Embrace the Journey - Kristy Abela

Welcome Dusty FANattics

I did this project as a photo challenge....

 I loved every photo in this set and none of them were really stand outs! So I used them all to create a filmstrip of images to show how much fun we had the morning we sent Aksel off to High School!!




Using White gesso to partially prime my cardstock I applied Distress Spray to the surface I wanted the cardstock to both absorb and resist the colour. Using some chalk paint to darken the top and diluted it to create shadow in the gaps of the Chipboard. 



I love the look of this - Stone Washed Denim!! #childofthe80's



For texture I used Rust pastes to age the piece. 



I gently rubbed the oxide pads over Dusty Attic Corrugated Cardstock in our school colours (yes, poor boy... I went to the same school) and framed the images with a touch of white gesso in lieu of a matt.



I created a background of plasterers tape, Stamping and Stenciling to layer my chipboard onto. I used some metallic paint from and painted the wood veneers Blue and the Industrial Globes in yellow. 



Here is a close up with the prills and paint splatters.



These are the images from the opposite page.



Without making it too obvious... I worked the date into the embellishments!
Thanks for looking!
