Hello my friends!

It’s Mary here with you, today, and I have a new layout to share with you. I made a romantic page, again, using papers from the ”Vintage Spring Basics” collection.

Close Up 1

The main paper on the background is the ”2nd of May”. I tore the ”8th of March” paper into three pieces and then I glued down the top piece on the top edge of the main paper. The lower torn piece of paper was glued on the bottom of the main paper, leaving the middle spot empty.

When accembled the papers, I gave them a coat of clear gesso. I added texture by using modeling paste and a stencil. When everything dried, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cotton Candy Pink”, ”Salt Water Taffy” and ”Cattail Copper Brown” to color my page.

I decided to make a simple cluster for my photo… only a doily, a little cheesecloth and some lace. And, at this point, I want to give all the proper gredits to the photographer of the photo, which I found on Pinterest.

The chipboards are all 2Crafty and I painted them with Finnabair Acrylic Paints. For the title and the heart frame I used the ”Vintage Rose” and for the leaves I used two shades of green, the ”Lime Peel” and the ”Green Olive”. All flowers and embellishments are Prima Marketing.

As a final touch I added some pearls and some microbeads and made some splatters with white gesso.

Well, that’s all for today…

…see you again in two weeks!

Thank you for your time!
