Be the Light-Mixed Media Layout-with Elena O

"Be the Light" Layout

Hello BoBunny friends. Elena is here today.

August is one of my favorite months, and I like it for the colors it is filled with - mostly bright colors like tan, gold, yellow and  orange.

However I love these colors in my daily life and for my today's post it was a bit of fun to use them for my layout.


  I used Faith collection and it is bold and bright, full of expression.


  I started with creating the layers over my 2 pictures, and since my youngest holds the large ball in his hands, it has determined the shape for the most part of my embellishments


  I cut out some of the scalloped circles from the papers, as well as some doodled flowers.


  Then I followed the circle theme and stenciled some of them with the glitter paste


I also played with coloring some spaces with Pentart acrylic paints.


But the main focus was this light bulb, and the phrase within it.

  1. This is a gorgeous layout! Sometimes a lot of detailed layering overwhelms the photo, but not here - it really is perfect! And I really love your addition of the little understated phrase, "You are the center of my universe."
