Hello friends! Sharing a layout I made up yesterday. We just replaced carpet with flooring throughout the main parts of the house and along with that I painted the office which is completely getting converted over to a studio for crafting. One project kind of leads into another and before I knew it I was putting a fresh coat of paint on all the trim before the flooring went in. Finally finished up all the painting and yesterday was dark and rainy so I slipped into my studio to create. I was actually sitting at an old dilapidated card table in there because we have not yet completed everything... lol That's okay though I'm still deciding what I want and I think we will be making a trip to Ikea soon. Meanwhile my supplies are very unorganized, but I know what is to come so I'm dealing.
I just absolutely loved this new collection from prima and so enjoyed working with it. I have plenty more to work with, so more to come. I created a layout and started it out by just stenciling on the back round of the paper using molding paste and then I misted it with Perfect Pearls Interference Red and Pearl. I knew I wanted to use The Arch Window Chipboard piece from Dusty Attic for this page putting the photo behind it. I used some of the chipboard from the pop out squares from the window and made some bricks.
I made some flower clusters using the beautiful prima flowers from the collection and also added some leaves using Dusty Attic chipboard Leafy Stem. I cut up the stem and added them around the flowers. I covered them with Gesso and then painted them with Distress crackle paint Antique Linen and highlighted the edges with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
Some more closeups of the page ...
For the bricks I was going for a old beat up look so I covered the chipboard pieces that I cut up with some of the paper, painted the edges with the crackle paint and inked and distressed them. The window was also covered with a coat of Gesso and them I painted it with crackle paint and added in some perfect pearls mixed up with some water and added it on. To finish I covered it in crackle clear distress paint.
Thanks so much for visiting me... have a wonderful weekend!
