Today I’m on Maja Design blog with another family photo. It’s my paternal grandfather Nicolas Joseph. This photo has been taken during his military service in the Air Force.
I began my layout by adding some clear gesso on my background to help the Brusho I choice to work with to react properly. When dry, I added a design with a stencil and some modeling paste. When dry, I added some random stamping.
I die-cut the gears in a cardboard that I painted first with white gesso, then with an uneven and very light layer of black gesso. When dry, I used some Original Rust to give them the aspect of rust.
I used some Walnut Stain Distress ink to alter the flowers.
I die-cut the leaves in two assorted papers from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.
