Other Elements used: Clear Gesso, Clear Crackle Paint, LuminArt-Silk-Oyster,Tim Holtz Walnut Stain, Black Ink Pad, Chalk....Here are a few close ups....

For the background I used Irrevocable Beauty-Cultivate-BS. I ripped it at a angle then glued lace into the layers. I primed the Archival Board with Clear Gesso, then applied clear crackle onto some areas. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with the Oyster-Silk, & rubbed in  brown chalk on to the dry silk to bring out the cracks. For the brown pieces of chipboard I used walnut stain & the black ink pad. I framed the photo of Janene's sweet daughter Norah with a frame that is on the Old School Laser Cut Sheet and the DA Ornate Circle Frame, then glued on pieces under the photo from the Collage Stack that I had Inked the edges with a ink pad. I also glued a couple pieces of excess chipboard under the photo to raise it and allow room to embellish under the photo. In the clusters I used 49 and Market flowers, Laser Cuts, Archival Board & a couple pieces of DA Chipboard. I love working with the Laser Cuts, they are easy to work with and are very detailed. The Title comes from a BS of a Label. Here are a few more close ups......

Thank you so much & see you soon with another LO using some more of 49 and Market's New Releases.....Rachelle

Other Elements used: Clear Gesso, White Gesso, Clear Crackle Paint, LuminArt Silk-Oyster, Prills, Chalk, Cheesecloth....Here are a few close ups....
For the background I ripped pieces from the Vintage Artistry Collection listed above. I Primed the chipboard with the clear gesso then applied the clear crackle paint on to some areas of the chipboard pieces. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with the oyster silk, & rubbed in chalk that was in the same tone of blue-green in the Mood Board. My inspiration came from the Mood Board to use the wild grass, that I glued prills onto. The Photo was framed with the circle frame then I layered chipboard pieces over the frame . I also altered the flowers with dry brushing on some white gesso & changed the flower centers with using sequins & prills. Here are a few more close ups...

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