Memories of You
By Charmane Sharp


This layout began with an idea for creating the Heart and evolved from 
there. I love when creative juices flow and you end up with a layout you 
love but not what you thought you were going to make when you began. 
Go with the flow of your creativity and see where it takes you.

Title- Memories of You
Chained Frames
Doily Clock Face
Hinges pack
Turkish Lattice Panel

The Doily Clock Face is a great focal point and looks amazing
painted with Pastel Watercolours, finished with some dry brushed
Gesso over the top. This is a perfect piece to reflect the moment in
time captured in the photo.

Creating this unique Heart embellishment was easy and looks really 
cool I think. I traced the Chained Heart on top of the Turkish Panel 
and cut it out to fit inside. Applied glue to the edges that touched the
heart and then applied Watercolours. I dry brushed White Gesso over 
the inside and Black Gesso over the Chained Heart to differentiate 
between them.

I painted the title with Black and Charcoal Watercolours and 
stamped with a  texture stamp in Black.

After Watercolouring the Hinges I inserted some Screw Brads for a 
realistic look. They add great details to the corners of my square paper.

By stitching on this layout i feel it gave it a more formal grunge feel.
I hope you can take inspiration from this layout and try out some 
Watercolour techniques of your own. Thanks for taking a look at my
masculine layout.

Until next time...
