Hi 49 and Market fans! Today it’s my turn to show you my first creation of the month of December. I made a very colorful page, I need a little sun at this time of year, here in Quebec it is cold and everything is white. Here is my layout.

For this layout I used the Bold and Beautiful Collection and lots of new flowers. I always put a layer of clear gesso on the background paper so that the paper absorbs all the colored ink and that I can work them as I want. I spread some graphite paste with a silicone brush and a stencil on the background paper, I found the gray too dark so I put a little white gesso on the pattern to soften a little. To make the texture on the bottom I put Strata Paste here and there with a spatula.

I made a composition of flowers, laser cuts, images to cut, chipboards and molded shapes that I painted. I added color with inks and paint all around my composition. I stamped patterns with black waterproof ink. To give more texture I glued arts stones of different sizes and micro beads.I have drops here and there with Splash! Ink white and I diluted a little with water to spread a little on the flowers.
