Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new layout featuring the I Wish collection. I chose an old photo of my father struggling to repair his bike on a snowy day. I think that the photo was taken in the 50’s.
First I primed the background with clear gesso. Then I added the first design with a colorful Archival ink and a stencil. I stamped with a black Archival ink randomly around my design.
I mixed a metallic acrylic paint with 3D Gloss Gel to add a second design. I let dry before adding some colors.
While the background was drying, I die-cut some gears in a heavyweight watercolor paper. I painted them with the Rust Effect pastes and added a light touch of the metallic paint.
I glued all the elements and splattered some white ink.
To finish the layout I added some micro beads and mica flakes.
