Reneabouquets Design Team Page, Sparkling In Blue, by Melissa Larson


Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new page for the amazing Reneabouquets. Go and see all the fun treasures there! 

Photo credit: Alice Alinari, at Unsplash  







To make this page I applied clear gesso to 49 and Market paper.

  I put the layers under the photo together,starting with taping on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger and to lie flat. Below that is a watercolor paper mat, and at the bottom is corrugated cardboard. I tore off most of the paper from the top of the cardboard, and painted it with gesso. I poured on Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, and heated it until it was just melted.

I put the layers with the photo onto the page.

 I applied Prima Platinum crackle paste with a stencil and a spatula.I arranged the Beautiful Board and flowers around the page, then added the beads and fussy cut images.I brushed on Shimmerz Paints, glued on more beads, and mica powder. 






To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter,sequins,iridescent wrapping paper,sisal, pressed flowers,shells, Inktense Watercolor Pencils, and white ink splatters,Swarovski and other brands of crystals, glass beads, pearls,lace,tulle,metal from Reneabouquets,Tim Holtz, and Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets and Prima,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.I used double sided foam tape for the flowers and some other things,and to put the cardboard layers together.I glued on fussy cut images from The Botanist's Sticker Anthology.












 Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!

Woman In Blue

 

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new design team post for the amazing Shimmerzpaints! I love their                                                                    rich texture and colors!

To make this page I put the layers under the photo together first, including taping water color paper under the image to make it stronger and lie flat. Below that is a mat of watercolor paper, and at the bottom is corrugated cardboard. I tore off most the paper from the surface of the cardboard, and painted it with white gesso.I sprinkled on Ultra Thick Embossing Powder, and heated it until it was just melted, and taped it to the background paper with double sided foam tape. Between the layers there's more cardboard, to give dimension.

 I put a layer of Clear Gesso on Blue Fern Paper. I applied Prima Platinum texture paste with a small spatula and a Prima stencil.

I attached the flowers first with double sided foam tape. I added the beads, then the paint.


I used the following colors on the page,Peacock's Plume Shimmerz, Steely Blue Eyes Shimmerz, Me & Blue, and Blue My Mind Inklingz. 





To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads, glass glitter ,glass beads, pearls, rhinestones, swarovski crystals, glass hearts,iridescent wrapping paper,fussy cut images from the Botanist's Sticker Anthology, tulle,sisal,metal from Reneabouquets,and Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets ,and bling and metal from my stash.

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new design team post for the amazing Shimmerzpaints! I love their                                                                    rich texture and colors!

 I put a layer of Clear Gesso on 49 and Market Paper. I applied Prima Platinum texture paste with a small spatula and a Prima stencil.

I attached the flowers first with double sided foam tape. I added the beads, then the paint.

I painted the chipboard with Precious Metal Shimmerz, then a thick coat of Clear Rock Candy Crackle. I brushed on Steely Blue Eyes, Dear John Letter, and Precious Metal on the watercolor mat. The corrugated has Pixie Dust Blingz, Steely Blue, and Oakie Bear Inklingz, The background is the same as the corrugated, and also includes Peacock's Plume Shimmerz, Pink-A-Boo,and Me & Blue Inklingz. All the gold on the page is mica powder.
