Imagine


I haven't created a scrapbook page in ages but I do love making imaginative pages with my grand-nephew. Once you cut out the image you must then imagine a background that supports the photo, the more creative the better. 
 ( You can see all the pages I've made under the tab above
marked Peirson's grand adventures if you want. )

So my method may be a little different:
 I outlined all my stencils with a waterproof pen and then either painted them in with the inks/mediums or sewed over the outlines and then cut them out and then adhered them to the page. 


Since I knew that gel medium would act as a resist I painted in all the words and (stamped) clouds so that they would stay white and then sprayed the page with the inks.

I used the embossing powder for the bird and colored her in with the spray inks much like you would do with watercolors.

Using the same method for the leaves and the branch I painted them on a separate piece of watercolor paper which I cut out after sewing an outline around them. I also added some extra leaves and glued them on top of the original set from the stencil design.

Thank you for visiting and good luck!

What a lucky nephew! I love the idea of finding the picture first and then making a background. A whole other way of thinking. Thank you for the inspiration.

Wonderful page.
The background is muted so

really pop. The stitched
leaves are a fun addition.
