Hello Monday - hello you!
Today I am sharing my second take on SATW's August challenge which you can find HERE
This time I have not used the sketch, although I was inspired the circular elements from it in my background work.
I have used soft colours from my moodboard - pinkish peachy, white and teal. I drew inspiration from the white sugar dusting of the cakes and the glitter from the bling.
The khaki and yellow floral papers are from Kaiser Craft's collection "Sweet Pea". The background was created on an older pinkish creamish very subtly patterned paper from Pink Paislee. Stash raiding you know :)
The photo is not my own, I found it on internet and was captivated by how the rays of sunlight were so beautifully photographed. That's what inspired the title of my page.
Such a shame that the glitter effect doesn't photograph at all. All the flowers and the lace have a delish sheer shimmer of very fine silver glitter.
I started by masking the big floral doily pattern from KaiserCraft with matte gel medium and then followed up with a misting bonanaza in Gold, Patina, Banana Pudding chalk, Sunflower, Mr Huey's Opaque White and another subtle pattern masked in gesso.
Et voilà there it - The Last Rays!
