I often do a layout over a few days. It just isn't feasible to do a project start to finish, that is if I want to sleep. Tonight, I added a few more elements to the family layout I started in "page breakdown part 1".
For the title I did a Pinterest search for a family quote that fit the affirmation challenge requirement and was fitting for the picture. I used some Canvas letter stickers by Little Yellow Bicycle I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby for word "family".
I moved the corner piece of pumpkin colored paper to a different angle. It just seemed to work better for me. I have 2 containers of Gesso. One is regular and the other I added some cornstarch to so its more like a texture paste. Using this fun stencil, I added some of the Gesso paste with a spatula.
Sticking with the rule of 3. I added some stenciled Gesso to 3 different areas. I also like to keep the 3 in a visual triangle. If you draw imaginary lines from one like element to another, you would have a triangle. This is a good guideline to maintain balance.
Now it needs to sit overnight for the Gesso to dry. Tomorrow, I will add some color to the Gesso and maybe a border around the page to pull it all together.
What do you think? Do you prefer I show the process or just the finished project? I would really appreciate your input.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
