Today I’m up on 49 and Market blog with a new layout featuring the collection Tattered Garden. I chose a photo of my maternal grandfather with his pupils just before WWII.
I primed the background with clear gesso. Next, I mixed some Curcuma and 3D gloss gel. I added the first design with a stencil and this yellow paste.
While it was drying, I prepared a second paste with the 3D gloss gel and poppy seeds. I used this paste to add a second design with another stencil.
When everything was dry, I added some color with a green ink and a blue ink. I dried the inks before adding some tea stains.
I colored the chipboard with a white gold wax and a drawing ink. I die cut some stems in a watercolor paper which I colored with a brown-green wax.
I cut some papers to add under the photo. Before gluing all the embellishments, I added some random stamping with the 1787 stamp and the set 1 of Captured Adventures.
To finish the layout, I added some microbeads as well as splatters of the different inks: blue, green and black.
