Sharing Solange's Mixed Media Projects

Hello Everyone.
I have a real treat in store for you all, for the next couple of days I will be sharing Solange's beautiful work. Solange is a mixed media artist, and does amazing work.
You need to look closely at Solange's work, she just layers so much on her projects.
First up is one of her layouts. How bright and beautiful is this.
Solange has called this layout "Play", and it looks like she had fun playing with all kinds of inks, paints and sprays while creating it!

Just look at the back ground, you can see how much layering is going on.

Even her chipboard is textured.  Solange used molding paste on the letters, then sprayed them with black glimmer mist. You can really see the effect shown here.

For her fence, Solange used Crackle Paint on the chipboard.

 What a lovely page for a boy or male. I love all the buttons Solange has added, it finishes off the page beautifully.
Next up is another one of Solange's layouts. This one she has called -

Again another amazing layout, with lots of layers. Paint, gesso and more. I can see some stamping as well.

 Solange used the Hot Air Balloon chipboards as a mask and after she applied molding paste on the Hot Air Balloons, she sprayed glimmer mist and stamped it them.

I have some more of Solange's work to share in a day or two, so please leave a comment and I will be back soon.
