The third class I took at the Merly Impressions Retreat was designed and taught by Emilie Chamel. I chose to use this colourful photograph of my daughter and her friend relaxing and celebrating after finishing their three year Drama and Theatre Arts course at University.

To make the page we had a kit containing two sheets of white cardstock, a set of stamps from the Kaisercraft Elegance collection, two tubes of Kaisercraft acrylic paint, a selection of Kaisercraft paper blooms.

The watered down pant was flicked over the page and then an area painted on the second sheet from where the feathers and title were cut freehand!

The images were stamped in black ink then I coloured mine by watering down the paint further.  The photo was added raided up on foam pads. Then the paper blooms were arranged. I added some decorative pins, flat-backed gems and Stickles. The journalling is written straight onto the cardstock.

Very different to my usual pages, but I loved making this project with Emilie. She gave us lots of extra tips and hints too. Here are a few close-up photos:


 Here is Emilie's original layout:
