I am up on the Berry71Bleu blog here to share my take on this months Mood Board. Kay created a gorgeous board.
So I decided to make a gift for my Mother for Mothers Day.
I had this idea rollling around in my head for ages and so decided to go ahead and create it.
I used an old book, which I first stuck down onto the canvas and then altered the book with gesso, paints, stamps, papers and blooms.
I used the gorgeous Graphic 45 Place in Time papers.
The resin heart is Prima, which I coloured with distress paint.
The chipboard rounds and little Scarab beetle is Umwow.
The chipboard leaves are Celebr8 and the blooms Petaloo.
Here's a side view of the book.
The gesso acts like glue and so running the brush along the pages, made most of them stick.
I also used quite a bit down the middle of the book, which when dried, kept the book open.
I arranged the flowers cascading down the middle of the book and then onto the pages.
This project really came together so easily and was so enjoyable to create.
I really hope my Mother likes it and can put it somewhere nice.
I also created a little card, which I will put between the pages.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super evening!
