Let's think a bit outside the box today... what can we use instead?
We can take a paper or cardboard background to make it easier, but it can also be changed for canvas or fabric or acrylic!
My first idea was taking ribbons and laces - composed with molding paste and stiching. Glimmer mists give it gorgeous shades of colours and buttons and flowers (also fabric ones) give the layout a beautiful final touch.
The second idea is stamping, and misting again. The background stamps create a nice looking pattern and the bird ones are a nice accent in the composition. I also added some rub-ons and transparent elements combined together - and a bit of stiching of course!
Here's the effect - quick and easy!
Other ideas are fabrics and gauze, paint, sprays, inks and alcohol inks, masking... hope you got inspired!
