Treasured Memory ~ Blubelle Collection ~ Kaisercraft

Hello friends! This is my second project using Kaisercraft's Blubelle Collection. The photo is of myself and my siblings many years ago. I was just seventeen in this picture! Again I wanted to have a go at using mixed media elements in my background. I will share some close ups at how I achieved this....

After working out where my mats and embellishments were going, I inked around these areas and used a mask and modelling paste to add texture. I also used script stamps to add some interest.I printed a number of butterflies and added them to my layout. I love butterflies and used approx 5 in this layout.

I painted this wooden title with gesso. Once dry, I stamped in random spots over this by pressing the ink pad directly onto the title. Applying different pressure doing this creates an interesting look.

I wanted an oversized bloom on my page. I didn't have any in my stash so I created my own using lace.

I painted this flourish using gesso and stamped over it using a script stamp. Subtle and pretty!
