This layout is made with my August kit from my kit switch with Zima. At the first glimpse of the kit I thought it was quite dark and “shabby chic like”. But then I saw the red border and I saw that the kit was brilliant. The combination of the drab colors and the vibrant red is awesome, I think. The dark pink frame is made using the back side of one of the papers.
On the background I used gesso on a template, Pan Pastels and some acrylic paint. The small red dots/flowers are made of the leftovers from the borders and some doodling.
When writing this post I am on a conference in a Swedish castle. Both the castle, the view over the sea and the weather are marvelous and I just had to show a picture of “my new home”.
Finally a reminder to those of you who haven’t joined the challenge I’m hosting at ARTastic this month. There’s still some time left to get your fingers dirty with different mediums and have some fun!!! Take a look at it here.
Thanks for looking! I really enjoy reading all your lovely comments! Thanks!!
