"Paradise Found" by Amy Voorthuis

Good morning lovely 2Crafty friends,

It's a lovely day to visit the blog, for today I have another layout to share with you. Since I am in the summer mood I made a layout with a picture of my sweet cousin Jaime in some tropical place. On this layout I did a lot of mixed media like using crackle paste, plaster paste, stenciling & spraying I also did that on my beautiful 2Crafty chipboard. 

Paradise Found: 

  2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Fine Word Set 1
Paradise Found
Circle Word Tag Set 1
Intricate Seahorses
Seashells Set 2
Palm Leaves Set
Leafy Shrub Set 3

First I painted all the chipboard pieces with white gesso, then I used some rust paste on the Leafy Shrub Set 3 which I then painted with two different shades of acrylic paint & waxes. The seahorse was treated with some starburst spray and some crackle paste {the translucent kind}. On the "Paradise Found" phrase I added two different embossing powder because I didn't had the color I wanted.

Then I also treated it with same crackle paste as the seahorse after that I added some wax on the word found to make it a different color the word "forever" was placed on the phrase that one was painted with rust paste. In the end I added some spray and art stones.

Thank you so much for your visit today and if you would like to see more of my work please visit here:
