Here is the beautiful sketch
created by the very talented Michele Singh
I used the large Organic Vine Corner in place of the floral cluster on the sketch. I explain in the closeup post how I achieved the finish. That wonderful double circular stain you see on the page is actually a new BoBunny stamp. I just adore it!! It has smaller splatters in the set as well.
I used the word Happy from the Optimist Set. This set goes a long way when you want to create titles. Or you can use multiple words on one page. I just inked it with some Vintage photo distress ink.
I used some inked corrugated card board behind a tear out and added some lace and a flower.
I used a variety of flowers for the cluster. Lots of old Prima from my stash. And some Kaiserkraft.
I used a Sizzix embossing folder to create the leafy vines and just cut out the raised part of the design. I added a little ink on the raised parts for a little color.
Here is a closeup of the vine.
I decided to use 2 photos on this layout and topped them with a Sizzix die cut and inked it with some Vintage Photo distress ink. Then I framed one of the photo's with some twine.
For the Large Organic Vine Corner, I painted it with some Silks Acrylic Glaze in Afrikan Jade and Guatemalen Green, then after it dried, rubbed some Viva Inka Gold Metallic Rub in Gold over the surface ever so lightly for a patina finish. The Blue Fern Studios chipboard takes on so many mediums brilliantly. This technique is so rich looking. In real life it looks like a piece of fine forged metal.
