Precious Memories with Rhonda

Wednesday greetings to you! It's Rhonda here today to host the blog.

I have a romantic inspired page in honor of Valentine's Day to share with you featuring the Primavera collection. The inspiration for this page is a silly photo from Facebook. I found the sentiment on it to be so true and wanted to celebrate the silly that is shared in our relationships. To me, having a great laugh with my loved ones is the best!


To begin my page, I applied a bit of modeling paste with a stencil, then added some mist splatters in coordinating teal, blues, gold and silver. After selecting my paper to mat the photo to, I knew I wanted to have nice texture on the page so I also added a bit of corrugate.


A bit of white chalk ink was applied to the corrugate and around my photo collage to provide a soft distressed appearance. I used a stencil brush to work the ink into the paper with a soft look. After I framed the collage, I knew I wanted to add this technique around the outer border as well.

The white Chipboard Tag Frame in a scalloped oval shape I cut apart and used in opposing areas to help create the visual triangle in my design. A bit of pearl paint was added in coral, mint and pink to blend with the color scheme.


A few details so you can see some of the textures within the layers. I started with the drywall tape, added mist and ink splatters, then the white chalk ink distressing, followed by the washi tape. A few accent die cuts from the papers are added as well.


One last view to show the layers and textures.
