Our family is having a reunion soon, and we are each bringing pictures to it of family members who are no longer with us.   I'm bringing one of my Grandparents.  This is a picture from their 50th Wedding Anniversary.
This is made on a canvas.  I used some watercolor paints and Gelatos on the background.  I used a stencil of old clocks and joint compound to give it texture.  I then used a Gelato on it to color it in some.  I used an old music sheet which I tore and distressed the edges.  I added some burlap that I also unraveled a little.  I used foam numbers and letters for the 50th, coloring them in with a goldish color promarker.  I added their picture onto the music sheet.  I then added some orange and white bakers twine, and some gold ribbon with sticker dots on the ends.

I am entering this into:

  2. What a gorgeous layout! I just love how you used the colored joint compound and the old music sheet. Thanks for joining us at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.

  3. Crafty using joint compound! Love the hessian and the festival feel with the colours and ribbon. It suits our theme and twist beautifully too. Thanks for sharing with us at Unstampabelles for our October challenge.
