Beautiful moments - Mixed media banner by Elena Martynova

Hi, Elena Martynova here with another romantic styled project.

Today, a new format of work for me is a banner. Once upon a time, I made a whole garland of mix-media banners with photos of my daughter from 1 to 9 years old. Now you can’t look at them without laughing:))

The pink color is perfect for decorating girls’ photos, so I chose a beautiful sheet of Vintage Artistry Coral – Love Letters as the background. I covered it with clear gesso, applied crackle paste through a stencil, and after drying, added chaotic splashes with coral and gold sprays. Complicated the background with stamps from the set Tickets and Numbers.

I painted parts of the background cutting with a gray spray, since the photo has a similar color, I wanted to extend it to the entire work.
I can’t believe this baby has grown up so fast! The other day she turned 16! She bought a skate and learns to ride at home:)))

Rarely does my work go without a chipboard from 2Crafty. And this time I added two flower branches. I painted them with white paint and sprays. The middle of the flowers was decorated with plastic stones from the set Wishing Bubbles – Soda Pop.
