Gossamer Blue | The Best

I have been hanging on to this photo by my talented photographer friend Rebekah for so long; I love the light and how it captures small town Kansas just perfectly.

The Go Now Go line by Shimelle seems like the perfect match for this perfect photo.

I printed the photo three times then created a a larger mat for the pictures.  I added tons of ephemera from the die cut pack and a few brads and puffy hearts.  All items are from November Gossamer Blue kits.

The background started out differently (don't they all, ha!) as I planned to have much more mixed media showing behind the photos.  I didn't like the look so I opted to cover more of it.  I trimmed an inch off two sides of the deer head paper and mounted it on the woodgrain paper by Jen Hadfield.

I did a ton of stitching with gold thread around the perimeter of the deer head paper, just to tie in the gold accents in the embellishments.  I wanted to add a bit more of a wonky look as well.

The gesso I used really turned kind of yellow in the photos, but I don't mind that too much.  In person you don't notice it.
