Today, I’m up on Maja Design blog for the last time. After 4 years, it’s time for me to say goodbye and it’s never easy, but don’t worry, you will continue to see me on the web. I want to thank Marie again for having me for such a long time, her kindness, and for her generosity.
And for my last project, I made a layout featuring the Vintage Basics collections: I used the Summer and Spring collections. I work with another of my family treasure: on the photo, taken by my maternal grandfather, you can see his mother with his brother.
First I stamped randomly with a dark brown ink and different stamps. When done, I primed the background with clear gesso.
I mixed together a brown magical with white crackle paste to add a design with a stencil. To give the effect of a peeling design I used my palette knife to remove some part of the design. I let dry naturally to allow the crackle to appear.
In the meantime, I soaked some flower chipboards in order to give them more dimension and texture. I gently pulled apart the edges to add more texture. After drying, I primed them with white gesso and I used blue and brown inks to add some colors.
I just added some gold shimmer to the white flowers and some brown ink to the leaves. I colored also some leaves chipboards with the brown ink as well as a mix of different sizes of Art Stones.
When the crackle paste was dry, I added some colors with the same inks to the background. Next, I cut a few papers to add under the photo before gluing all the embellishments.
To finish the layout I add some fine glitters on top of the flowers chipboards and the Art Stones.
