This Is Where OUR Story Begins

Hi everyone! I'm back again to share a super quick mixed media layout I made yesterday for someone dear to my eldest girl. She is an English teacher who loves all her students dearly and teach them with lots of passion and patience. The kind of teacher any students would like to have.
For this layout, I used combination of Heidi Grace designed paper for the background and Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pad for layering. I always like to use different element to my project. First I gesso-ed the page where I wanted the layering to be and applied modeling paste through a stencil.
I wanted to make some flowers to match the inspirational mood board so I gathered a piece of metallic brown paper, different size of flower punch and rhinestones for the purpose. That was the last touch on this layout before I give it to the recipient on the same day. 
As I mentioned earlier, I was inspired by this lovely vintage mood board at Berry71bleu. I end up using all the colors in the panels, added lace and painted the frames with watercolors after applying a coat of gesso and modeling paste. 
 I always use a sketch for my layout and Bumaga-Maraka presents pretty sketch to work with.
 I am so glad the recipient loves her layout so much. It was such a joy to see her excitement when she looked at it in amazement. I feel so appreciated and such an honor {smile}. It is such a bliss to make someone happy.
I hope you like this project today and will share two canvas projects in the next couple of days. Thank you for dropping by and leaving me sweet comments.
Take care and have a sweet weekend.

Hugs and smiles,
