Life's Portrait.

Hi Everyone. I Want to share a lo using Websters Pages new line Life's Portrait. I love the sophisticated colors and elegant designs. I couldn't think of a better picture than one of my husband and I. Hope you like it.

I used Gesso, again!!! I love it!!! I think is going to become My new addiction besides flowers lol!
What I did for the background is stamp using an old script stamp from Purple Onions Designs. using Coffee Color Archival Ink, Than I used a thin layer of Gesso, so it could tone down the stamped background, then I paint with a gauze using GM.(frost)

Supplies. Websters Pages Life's Portrait collection. (
Love Yourself, Life Portrait's Diecut, Imagine your Life)
