Gingham dreams

Hi There,

Today I am sharing a canvas featuring a favourite photo of my youngest son
Wrapped in red gingham on my best friends lap.

The background of this piece was inspired by the fantastic creations of Emma Williams.

It is hard to see in the photos but the background is made up of layers of distress paint & distress crayons in Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood & Broken China.

 Various red & heart washi tape & white gauze applied.
Embossed texture with a checkerboard stencil highlighted with distress crayon.

Random stamping with Watering Can Archival Ink & a mesh stamp.

The photo matted on a black tag & small Tim Holtz ephemera added.
Scrap FX embellishments painted with black gesso & highlighted with white & blue markers.
Splatters & Doodling around the other ephemera too.

These gorgeous Scrap FX chipboards
were used for the title & the feathers. 

The dreamcatcher is a black silhouette.
It has such fine detail!

Hope you are inspired to incorporate a favourite photo into your art work.
Cheers for now,
