In this flower cluster I used Vintage Shades flowers that I altered the centers with using Prills & Sequins. I also used the branches & a bird nest from the Layered  Embellishments-Wings & Things. I primed the branches with clear gesso, then painted them with the Sheer Bliss Inklings, then glued on the Prills & Potpourri. I also cut out the bird from the bonus sheet, & used a piece of chicken wire & pieces of lace....

For the Background I used the Pause Sheet, I cut it & distressed the edges, glued lace in between the 2 pieces. I also move the right side to the left so that the Bird would come under the frame....
I glued lace onto the BS of a label, glued on some Potpourri flowers then glued the quote over the flowers....Here are a few more close ups........

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.......Rachelle

Other Elements used:  Black Gesso,White Gesso, Clear Gesso, Clear Crackle, Black Ink Pad, Black Corrugated paper, Black Doily, Ribbon, Prills-Mini Pearls & Power Outage

Here are some close ups.....
I did some paper layers using pieces of chipboard, corrugated paper, a doily in the layers....
I primed most of the chipboard with black gesso, then applied a thick coat of clear crackle on to some of the pieces, & once the crackle dried I dry brushed on some black gesso to remove the shine....I primed pieces of  Rooster Row-BS with Clear Gesso, then glued it behind the retro frame.....I then used the retro frame to frame the Number Grid & Film strip, then glued on part of the title that I painted with white gesso & inked the edges with a black ink pad......
I altered the flowers with the DA Texture paste and with using Prills as the flower centers, I also glued Prills onto some areas of the chipboard pieces....
Here are a few more close ups....

On the frames I did some stencil work using the DA Cityscape Stencil & Texture Paste....

Thank you so much for taking the time to look, & I am looking forward to see what you come up with, with this months Mood Board......Rachelle
