Together - Mixed media layout for 49 and Market DT

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on 49 and Market blog with a new layout featuring the Vintage Artistry Essentials. This new collection is just amazing to work with and especially with vintage photos. This one is a family treasure taken in the '20s of one of the great-grandmothers of my children with her sister. 

I tore the Affirmative paper from the VA Essentials in two and I glued one piece on top of the Airy paper. Then I primed the background with clear gesso.  I added some VA Essentials rub-ons. 

I primed some resin elements with black gesso. Next, I colored them with different waxes starting with the darkest (Bronze Age) and finishing with the brightest (White Gold). I applied the same waxes to the metallic embellishments. I glued a laser-cut butterfly from the 6x8 VA Essentials Pack under a cabochon and selected a few elements from the Essentials Ephemera Bits and the Foliage pack that I wanted to add to my layout. The Foliage pack is a mix of plastic leaves and butterflies. 

I started the composition with the biggest elements: the frame and the biggest Enchanted Petals flowers. Then, I continued with the smallest. I layered the flowers, the resin elements, and the metallic pieces with Ephemera Bits, Foliage, and laser-cut elements.

When everything was glued, I added glass glitters, microbeads, and glitters. To finish, I added some color around the composition in grey-green shades to match the color of the Affirmative paper that I've glued at the top of the background.

I had a change of mind and decided that the contrast between the color of the flowers and the rest of the composition was too important. So I decided to add some color but not too much. I applied first white gesso, then Bodacious Blush ink. Sorry I didn't record this last part of the process. 

As usual, I recorded the process of making this layout. I hope you will enjoy it.
