I started by chopping up some Finnabair papers and gluing to my journal page and then pressed Liquitex Heavy Gel through my favourite stencil.
When dry, I brushed Dark Bronze mica powder over it; added some padded squares and sprayed areas with Ranger mica sprays, allowing them to run down.
Next I selected part of a poem that talks about the rain, autumn colours, moonlight and crystal. I added a family photo which is also reflective,some ribbon, a few bark hearts and some buttons. The above stage was a breeze, but arranging my composition and deciding upon final elements took hours and a nights sleep!
I had to simplify the mounting of the verse and photo as my background was so busy.
So, here is my first entry on the Countryview Crafts challenge! Alison Bomber, you are an inspiration!
