Hi Friends :)
I'd like to share a Mixed Media Layout titled "beautiful" today. The sketch and colors of my layout are influenced by the Dusty Attic Moodboard for July. I loved those colors :)
I found this really beautiful and powerful image of a dancer with fire coming out from her. So decided to make a layout around it.
I altered the Dusty Attic Chipboards by embossing them, to add color, dimension and shine :) the feathers were attached to the dancer's photo to depict flying, she almost looks like a modern angel to me! The paradise bird chipboard was embossed in multiple colors to add interest. I added thread at some places for texture. At the bottom of the photo, I've added strings of thread and beads, I think it almost looks like a dream catcher :)
I thought about what secondary sentiments to add and then decided to add words associated with true beauty; #authentic, #amazing by stamping and genuine, artful, soulful and creative with stickers.
I've done stenciling with distress inks and background stamping. Layers of colors were added using acrylic paints and zig markers. In the end, I created some splatter of gesso and ink.
Here are a few close-up photos of the layout:
