Hi gorgeous friends!
It’s Olga Ravenskaya here with my new project using Lindy’s Sprays, Magicals, Squirts and Powders.
I’ve created boho style frame with a charming photo of my friend’s daughter on her wedding day. It was a sunny spring day, all the trees in the garden were decorated with dream catchers and ribbons, so I’ve tried to express in my work a feeling of youth, beauty and love.
As usual, I began with a choice of color combo – pinks and greens were a perfect match for my idea. Later I added a beautiful yellow and pale lilac as complementary colors.
The frame was originally of a dull brown color and I wanted to make it softer, more attractive, by adding shades of green.
To start, I needed to make a base for further coloring, so I mixed Antique Gold and Antique Bronze Shakers with white gesso to get a light-beige base.
Cover all the frame and let it dry in a natural way.
Then I grabbed tree colors of Squirts – Emerald Eh?! , Maple Syrup Bronze and Beaver Tail Brown – for painting the frame.
I added colors using brushes and mixing colors with each other.
Here is a result after applying the second layer of Squirts – I’m totally satisfied! The color of the frame turned out soft, luxurious and with beautiful color transitions.
While it was drying I altered metal leaves with embossing powders. Firstly I applied partially Byzantine Bronze EP and then added Ghouly Goblin Green.
Look at the pick below – now the leaves perfectly match the frame!
I also added the same powders to the edges of the frame – to add more texture and shimmer.
It’s so difficult to catch this effect by a camera, but if you look closely you can see how melted powders highlight the edges of the frame!
To continue I attached several strips of different lace and ribbons.
The girl on my photo is so young and beautiful – I wanted just to highlight this feeling with splashes of color.
So I randomly tinted lace with Chateau Rose, Salt Water Taffy and Luminous Sprays just spraying from the bottles on the upper side.
For the bottom, I used Luscious Lime and my favorite green – Edelweiss Moss Green.
Little tip: firstly slightly moisturize the lace and ribbons with water to achieve beautiful splashes of colors.
To create a contrast I covered all the chippies with pale-colored powders – Pop Rock Purple, Chateau Rose, Oom Pah Pah Pink and Purely White.
At the very end, after gluing all the elements, I tinted flowers, art stones, a small bird and a narrow silk ribbon with Edelweiss Moss Green, Salt Water Taffy and Luminous Lemon Sprays.
Let me show you some close-ups as a little inspiration.
