Bridal Shower – Park Mixed Media

A few weeks ago I had the great fortune of getting to teach at another bridal shower.  There were 15 guests and it was hosted by the maid of honour Laurie.  Laurie gave me a bit of information about the couple and one of the things that came up a few times was a nearby park so I took that idea and ran with it.  I layered down some vintage paper then started with my signature blue background.  This time I used my new Liquitex acrylic spray paint with a stencil.  So much easier then using my spray inks as I didn’t have to cover it with a sealant before continuing with other layers.

 Here is the lovely Krissie who made this all possible as she recommended me from having been at another shower I taught at.

 Krissie also seems to be a bit of a baker, check out the adorable cupcake display she put on.  Such a great idea!

 Amy’s masterpiece, she even went and gathered rocks outside.  A girl after my own heart.

 I then took it home, outlined it all, added a bit of stamping and finishing touches.

 I always try and add a few inspiring touches into the paintings as well.

I delivered the piece tonight and I hope the happy couple enjoys it as much as her guests enjoyed making it.
