I used the original picture of young me, I become vintage :)
The background paper is one of the Autumn Anthology collection, Gazebo
To create more interest I use the circuitry chipboard as my mask.
I had to spray it anyway with gesso for another layout.
So now I had a white chipboard piece and textured background at the same time.
Behind the picture I used the Wild Flourish frame .
And one bird from the Little Birds set.
All I did was adding some thin gelmedium to keep the original natural chipboard color.
I cut a few paper flowers from another paper out of the collection.
Glued it behind my flower.
My next layout , also made with the Autumn Anthology collection.
The picture is about 25 years old, bad quality .
But thats what we had than....and we should just use them on our layouts.
For the background paper I used the Parfumerie paper.
I toned down with gesso, leaving out some of the beautiful background pattern.
I pushed a embossingfolder in the wet gesso to get the checkered texture.
Than I colored the background with 3 of the new mists:
The chipboard ( checker bits ) was inked up with a chipboard kind of color .
Than I embossed here and there with one of the new embossingpowders : petal
To tone down, again some mixed media ink.
New are the glitters and embossingpowders at Blue fern Studios.
Just when I was finishing this layout my package arrived !
So I added some on my flower.
A little glitter never hurts :)
I used the Pyrite , a beautiful goldtone.
Thank you for visiting the Blue Fern Studios blog.
Have a great week
