Botanical Heirlooms inspiration

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on 49 and Market blog with two new projects featuring the Botanical Heirlooms collection. The fist one is a layout. I took this photo in the castle of Chenonceau well known for the beautiful floral compositions that decorated all the rooms (Loire Valley, France).

As always I started with a layer of clear gesso to preserve the background paper. Then I added a design with a stencil and Modeling Paste.

I stacked a few papers under the photo and I added some gauze and lace between the layers.

When happy with the result, I sprayed the gauze and the lace with a mix of Primary Element and water and let dry.

Then I splattered some white ink and red acrylic paint.

I started to cut the Serenity paper in pieces of different sizes and I glued them to the Conservatory paper.

I mixed an acrylic paint with texture powder, then I used these mix to add the first design to the background. I added the second design with another stencil and Platinum crackle paste.
