Live the Life you Dreamed



I love this sentiment from the Artistic Outpost Kudzu Kafe stamp set, here I've paired it up with the sweet children from Think and Wonder and stamps from Serenity and Generation Redux.

I created the monoprint background using the Gelli Arts Plate, DecoArt Paint (Mixed Media Codmium Orange Hue/American Multi Surface Satin Coastal Waters/Flamingo/Cottonball) and a Number Stencil.

Once the background was dry, I stamped the flowers using an image from the Serenity plate, and the bits of collage using a stamp from the Generation Redux plate.  I stamped the collage piece on scraps and add pieces throughout the background panel.  The children were stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock and cut from the background, sponged and adhered in place with DecoArt Gel Medium. The sentiment was stamped in Black on scraps of the mono printed background, sponged and adhered with Gel Medium.  Using the Dottie Stencil from Just a Trace, I applied DecoArt Mixed Media Gesso to a few of the circles for added interest.
