Laura Rumble – Checking Out The Bees Knees

Hi Folks!  Laura here again using another Paige Evans floral pre cut.  Paige does floral so well it’s always a pleasure to create with them. This one is Flower 2 in the shop.

I started off with a layer of clear gesso on a sheet of white cardstock.  I then took some lemon yellow brusho and a water spritzer and had some fun.  I also made a panel of darker yellow brusho on a scrap of cardstock.  To get the darker colour I used more powder and less water.  I sprinkled some salt on to the wet paper which encourages texture to form as the piece dries.

I used some bronze paper and the darker yellow piece to back the centre of the flower.  I then mounted the flower on some foam and centred it on the yellow background… well that was the aim.  It wasn’t quite central and it was stuck fast but we’ll fix that later.

I mounted the photo on the scraps of yellow and adhered it to one side of the flower.  I used tiny brown alpha stickers to add my title.

To address the wonkiness I trimmed a bit from each edge of the 12×12 and mounted it on a sheet of kraft.  I trimmed freehand with scissors rather than using a guillotine.  The lines were cut deliberately squiffy this time so remounting it crooked couldn’t be an issue!

I added a little tag to the photo and some journalling to the bottom.  I then skipped around the page with a twinkle pen adding little details of sparkle.   I do like the little tiny details.

See you next time!
