Post 226: Mixed Media Layout- Friends

Hi folks!

How are you doing ?
Today, I'd like to share a Mixed Media Layout titled Friends.
This is 12 by 12 inches in size.
I was inspired by the photo of the 2 little ones walking hand and hand and decided to make a layout with it. It signifies friendship and a beautiful happy day spent with friends.
There are mostly butterflies and flowers on this layout with the color scheme: white, black and lavender.
The base is white cardstock on which I have done watercoloring with gansai tambi colors and stencil work with distress oxides.
Then, did some background stamping for interest.
Further, added stamped (on canson watercolor paper), watercolored and fussy cut images in layers.
I've tried to create texture with multiple layers and patterns.
In the end, few splatters were created with watered down white gesso and inks.
I've used the following Altenew stamps here: Bamboo Rose, Floral Frame and Fresh Freesia

Here are a few photographs of the layout:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

1. White with 1 July Challenge- Lavender Lane (I was inspired by the color and flowers)
2. Altenew Sketch Challenge #3 (I was inspired by the sketch)

Thanks for your time!
Love reading your comments :)
Stay Blessed.
