Flowers - TCR#55

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. I just got home yesterday from being away and I bought so many scrapping goodies while I was gone J I have wanted to try Gesso for so long now and finally I got some. I used a tutorial from Irene Tan aka Scrapperlicious to get the misting, gesso, technique; you can see her blog here. I used this week’s palette from the Color Room to base my colors on.  Most of the mists I made myself with alcohol inks and perfect pearls. The photo is my grand daughter Kylee and I altered it in photoshop elements.

The misted cardstock is white and I added some Gesso and lots of different colors of mists. In this close up you can see the distressed and inked edges and the different misting and how the gesso acts as a resist to the mists.  I used a Tim Holtz mask in the back ground also.

I added a doily around the photo and a frame that is adhered with pop ups. The flowers are all from Prima and the canvas piece is also Prima.

Close up of the title section and I added some Zva Crystals.

The butterfly is a piece from Dusty Attic and I had fun with this one. It is misted and inked and glossy accents added to it. I dipped it in water and peeled it into layers to give it the 3D effect.

Well that is it for today. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic week. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
