For the background I ripped pieces from the top & bottom of the Tattered Garden sheet & glued ripped pieces of the corrugated paper & the Fishnet Border into the layers.....
I primed the chipboard pieces with the clear gesso, then applied a thick coat of the crackle paint onto some of the pieces. Once the crackle had dried I played with blending in the waxes listed above. On this LO I did not use any flowers in the clusters, I just built layers with assorted chipboard pieces....Here are a few more close ups....

Hello 49 and Market Fans, today I would like to share with you a LO I did using the Beautiful Ethereal Collection along with lots of 49 and Market's Embellishments....

Other Elements used: Viva Modellier Cream-Champagne, Liquid Pearls, Sequins, Prills, Cheese Cloth

For the Background I ripped pieces from the Daydream & Whisper-BS sheet, distressed the edges & glued frayed burlap into some of the layers. I also distressed the edges of the photo & glued it onto a piece of the Whisper Sheet to mat the photo, then glued this onto a piece of frayed burlap. I painted all of the Archival Board with a thick coat of the Viva-Champagne paste. On some of the pieces I wrapped some frayed burlap to give more texture & to bring out the hat in the photo......

I changed the flower centers with using sequins & prills. I glued strips of cheese cloth behind the wild grass & after the glue had dried I frayed it to resemble the grass in the photo. On the front I used a thick coat of the Viva Paste & Prills.  In the clusters I used the Stargazer flowers, Archival Board & Laser Cuts....

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