this turned out - makes me happy :)
Thanks for visiting!!
