Reach ~ Find

I selected a couple of photos that I took in September 2014, during a visit to my parents’ grave, to create a layout with.  This is the statue of Jesus looking up to Heaven that is right by their grave.  The frame I made using Prima wire thread encompasses the same hand in both photos.  The close up photo was taken on the other side of the statue at an angle from below.
The page named "Antiquity" in the Bo Bunny Somewhere in Time collection was the perfect teal color I was looking for! It’s a green-teal; not a blue-teal, although in my layout photo it appears more bluish.
I started by applying a light coat of gesso; then stamped a crackle & a script design with Archival black ink; stenciling was done and then splatters of white & black gesso near the photo area. 
The flowers and the black stamens are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I recolored white magnolias with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst spray Jack in the Pulpit Teal.  It is a beautiful, very green teal!  I also enhanced the color of the black roses using LSG Flat Fabio spray Toto’s Tornado Black.

Here are the flower clusters up close:

I really enjoyed scrapping these photos and I hope you enjoyed viewing my layout! 
Have a great day!  Lisa : )
