This layout was made in honor of my son, Lee. He was about a month old when these photos were taken, and was taking his first official trip to see his paternal grandparents and to meet his aunt, uncle and cousins. It was a very happy time for my husband and me.
I used technique after technique to do this layout , and had a lot of fun getting goopy! First of all, I tore the paper circles and curled them. Before adhering them to the layout, I applied a thin coat of gesso in the area around the circles to create interest. Using a stencil and modeling paste I added more texture to the area surrounding the circle. After adhering the curled paper circles to the layout, I painted a little gesso onto the curled paper and pretty much everywhere else before discovering that I was obsessed with gesso!
