Deep in Thought -featuring the Antligen Collection

Posted by Jennifer Snyder

14 June, 2013 - ,

Happy Friday.  Jennifer Snyder here sharing my work on a Friday.   This piece uses the summery Antligen Collection.  Summer is such a short and cherished time for many of us who live in places that get snow.  brrrr.  For now,  I shall celebrate some melting of the snow by pulling out Antligen.

This is a photo I snapped of my niece a few years ago.  It’s summery and dreamy feeling like the collection.  My niece is a beautiful young lady so I wanted to surround her in feminine softness.

I used a few different pieces from the collection.  Featured here are the following: Antligen – Naturen Doftar (as my delicate background piece) , Pingst (as the accent strips of paper), and Vardagjamning (as the circle).

From there, I embellished with masks and molding pastes and gesso.

Here you can see that I sort of slapped molding paste on my page to frost the flowers. The image below is also a great close up of my masking with molding paste.  You can get a better feel for how delicate this page is in real life.

I tucked a few small pieces of an old book here and there.  The book is from 1895 – very old.  The pages are yellowed already with no distressing.  Time did that for me.

This is gift for my sister.  She can gaze upon it when she misses her baby girl who will be setting off for University in August.

Thanks for sharing a piece of the day with Maja Design, where we all anxiously await the newest LIMITED Collection, Sofiero.
