Remnant lace on a mixed media card


Mixed-media-card-for-Maya-Road-by-Yvonne-Yam

Do you have remnant little bits of lace lurking in your stash that are just too pretty to throw away? Why not adhere them all on a card to create a lovely textured background? :)


I started by adhering the remnant lace pieces on a watercolour card base with gel medium. You can get creative by mixing the pieces to create a lovely pattern. Then, paint a layer of gesso to prep the textured surface for colorants. 


I went in with some spray mists and applied some gesso on the raised surfaces to showcase the lace texture.


I finished the card with a few embellishments from Maya Road. 



Happy week ahead friends!
