My grand daughters two favourite things are purple and her baby brother so I thought that this would be the perfect photo for this challenge.
I began my layout by applying Mont Mante modelling paste over a brickwall stencil (from Kaszazz) to several places on my textured 12"x12" white page ( the photo has given the paper a purple hue but it is actually white), after it dried I sprayed sections with Ranger Dylusions Ink Spray Crushed Grape ranging from light to heavy coverage. To reintroduce white to the page I stamped dots and embossed them white; using this technique I found it added shine and texture.
Using the stencil again I reapplied some modelling paste to the lower brick stencilling and dried it with a heat gun until it puffed up giving another dimension to the page. Adding water to some Jo Sonja Dioux Purple artist paint I used a small paint brush to place more colour between the bricks and encouraged it to wash downwards by adding more water whilst holding the paper vertically.
Embellishments that I added included: Kaszazz flowers that I added colour (white and purple Jo Sonja artist paints) and brads to the centres, a chipboard butterfly I embossed white and a small love heart. I handmade 2 tags using a heart stamp with black crafters ink , a dot stencil with white modelling paste and the black crafters ink and white ink pens to define the heart stamp. I found the perfect ribbon to make the 3rd tag that had the words I felt perfectly described are the ways that Imi shows her little brother Zander how much she loves him, I used the Diox purple watered down paint to soften the edges of the ribbon and complement the other tags.
I used my favourite background stamp to tie the background together and a square stitch stamp to form frames for the letters of my grand kids I stamped onto the page with perfect medium (Kaszazz) and then embossed white. I finished off the photo with backing onto a distressed edged piece of grape card added white corner framelits to two corners and then placed it onto 2 pieces of distressed white cheese cloth.
