Today I’m up on 49 and Market blog with a layout featuring one the new collection Tattered Gardens. I chose a photo of my paternal grandfather taken during WWII.
First I primed the background with clear gesso. When done, I stamped randomly with a gray ink and the 1747 stamp.
Next, I added a design with a stencil and graphite paste.
While the paste was drying, I used a silver wax to alter all the metallic embellishments as I want them to have the same color.
Next, I cut a few papers to add under the photo before gluing all the embellishments: some metallic gears, some fern leaves from the Remember Today Archival Board set that I kept black and some Botanical Potpourri.
I also added some mica flakes, microbeads, and Art Stones.
To finish the layout, I added some black splatters and some random stamping with the Captured Adventures stamp set.
