In Canada, November 11 is Remembrance Day. It is a statutory holiday in most provinces and territories in order to commemorate members of the armed forces and to remember and honour those who have fought for our country and our freedom. It’s about respecting our past and thanking those that have served. I grow many poppies in my garden and they always make me think of the iconic war poem ‘In Flanders Field’ by John McRae.
To add some subtle texture and interest to the piece of Bo Bunny Heritage patterned paper, I used a Bo Bunny stickable stencil and smeared a little molding paste through it with my finger. I adore the way these stencils stick, even after repeated washings, so the molding paste ends up where it is supposed to. All the time. It can’t sneak under the stencil and make a mess.
Then, I sprayed a little bit of Clearsnap Smooch Spritz Spun Sugar here and there. It adds an aged look.
I left everything to dry for an hour and then adhered my photographs and embellishments. Sending my gratitude to all those that have served our country. Lest we forget.
