This is my first time playing along with Prima Product Picks. Colour challenges intimidate me, but I was game to give this one a try as I love that Prima gives you not only a colour palette but also suggestions of products to use - and I just so happened to have quite a few of these in my stash. I also had a piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard and a recent picture of Elliot and Brennan that suited each other perfectly and couldn't wait to use them.
I have been loving Prima's Sunrise Sunset collection recently, and it again formed the basis for my layout.
I began by stencilling the woodgrain in with gesso, and while the gesso was still wet I sprinkled in Aged Scarlet Embossing Enamel and gold microbeads then heat set it all.
I wanted the Blue Fern Studios Seasonal Wildflowers chippy to look like the corn stalks in the photo. I started by cutting the chippy in two and wetting it then peeling apart the layers to give it a tatty look. I then coated everything with gesso, followed by Shabby Tote Chalk Edger and random spots of embossing enamel in Aged Ivory and Aged Gold.
The bow and laces for the buttons are the torn off edges from the resist canvas, dipped in coffee.
I painted the metal frame with Silks, then added some gold embossing powder and heat set it for some cool texture.
Thank you for stopping by today!
