Moving Day

Hi everyone
You know sometimes when you see a photo and you think what the ...?   I always think I'm average height at 5'6" - maybe I'm shrinking with age!   Photo with my wonderful (and very tall) son.

My colour palette was inspired by the gorgeous 13@rts Blue magnolia papers.   This is what I came up with. 

This layout had a bit of a confused start.   I started by mixing some Pearl Ex (which I thought was going to be gold but finished up being a dark brown) with some gel medium I have had in my stash for a while.   It was really thick and almost unworkable (Note to self - use your supplies!) I couldn't get it to move with my spatula and almost threw it away but instead used my finger to rub in through a Darkroom Door Stencil.  Also splodged a random bit in the right lower corner  so that's where my date went.
I then added some colour to the background using the plastic bag technique using Color Burst powders in Sepia and Burnt Umber, Lindy's Stamp Gang T-Bird Turquoise and Magical shaker in Guten Tag Teal, drying between each colour.    

I fussy cut some of the 13 @rts papers and inked the edges with Distress Oxide Gathered Twigs which I also used to colour a little muslin.

Layered it all up and added some beads with 13@rts soft gel medium, my title and I was done.

Thanks for looking
