May Play Layout inspiration.

Hello and again for today.

I have for you a mixed media layout which I designed for the new challenge blog


Here is the Link: https://www.artplaygroundblog.com/

Exciting that there is a new challenge blog.

Sharon a talented mixed media artist is the owner from this site.

She invites me for a guest design.. Thank you so much my dear friend.

Here my dear followers is the mood board.

All about the center...

I created for this first challenge a mixed media layout.

My May Challenge Monthly Tip:

First I am always looking for the perfect photo (the center of the layout).

The selection can by influenced by: my day-mood or my day-color

or my day-song....... or in this case the mood bord form the challenge blog.

For me the most important thing is  the background work.

As for the old Masters I prefer to start on a white paper.

Stamps and stencil with waterproof Ink is always my first step.

The photo is my guideline that means I put the photo on the paper over and over again,

 to control where I have to stamp, where I have to add color, where I have to work with the stencil.

The embellishment part is dependent from what I have designed in the background.

Sometimes I glue my photo directly on the paper with a title and done,

or I add laces, sisal, wire and and and ....

I wish everyone best luck for the May challenge.

There are awesome prizes to win.

Lindy`s, 7 Dots studio, Lemon Craft and Worth Products...

I used for this layout:

Archival Ink, Distress Ink, Acrylic Ink, 13@rts gold Ink, Ecoline Nr 100,

lots of leaves stamps, Chipboard ....

I hope you feel a little bit inspired.

Dear Sharon I would like to say thank you so much for

Have a nice day.
