Seeing Spots | Amanda Lawrence

Hello all!
I have a very bright and colourful share today. During the January school holidays we were lucky enough to visit the Yayoi Kusama installation at GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) here in Brisbane. 

These photos were taken in the Obliteration Room. It starts out as an all white room, furniture and all. Each person who visits is given a sheet of coloured dot stickers which you are invited to stick anywhere you like. We went closer to the end of the exhibit and as you can see, there was pretty much no white spaces left!

I found a scrap of spotty paper in my stash which was perfect as a mat for my photo. I then dug through my scraps looking for plain coordinating colours that I could use to back the Bubbles Creative Cuts from the store. They were perfect for my spotty layout!

Once all those were in place, it was time to embellish!

For my main cluster I used one of the Swan Roses in white as my feature. I then added a selection of paper flowers, some resin pieces, a flair from the 'Which Way Words' set and finally a 3D heart cabochon.

My second cluster was a repeat of the same elements, less the larger flower. This time I used a flair from the 'Defining Words' set in white. To anchor everything down I added a frame of handstitching around the photo area and also some random 'x' stitches on the edges of the bubble cut files.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can grab some inspiration from my share today.

Till next time,
