Courtship Lane inspiration by Pascale

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Blue fern Studios with 3 new projects using the Courtship Mane collection. .

In the first one I chose a photo of my daughter when she was almost 3 years old, no need to say it was some time ago.

And here is the beautiful sketch I follow to make the layout.

You still have time to upload your project until the 31st March here.

I started to add a layer of clear gesso to the background to protect it. While it was drying, I cut several strips in the Est Plaza paper. Then I glued them to the background and added a thin layer of white gesso. When dry, I stamped randomly with an archival black ink with the Garden Frolic design.

I added also a design with the Essentiel Textures and the Snow embossing Powder. 

I primed the  French Word with white gesso and the Turkish Panel with clear gesso. Then I colored the chipboards with different colors of Twinkling H2Os. 

I used the same colors on the background and the flowers in order to have a monochromatic layout. I finished the page with some glitters.

For the last layout I chose to work with the green paper from the collection. It was the perfect match for this photo of the Saint Martin Wash House I've bought during a trip to Rennes (France)

I started to apply a layer of clear gesso. Then I added a design with a light modeling paste and a stencil. While the paste was still wet I sprinkled several colors of embossing powders and heat set them. 

I cover the Organic coins with a layer of clear crackle paste and let to dry. When the paste was completly dry, I colored it with a mica powder.

I colored the die-cut leaves with different shades of green and browns that match the photo and sprinkled them with different embossing powders and heat set them.

I used a Primary Element to color the Courtship Roses.

I  finished with splatters of black and white gesso and some random stamping with the Postal Textures stamp.
