Challenge 23 DT Post for Creative Artiste "Young Futures"

Hello Crafty Friends and Followers

It is that time again ...Challenge 23 for 

Our Awesome Sponsor this month is

So proud of these two young hard working adults
that dedicate their time together.
They love the beach and life and are very giving in all ways
so it is a pleasure for me to mirror such dedication
by devoting this months post to them.
It is also likely that next months post following special
celebrations will feature the same duo.

In the end, I used quite a few goodies from my
Scrapmatts stash but with so much to choose from it is hard
to restrain ones inspiration...So why try and limit it...

Unforgettable Memories

To start with I used texture paste to apply triangles to
the canvas board and once dry, by turning the ink pad
upside down and rubbing over the stencilled texture
coloured it with Victoria Velvet.

Over this I stencilled with one of the NEW A4 Circles Stencils and
applied a clear gesso over it so the underlying colours were not obscured.

With Brilliance Inks & Glimmermist I added colour to the background
as well as the numerous chipboard pieces.
The central highlight of the canvas is a photo that I cut to fit the
Ornate Frame 01 which was also coloured with ink.

Once all the elements were coloured and positioned as I
wanted them they were glued.
With the exclusion of the photo, the entire canvas was dusted with
Gold Perfect Pearls using a paintbrush.
This made the whole canvas glow.

It didn't take me long to find yet another perfect title for this
creation from the extensive selection of Scrap Words and
splitting this top & bottom framed the central piece.
