It's a Dream with Athanasia!

Monday, November 10, 2014

Hello FD friends! Athanasia here today to share a layout about a dream I had since I was a little girl. I love everything about ballet: watching ballerinas dancing, the costumes, the music... Unfortunately I didn't have the  chance to learn ballet and now it's only a dream never came true. But the good thing is that my 5 years old daughter takes ballet classes and I love watching her dancing!
Anyway, this is my page:

I used a white paper and created my own background with mists, a mask, stamps and gesso. First I glued some paper strips on top and bottom of the page, I applied gesso and then made some masking and stamping with several stamps. After that, I placed the photo in position and added only a few embellishments: a chipboard scroll corner, some flowers, buttons and sequins. To add more interest to my page, I broke some buttons in pieces and glued them on the page. As a final mixed media touch I added a lot of gesso splashes (that's really a fun thing to do - I love splashes:)

One more thing I love doing on my pages is doodling with my permanent pen. I also wrote quite a few times the sentence 'am I dreaming?' and finally I placed the tittle at the bottom of the page.

Well, I hope you liked my page and got some ideas!
Thank you for stopping by today, I wish you a happy crafty week everyone!
