Bonjour à toutes, today I’m up on 49 and Market blog with a new layout featuring the Old School Mini Collection.

I stamped randomly with the 1787 Stamp and black Archival ink. When happy with the result, I primed the background paper with clear gesso. Next, I colored the background with blue and purple inks. I mixed together purple glitter, black glitter, and 3D gloss gel. I used this homemade paste to add a design with a stencil.

I die cut some leaves in a watercolor paper. I colored the filigree leaves with black gesso, then with silver wax. I simply inked the other one with green and blue inks. I colored the center of the Cotton Blooms with the purple ink. I colored also some doilies with the same blue and purple inks I used for the background.

I glued all the embellishments I have prepared with a 3D Matte Gel as well as some elements from the laser cut sheet. To finish the layout, I added some microbeads.
