Simple Pleasures with Jelissa

Hello 13@rts fans!

How are all of you today? I'm excited for so many reasons - one of them being my first collection with 13@rts has just been released (yay!). You can find them in the store very soon, after we have revealed the rest of the new releases for this season.

Of course the other reason I'm so happy is that it's my turn to share on the blog with you a creation. This time I finally found the energy for a layout and it's one of my eldest and his papa when he was just a few months old. 

This was created with the Cozy Evening collection (Hot Chocolate edition) - the browns and beige are very therapeutic and soothing for some reason and I just have to use it for this sweet picture of the both of them. To add on more color in my background, I first created a soft background wash with matt paints in Peach and Caramel, followed by the darker Pearl Mist (Brown) and Chalk Mist (Dark Brown).

Some close-ups:

I kept my layering to a minimum this time, focusing on the textures I can create with modeling paste, glitter strips, microspheres and glass beads. The chipboard I altered with a mix of gel medium and distress glitter.

I altered the leaves by applying a mixture of medium and glitter strips, then sealing it with a layer of liquid medium. 

After everything is almost dry, I touched up with drips of Chalk Mist (Dark Brown) and Pearl Mist (Brown), as well as splatters of Splash! acrylic ink in both Black and White.
