It's my turn today to share my April inspirations here on the 2Crafty blog. I don't know why, I seem to gravitate towards purple this month. My first layout is called «Treasure» and it showcase an old picture of my father when he was about 16 years old.
I used clear gesso to cover the whole background paper. Then, I used two shades of metallic acrylic paint. When everything was dry, I used black archival ink to stamp some numbers and some checkered patterns. I finally used black modeling paste through a square stencil.
To anchor my composition, I used some of the 6'' Clock Face Frames, which I embossed with purple embossing powder.
Here and there, under my clusters, I scattered some of the Checkerboard Clumps pieces, that were embossed in black.
At the end, I used some micro beads to my background, and some embellishments.
My title piece, the word «Treasure», is from the Mini Word Set 1. I embossed it in copper.
