Hello Scrappers ! Do you have photos that are really special and need a decorative display that will stand the test of time ? The best way is to add them to canvas based layouts which can be framed or put into a shadow box.
My daughter Nura has been dancing since 4 years old and as she grew into a teenager, decided it was what she wanted to do. This photo is special as her teacher had choreographed a dance for an audition into Singapore’s School of the Arts (SOTA) Dance and as well as for National Day celebrations at the community centre the Dance school was at.
The background was created on canvas with Distress Paints, Vicki Boutins’ Iridescent Glaze and Ranger’s Grit Paste. I had made a mistake in the background and found that Grit Paste had enough opacity to cover up the canvas. The texture of the paste added an interesting surface after it dried which contrasted really well with the embellishments.
The details are in Maya Road’s Burlap Flower and Prima blooms. The background and paper are in pink, peach and cream tones to match the flowers.
Sizzix rose die cuts in pale grey cardstock give subtle layers. When the subjects of the layouts are young kids, no matter your style, keep the look light with a fresh feel and light coloured die-cuts add dimension without any heaviness.
