Hi, guys! It’s day two of our week-long get together with Art Anthology, and I have to say that I absolutely LOVE working with their products! The project I have to share today is a layout of a photo of my parents at their wedding. This Christmas day will be their 40th anniversary. Which means either my mom doesn’t age or she is really bad at math because she swears she’s 21.
To start with, I used a foil doily with a snowflake pattern as a stencil and applied a layer of Art Anthology Sorbet gel paint in Frost. Then I added a thin coat of Splash Sorbet on top for extra sparkle. This left a great dimensional background when I removed the doily.
cut apart two Fanciful Frames since my photo was larger than the frames. I painted all of the pieces of frame with Tiger’s Eye Sorbet paint, smunching the brush around a bit to give it texture. After they were dry I arranged them around the photo and attached it to the layout with foam tape.
Next, I cut a length of sheer ribbon and stamped a flourish design on it using Sorbet paint in Red Velvet. The ribbon and the paint are almost the same color, so it made for a nice monotone type look.
I layered up a bunch of Prima florals with some gems and feathers along the side of the page and then nestled a little Basically Bare heart (complete with wings!) in the middle of it all.
The wings are covered with a random coating of Sorbet in Trolley Grey. To make the heart, I painted a medium thick coat of Tiger’s Eye Sorbet on the smallest of the chipboard hearts in the set. Before it had time to begin drying (which happens pretty fast, by the way) I pressed a pattern into the gel paint with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
You all just have to get some of these great Sorbets! Thanks so much visiting us on the blog today. Please be sure to stop by the Art Anthology site and see their amazing team and all of the great things they have to share.
