Conversation - mixed media layout

A while ago I caught my grandfather and son on camera while they were completely immersed in a live conversation.  These two can talk for hours about science, machines and philosophy. There is something magical going on between this 90 year old man and his 11 year old great grandson that I wanted to capture on a layout.

In order to create a conversation theme I wanted to use letters and text. I started by layering three patterned papers with text pattern on them after tearing them into the desired shape. Then I added letter stickers and a lot of them. I wanted to created a waterfall of letters symbolizing a flowing conversation.

I added a little mixed media magic with glimmer mist spraying and stenciling with gesso and distress ink. I finished the page with flowers and chipboard embellishments. You can watch the video for a step by step tutorial on how I created this page.

This was such a special layout to create and it's going to be a wonderful souvenir for both of them.

Have fun creating!
