Lest We forget

With ANZAC day a few days away I have made two layouts.
The first page has been made with inspiration from ARTastic Challenge for April. Black and white  with one color. Red for poppies.

The layout uses A2Z Scraplet "Lest We Forget"

ARTastic Inspiration - Poppies by Karen Neal

My second page has been made using A2Z Scraplet Soldier Standing Shape.

I've used specialty paper from Feature Art for both layouts. On the first layout, I painted my title in acrylic paint. I've used black for the words and crimson for the poppy. I applied some Prills to the center of the poppy and used glossy accents over the piece for shine.

To complete my page I have used die cut leaves, Heartfelt Creations poppies, Prills and hessian.

My second layout I made poppies from bookpaper. Once the paper was painted, the poppies were die cut and assembled. Prills were used for centres.

The chipboard was painted with acrylic paint then distress ink applied.

I arranged the die cuts poppies around the photos.

This ANZAC day we will be remembering those who gave their lives.
