2 Layouts - Inspiration of July with Kelly Foster

Hi everyone, Kelly here. I hope you are all having a great day today, thank you for stopping in!
I have two layouts to share this month.
First up is a page completely inspired by my photo...

"Be Free"

I decided to "divide" the layout as my photo is, with "water" along the top and "rocks" along the bottom. I started out with the Faces of Spring "Hair In The Wind" paper, perfect backdrop for this type of photo. I slathered on some Ayeeda Gesso, and over that some of the Water inks. I added a strip of torn corrugated cardboard, and atop that a strip of the "Strong Feelings" paper. I did some stenciling and then sprayed generously with the Pearl Brown Mist. 

I added in a few bits from the Faces of Spring embellishment kit..the glass pieces and the beads, along with some pretty white roses, decorative twigs, and more.

"I Love You"

This next one, I went back to the All Is Love collection, for some pretty girly colors. I created my own mist in an empty spray bottle, using a bit of the Sky Blue Water Ink, along with a bit of the Green Pearl Mist to make that light teal color. I have also watered down some pink ink to make a light pink spray to suit my lighter colored pages.

The masking was done with Ayeeda Modeling Paste, outlined in pen, and in some areas I sponged on some watered down gesso to mute the background a bit so as not to distract too much from my adorable photo.
