Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on 49 and market blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Artistry collection. I chose to work with a photo I’ve taken during an event at the Château de l’Islette  (Loire Valley, France).

First I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I added different colors that matched the photo. When happy, I sprinkled some coarse salt and some table salt on some part and I covered everything with a piece of clingfilm. I let dry everything naturally.

I sprayed a watercolor paper with green and yellow inks and I sprinkled it with coarse and table salt. When dry, I used this paper to die cut a few leaves.

I colored some Buttermilk flowers to match the green of the photo.

When the background was dry, I removed the clingfilm and the salt. The combination of both techniques gave a beautiful result.

Next, I cut some elements of the Ephemera Cut Out sheet to add under the photo, I glued some sisal and all the embellishments. I stamped here and there with the 1787 stamp.

To finish the layout, I added some microbeads and mini Art Stones.
