When I see you again

For this month's color challenge I had a very special photo that I wanted to use, we got it in a Christmas card from the family of my husband's childhood best friend who was killed in a car accident.  I never showed Coby the photo, I wanted to do something special with it for him for his birthday.  This month's color combo over at Lindy's color challenge was a great starting point.  


I wanted to frame it for him so I opted to work on an 8x10 surface.  I started using a 12x12 piece of patterned  paper.  I used a light coat of gesso texture paste, for color I went with Hydrangea Blue, Silent Night Silver  and Clam Bake Beige.  After my background dried I cut it down and edged it using a gray gelato.  I used the scraps to create more texture on the background, also edged in gelatos.



 The title came from the song 'When I See You Again' from the new Fast and the Furious movie, it really hit home with Coby and made him think of David quite a lot.


The photo was layered with several bits of ephemera some twine and a few bits of metal jewelry colored with alcohol inks.  I added some mica flakes using soft gel. 



I think Coby was happy with the outcome, I certainly was.  Thanks for taking a look.
