Hello my friends!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the ”Vintage Summer Basics” collection.

A mysterious layout in blue tones that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

I used as the main paper for my background the ”1914” and I made another layer on it with the backside of the ”1902”, which I had torn it and removed a piece from the center. Then, with the torn piece from the ”1902” I matted my photo.

I primed my background with clear gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua”, ”Blue Hawaiian Blue” and ”Hydrangea Blue”.

I heat embossed the ”Flourish Adornment Set 5” chipboards with ”Bavarian blue” Lindy’s embossing powder. The title was also embossed with the ”Cafe’ au lait” powder.

The chipboards I used are 2crafty and all the flowers are Prima Marketing.

To finish, I added some turquoise glass beads with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.
