Hello and welcome on the blog dear friends! I hope you are doing well in this difficult situation we are all facing.

Mary with you today to share my second project for this month. My layout is featuring the Vintage Remnants collection, the Dandelion Fields Laser Cut shapes along with several gorgeous flowers from the Blossom Blends and Stargazers sets.

I choose to work with the ”Paper No 5” and started by priming the paper with clear gesso. Just because I wanted to keep the background simple I didn’t use many mixed media techniques. I only applied some Finnabair icing paste in White Gold through a stencil and then, I randomly stamped on the background using stamps from the Pascale’s ”Rations Stamp” and ”1787” sets with black archival ink. Then, I used the Lindy’s Gang spray ”Mission Bells Brown” to add a little color.

I painted all the resin elements with Finnabair Impasto Paint in Dark Chocolate and then gently rubbed on them some Rose Gold wax. The Dusty Attic chipboards were first colored with Finnabair Rustic Brown acrylic paint and then were also rubbed with the same wax.

Next, I used some Blossom Blends and Stargazers flowers in Sandcastle and Lemon Drop tones and made several layers around my photo along with laser cut shapes, the resin elements, and the chipboard.
To finish the layout, I added mica flakes, glass beads along with some glitter for more shine.
