Hello chickadees! Well, I don't know how likely it is that I'll get my foundations all done in time for the new month, but I'll do my best. At least I have the cover completed now. Here it is.
I started with white gesso (took about 4 coats to fully cover it and almost an entire container of gesso)
Next, using this design from Silhouette, I cut a mask and painted the design in grey. But that turned out too bold for my tastes so I added two more coats of gesso over the top of that to make it very light.
Next, I made a mask of triangles and misted a border of those along the opening edge. Again, it was darker than I preferred, so this time I misted using Studio Calico Mister Huey Calico White mist.
Then I cut out this frame from the Silhouette store using some Crate paper from the Random collection.
Layer and play to end up with the final result you see below.
There you have it! Wish me luck on the foundation pages.
