My Brother

I decided to create my own background using mixed media and the colours of the July challenge for Scrap the boys. This is my first attempt at mixed media and I am pretty chuffed with the results.
I began by using a variety of the gelato orange and yellow tones which I slightly melded with a damp brush. I then added a pieces of lace, ribbon, paper, washi tape, doilies, tissue paper and gyprock tape to create texture. This was then sealed with a coat of gel medium. I added some masked dots with texture paste and sprinkled them with two tones of orange embossing powder and dried with then heat gun. I light mist with Heidi Swap  Rose, Peach and Citron colour shine completed the background. The papers are from Basic Greys May 2010 Page of the Month Kit.
