The bright naive colors and the shabby chic style is what drew me to the world of scrapbooking and mixed media in the first place.
I decided to search for a sentence that will be able to remind me all the time of what really matters.
so I came up with the idea of a frame with an Inspiration sentence that would be in front of me all the time when I'm working.
The inspiration sentence is the focal point of the work and I decided to emphasize it by the other elements in it.
The frame is colored first with gesso, crackle glaze, acrylic art alchemy light patina and then gesso again to make a wash kind of look..
I framed the sentence with a white embossed chipboard, adding scraps paper, cuttings of leaves and flowers, molds and lace. I placed the sentence and all the elements on the left side of the frame (not in the center!), and I added a secondary focal point with resembling colors on the top right of the frame to keep the interest.
The shabby style is characterized by lot of details so I could not leave this side empty
By arranging such a composition, I created a pleasant movement to the eye that moves first from the focal point of the work to the secondary focal point and back again to the first one.
