Mixed Media Monday - 2.13.17

Good morning!
Sandi created this amazing layout using a photo she took  of the holiday windows of the major department stores. This window at Bergdorf Goodmans was titled "The Book Club." 


Her base layer is Blue Fern Studios' Heartland Love Song Serenade. The colors were perfect for her photo.  She created it with the Main Kit, the Flower add-on, the Elements Kit, and the Color add-on. 
 
 
After preparing her background with stenciling and super heavy gesso, she added layers of the Heartland Love Notes paper, flowers, Kaisercraft ephemera and of course, the Blue Fern Studios Heartland chipboard which was covered in Black Gesso and then treated with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse from the Color Add-on. The Mousse was also used on her butterflies and applied to most of the flowers. 
she filled in my floral cluster with some Spanish moss and some green microbeads from her stash. 
 
 
Here is a good look at the Blue Fern chipboard. That mousse was a perfect  finishing touch for adding some character to the chippy. She combined some Blue Fern Heartland blooms (Main Kit) along with Prima flowers from the Flower add-on and tucked in the Baker's twine form the Kit.


Just another angle of the same corner with a bit more detail. She used some of the Kaisercraft ephemera to write her title, The Book Club. 
 
 
Here is a close up of the other corner where you can see the Kaisercraft wooden pieces and ephemera. She used a black photo mat to make my photo really pop and also use some green mist from my stash to bring focus and dimension to my photo. You'll notice that she used 2 of the same photo. One is simply tucked in as a layer .. mostly to hide a design on the paper that I didn't want to show. 
 
 
  She also used another of my sweet Petaloo blooms form the Flower add-on to use along with the Prima flowers. Again another wooden butterfly icon with mousse.
