If you missed the first part of this series, you might want to start reading here to know what I'm talking about. :)
Ok, so today I'll share another layout. This time I had to make an auto-portrait. The page had to represent my style and talk about me. Here's what I made:
For these little squares, I'm almost shy to say that this was a cardstock that I had pull out of the trash can. I had been working on a layout and wasn't happy with my background…. I don't even remember what I used for the paint. Probably a simple watercolor kit for children.
Notice the stitching on a couple of the squares? I had stitched in a circle on the entire background. When I cut it apart, I made sure that small pieces of that stitching would show. I had also used some of the Heidi Swapp Color Magic golden spray. I love the effect of the brilliance.
On the squares I'm talking about small special facts about me. The subjects include: traveling dreams, my biggest fear, my passion, my dreams, I'm happy when, I'm proud of myself when…, I'm sad when…, my wishes for my daughters.
I rememeber I had just stocked up on the brand new Heidi Swapp products. :) I wasn't cheap on the layering. ;) And the fine golden lines are a foil that I sticked to some lines I had made with a glue roller pen. Same thing for the golden dots.
I wanted to make something that hadn't yet been seen. And so I began to form my style… :) I can't say that this is very innovative, but for me it was all new and different than what I was used to create.
I still love the small watercolor pieces.
Thanks for looking!
Stay tunes for the rest.
