Those days are special - Mixed media layout by Pascale B.

Hello sweeties,
Today I’m up on 49 and Market blog with a new vintage layout. I worked with another family photo taken in 1909 or 1910. In the photo, you can see my great-grandparents, my paternal grandfather on the left, and his two sisters.

Basic Process:

  • First, prime the background with clear gesso. It would protect the paper from all the media that we are going to put on it;
  • Add a design with white crackle paste and a stencil;

  • When dry, color the background around the design. Add water to obtain subtle color.
  • Stamp randomly with the Harmony Springtime and brown Archival ink;
  • Next, cut two papers of your choice to place under one 4×6 File Frame and one 3×4 File Frame;
  • Put more or less the elements of the composition in place to see where you will add the leaves rub-ons from the Essentials collection;

  • Continue to add rub-ons: the splatters with text. Be careful, they are really addictive!
  • When done, start to glue all the elements of the composition: the File Frames, and flowers from the Royal Spray and the Majestic Bouquet sets;Those days are special - Mixed media layout by Pascale B.
  • Add more color to the background;
  • To finish, add glitter and microbeads.
