I've used an adorable photo of Jessica holding a flower and the perfect chipboard title "Its your smile that captures my heart".
I tried a few different things for this page - stretching out of my comfort zone!
First I glued (with gel medium) a selection of chipboard flourishes on my page - after considering photo placement. Then I painted white gesso all over my page. I added a stencil and texture paste. Once this had thoroughly dried I sprayed 3 different Tattered Angels chalkboard sprays across the page as well as splats of the same sprays. I dried each colour layer as I went.
I sprayed the title and the Wendy frame with black ColorShine. The other chippies were first painted with white gesso then painted with the same sprays as was used on the background.
I layered my photo over a tag (with hidden journalling) and some black Prima wire then added clusters of chipboard and flower embellishments.
I love the textured look of the chippies as part of the background.
The chipboard frame highlights the face in the photo but doesnt distract from or hide the rest of the photo.
