Post 290: Vintage Mixed Media Layout- Forever

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Vintage Mixed Media Layout titled Forever. This was for my October DT project at Bob n Betty papers, all the details can be checked out here

I’ve depicted a vintage wedding here. I was inspired by all the "delicate flowers, net & soft colors  in these papers". Essentially, clear gesso was applied on the background (to prep the surface and not hide the beautiful designs of the paper) then color was added with ink sprays. Background stamping was done and a few stamped designs were embossed in white. Then, the wedding photo was framed within an embossed mdf frame. Pearls were adhered to the frame to make it the focal point. Lots of flowers from the paper pack were fussy cut and used for embellishment and layering. I’ve added gauze fabric, burlap string and vintage lace for texture and interest. I've also used a doily to keep with the delicate theme. White splatter was created to bring the design together.

Supplies Used:
Bob n Betty's Cottage Blush Paper Pack
Vintage Lace
Gauze Fabric
Prima's Clear Gesso
Prima's Heavy White Gesso
Prima's 3D Matte Gel
Finnabair Mini Stamps
Lindy's Sprays
