"Montage" Layouts with Rae

Hello everyone! It's Rae sharing some new projects I've made using the fabulous new Montage paper collection! This collection is PURE JOY to work with, and I'm excited to use it to create many more projects. Here are my first three that I've made to show you this month:

"Happiness is the Sunshine of the Soul" Layout

For this layout I used the "Invitation" and "Bouquet" papers from the Montage collection. 

In this closeup, you can see part of the JEWELED FRAME chipboard. I treated this by using several embossing powders, and randomly touching it with an archival ink pad.

Here's another one:

On the edges of the layout,  I placed some TURKISH BITS that I embossed. I also used more embossing powder to treat the MINI FLOURISHES.

"Take Time..." Layout

For this layout I used "Bouquet," "Calling Cards," and "Now and Then" from the Montage paper collection.

I covered three PARTY FLAGS with various Montage papers, then threaded the holes with jute twine.

For this LEAFY BOUGH, I cut it in two to wrok better with my design. I left it "naked" then used glitter glue and loose glitter on top of it and used a heat gun until it bubbled.

"Sitting Pretty" Layout

From the Montage collection, I used "Calling Cards," "Wisdom," "Invitation," and "Bouquet" papers.

I cut a piece from GINGER'S POPPIES, and embossed it with a vintage pink embossing powder.

 I painted the ORNATE SHELF with black milk paint which gave it a matte finish.

I took the inserts of the ORNATE SHELF out of the main piece, and used one of them for an accent piece on the side of the photo.

And, I used the MINI FLOURISHES again, this time using gesso, embossing powders, and a green mist for this shabby chic finish. 

Thanks for checking out my projects today!
