Here are some close ups.... 
For the paper layers I used 49 and Market-Rusty Autumn-Enchanted-BS ,7 Dots & Dusty Attic corrugated card. I ripped all of  the paper, &primed the corrugated paper with black gesso. I then painted the corrugated card with the Black Emerald Silk, & inked the edges of the paper with the Lindys-Midnight.....
I primed the chipboard with black gesso, then painted some of the pieces with clear crackle, & once the crackle dried I used the Black Emerald & Iridescent Gold-Silk for the color, I also rubbed in & inked the edges using a black ink pad...
I had lots of fun on this LO, playing with chipboard layers, on the heart arrows I added the mini chains & mini cogs....
I altered the flowers with the black emerald, iridescent gold & copper penny, & used Prills as the flower centers...

Here are a few more close ups... 

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


  1. Hi Rachelle! I adore your layouts and always spend ages drooling over each layer :). I was wondering if you could share a link to the Prills you use. I've recently bought myself a selection, inspired by your beautiful makes, but mine seem smaller than yours. My jars actually say Mini Prills. Is that what you use? I'd really appreciate if you could contact me with your advice:). My email is joey4you at wp dot pl. Thank you so much! Have a great weekend! x

  2. This one really makes me GASP! It's magnificent!!!!! The colors are amazing and the design & theme are gorgeous!!! Truly a masterpiece!

  3. Rachelle, your adaptability is truly amazing! Your colours, texture, crackle, layering...ahhh, such a privilege for us all to share in. So, again I say ... thank-you!
