“Memories Captured” by Aleksandra Mihelič

Hi dears,

Vintage and dark is quite out of my comfort zone, I must admit. I absolutely love these projects each time I see them by other artists, but never quite thought I could make it. Do you ever feel like this too? Well I decided to go out of my comfort zone this time, because I just totally fell in love with the “Vintage Remnants” Collection and I just had to branch out and play with them. I have to admit I quite like the result and I hope you’ll like it too.

For the background I used paper No 02 and paper No 04 from the new “Vintage Remnants” collection.

I added some stenciling with Finnabair Graphite Texture Paste on the background and some random stamping. Then I created the flow of my layout and put some colored cheesecloth along it. Then I embellished it with chipboards, laser cut shapes and gorgeous vintage colored flowers. I colored my chipboards with Rust Effect paste. At the end I added some highlights with dry-brushed gesso over some elements and few splatters of white color for the finishing touch.
