So here we are again showcasing the second of the new Emerald City Craft UK papers and ephemera. This time it is Nostalgia a stunning collection of nostalgic images from days gone by and matching papers.
I decided to do a journal page this time to show the versatility of the papers. I chose a background paper that was quite plain in design and a picture of a sailor and soldier enhanced with poppies
After putting down a thin layer of gesso I stenciled some poppies using red and green inks. Using the gesso made the paper matte and gave the ability to take the inks perfectly
Finally I distressed the edges, added the picture, a paper poppy and a sentiment.
The sentiment says:
Being a HERO doesn't mean you're invincible
It just means that you're BRAVE enough
to stand up and Do what's needed
Thanks for visiting again and watch this space for more ideas on how to use the papers and ephemera
