C85 SHABBY ROSE COLLECTION - BY EWELINA GRYGLAK
12x12 scrap page ‘Forever blessed’
For this layout you will need:
Vintage Panels paper C85 006 x2
Chipboard die-cut FOREVER BLESSED DC85 004
Stencil DS 049 C85 range
Stickers ST85 001
Silver embellishment – oyster shell E7 069
Flowers: Fresh Vintage paper C85 005
Other requirements: clear matte gesso, white gesso, texture paste, teal, pink, black and white acrylic inks, floral bristle, floral twigs, lace, white grit, silver micro-beads, pearl beads, double-sided tape, glue
Your base page is Vintage Panels paper C85 006, using the wooden door side. To make sure the wet mediums don’t soak through the page, prime it with a layer of clear matte gesso (that will make it waterproof but will not fade out the original paper design).
Tear the other sheet of Vintage Panels paper C85 006 into vertical strips but make them uneven in thickness and length – you want them to look like peeling off wallpaper. You can distress the edges and fold the strips length-wise to add dimension.
Glue them in layers in the centre of the page running from the top of the page – this is the centre piece of your page. Leave to dry.
Using the Stencil Stencil DS 049 C85 range range and texture paste, add window stamps to the page – they can be partly on the vertical strips, partly on the background. Make sure they’re on both sides of the cluster.
Sprinkle pink, white, teal and black acrylic inks across and around the paper cluster. Leave to dry.
While the page with the wet mediums is drying, make your paper flowers. I make mine using Silhouette cut files and Fresh Vintage paper C85 005. You can use any flowers you want.
Paint the Chipboard die-cut FOREVER BLESSED DC85 004 using white gesso. Once dry, separate the frame from the phrase.
To the paper cluster, vertically attach a strip of lace. Add the photo using double-sided tape. Stick some floral bristle under it before attaching.
Add flowers filling in the gaps between them with floral twigs and bristle.
Randomly, dab glue around the cluster and sprinkle white grit, silver micro-beads and pearl beads all over.
Finally, attach the Silver embellishment – oyster shell E7 069 and both elements of the Chipboard die-cut FOREVER BLESSED DC85 004.
