Today I’m up on 49 and Market blog with a new layout featuring the Cottage Life collection. I chose a photo I’ve taken at the castle of Montpoupon (Loire Valley, France). The gate and the tower are just some of the castle ‘s outbuildings.
I primed the background with clear gesso to protect the background. Then I used the flourish stamp from Gabi’s Etheral set to add a design with a gray ink.
Next, I added another design with a stencil and Platinum crackle paste. I let dry naturally.
I covered the chipboard with a graphite paste and let them dry.
I cut a few paper to add under the photo and I glued them with all the embellishments: I used flowers from the Seaside Blooms, the Blossom Blends, and the Garden Seeds collections.
To finish the layout I added just a little bit of color along with micro beads and mica flakes.
