Saint Cosmes

Hello Sweeties,
Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a photo that I take at the Priory of Saint Cosmes (Centre – France).  The priory was the last resting place of the french poet Pierre de Ronsard (1524-1584). The photo shows the pulpit of the lector of the refectory as well as one of the 16 stained glass window created by the painter Zao Wou-Ki (1920-2013).


I started to glue a piece of paper on the background. When done, I colored some white crackle paste with a  blue Twinkling H2O. I used the blend crackle paste to add a design with a stencil.


While the paste was drying, I started layering some papers under my photo. I used mostly pieces of 1891 and Minnen sheets from the Vintage Summer Basics collection.


I colored the chipboards and die-cut title with a mix of Rust Mica Powder and two shades of browns Twinkling H2Os to add some depth. I colored flowers and leaves with more Twinkling H2O.


While everything was drying, I added some colors to my background to match the photo, some dark blue and some red tp match the dots of red of the stained glass that we can see in the photo.


After gluing all the embellishments, I added some glass glitters and microbeads. I finished with some random stamping with a script stamp and two wall textures stamps for more interest.

Hello, I'm Pascale B. from France. Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition. Visit me at
