Today it’s a photo that I took during a trip to Terra Botanica (Angers – France) that I choose to scrap with the beautiful Maja Design’s papers. It’s a reconstruction of a old attic or garage with a pile of old stuff like I used to see in my grand-parents’s farm.
I began to add a design with a stencil and a Graphite paste. When dry , I added some random stamping.
Meanwhile I painted the die-cut gears and the clock face with black Gesso and covered them randomly with the graphite paste. Then I let them dry.
When gears and clock were dry, I added some Rusting Powder “glued” with soft gel. To activate the powder, you just need to spray some vinagar et wait. If you don’t like to wait, you can accelarate the process by heating the powder with your heat gun.
While the gears were quietly rusting, I colored the flowers, die-cut the leaves et cut some papers to add under the photo.
To finalize, I added a touch of green with a chalk ink.
After having put all the embellishments together, I added some color to the background and some black glitters.
