Vintage Glitter and Lace



Hi everyone! Melissa here with a vintage page for Tresors de Luxe. I love the details and textures of these laces and trims!




I sponged gesso on, then applied texture paste with three different stencils. 

I put the photo on layers of canvas and ribbon. I used foam core board to give the canvas and photo some height.

I painted the lace with different green water colors, then sprayed with water to blend them. Once dry I added different colors to tone down the bright green and brushed mica powders on. I placed the pearl purse and pieces of trim on.

 I painted the stenciled areas around the edges with different shades of blue, green, purple, gold,                                                                                and  yellow.                                                                                    



I added rub ons,stamps, glass glitter, stickles, and bling. There are a few metal pieces, and some tulle.




I put gold mica powder and water all around the edges.  Any gold you see on the page is mica powder mixed with water. I mix everything on my craft mat.  

I put green stickles on top of the paint on all the edges.




Anytime I felt there was too much color, I sponged on more gesso.

The purple on the page is watercolor crayon.  I love the shade, it's darker than the violet mica powder, or any other purple I have. It's really easy to use. I just scribble some on my mat and put a wet brush on, to pick up the paint.





                          I brushed the pearl and rhinestone purse with mica powder and water.

Pretty in Lace

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a layout for Tresors de Luxe.  I love working with the materials from this company,the laces and trims are so richly detailed and beautiful.

 

I painted the lace with watercolors, and then sprayed it with water to blend the shades of lavenders and blues. The pieces hanging down from the lace remind me of leaves

I cut apart some trim for more sparkle and color.I think the purple tones here complement the peach rhinestones perfectly. 




 I put a little gold lace at the top of the photo. 


  



The rhinestone key is amazing.

A Day Out


Hi everyone, Melissa here with a page for Tresors de Luxe. The laces and trims are fabulous, versatile, and fun to use!




I used pieces of lace and beaded applique as embellishments. I think the gleam of the pearls and gold help to suggest a quiet romantic mood.  




You can see that the detail of the lace is amazing!

 I cut apart some pieces of rhinestone trim to add even more shine. 



Thank you for looking, and I hope you liked my first post for Tresors de Luxe!
