Since this month challenge is to scraplift my dear friend Steffi Ried and we both share a special fondness for transparency elements, I had to create something see through. I started with a picture of my grandma and my son, a clear acetate sheet and an acrylic pen.
I drew some flowers on that acetate sheet, cautious not to draw a flower on my grandma's face. As a guideline I used the beautiful actetate sheet from Paige Evans Pick-Me-Up Collection.
Here are some pictures of the finished sheet on a darker background for a better vision.
Then I thought about the background for that acetate sheet. I liked the white background but I also made a colored background with some light watercolors. It looks great and I realy like the contrast between the watercolors and the white pen.
But in the end I decided to use the white background for this layout, because I put some watercolors on the component part of this layout, where my little depiction is. Some stickers and a die cut word are the only embellishments I used on this layout.
Now I need to make more of this acetate - acrylic pen - combination. I have visions of this in my Project Life album and I definitely need more of these pens in other colors. Gold would be perfect.
