You Are a Natural Beauty... - Mixed media layout by Mary Tzalla

Hello dear friends,
I am back today with a new layout created with one of my favorite collection the Vintage Artistry Sage Collection along with its laser-cut elements and Ephemera Stack and Stitch Framesets. I love all tones of these packs but this one I love the most.

For my background, I used the Perennial paper and started as usual by priming the paper with clear gesso. When the gesso was dried, I added some texture with Finnabair modeling paste and a stencil. Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays, Green with Envy Green and Rusty Lantern Lime were used to add some color. I continued to add interest to my background with a randomly stamping with the Springtime Harmony and 1787 Stamp Sets.

The resin elements were first primed with clear gesso and then were colored a little bit with Umber Finnabair Liquid Acrylic. Next, I picked some elements from the Ephemera Stack, Stitched Frames, and Sage Collage Stack along with several flowers from Maura’s Vineyard, Sugar Posies, Seaside, and Country Blooms sets. I arranged them around my photo by making several layers with all of them.

Some Wishing Bubbles in Limeade and Cream Soda completed my composition and the final step was made by adding art stones, glass beads, and a little glitter here and there for more shine.
