'Believe' by Elisa Ablett

Happy Friday everyone,

Elisa here from the design team, with another project to share with you, it features loads of Memory Maze goodies.

This layout started as a watercolour background that I demonstrated at a recent retreat and also a quote that I stamped and embossed with Colour Blast Snow White Embossing Powder and watercoloured over the top with Colour Blast Shimmer Dust.

I wanted to re-use the background, so I added Colour Blast Texture Paste in Deep Water over the watercolour with a mini heart stencil from Memory Maze, once dry i used another larger heart stencil and a black pen to trace grungy hearts. I also added drops of black ink to the background.

Once the background had dried completely i added a large white circle and traced around it in black ink, i then started on my hand made dream catcher. I repurposed a chipboard heart frame from Memory Maze and gesso'd over the top of the frame and also over my chosen feathers, i then used the rest of the water colours with a paint brush to colour the frame and feathers, i also added some enamel dots to the frame using Nuvo Crystals.  

I found some embroidery thread and using a couple of metal embellishments (old Basic Grey) i threaded the metal embellishments to my watercolour frame and to the feathers as well. 

I stuck the frame down first then added my photo and quote to finish off.

Here are some close ups!!
