Mixed Media Baby!

Although I haven't been finding much time to create I have been keeping up with other peoples blogs and recently I came across this stunning Journal spread from France Papillon. It is absolutely gorgeous and, even better, she has a video tutorial (part of her journal on Monday series)

Inspired by her technique and style, I made this simple card for some friends who had just had a baby boy.

I won't go into much detail, but the texture is basically created by layering gesso and gel medium and then heating until it bubbles. I added colour with various ink sprays and highlighted with treasure gold.

I absolutely love how it turned out (and that doesn't happen very often!) so I really hope my friends liked the card and didn't think it was too arty.
