Hello! Sorry for the late posting of my CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration layout for this week. Here's our case file:
And my layout:
I've been wanting to try Faber-Castell Gelatos for a while now and finally got hold of some. Love them! I used them to paint the sun and some hills and added water for a watercolour effect. The flowers and dots were added on top by smearing molding paste through two different stencils. I also did some stamping of course.
The sun was made with an orange and a yellow Gelato. I stamped a word on top with alphabet stamps and one of my favourite bird stamps. The little bird on the branch were die cut from patterned paper.
I wanted to mimic the trees on his shirt, and die cut a small tree from the Halloween Shadows die. The leaves are cut with wonderful Susan's Garden Forsythia die (for a tutorial on these flower dies, check out this post of mine). I die cut the leaves from paper that had been inked yellow and orange.
Thank you for the visit!
