Peacock

Do you love color? I do, and here’s a page that I think shows it. I used the beautiful Door to Atlantis Colorways paper from Paper House as my background. I love how the blue paper not only frames and highlights the page, but also creates a soft, peaceful mood.

To make this layout I sponged on gesso in order to prepare the background for the paint and textures I planned to use. I put the photo on watercolor paper with some foam core board in between to add dimension. I applied texture paste with three different stencils. I brushed on a layer of watercolors, then randomly dabbed on gold mica powder with my finger. I added more paint, and penciled in some areas with watercolor pencils. I glued on micro beads with glossy accents, and dabbed on another layer of gold mica.

I drew out some of the colors and details of the photo onto the paper behind it, and also used a blue butterfly to add visual interest. I tried to restrain myself from adding more items to the page, there was already a lot of detail in the photo.

I love the shimmery Gatsby Accent Pack pieces!

I used glass glitter, tulle,and a stamped peacock image, for more texture. Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
