Hello Art Anthology friends! Today I'm sharing a layout that was especially fun to create. The photo is one of my favorites and Wisteria is in my top ten of favorite flowers! The flowers are hand made using dies and the rose leaves are chipboard that has been altered to match the layout and flowers. Today I'm going to share how I altered the chipboard using Art Anthology Colorations  but first we will talk about the background of the layout.


To create the background follow these steps:

Begin by tracing around where the matting and photo will be placed.


Add your Mud and stenciling. Allow to dry.


Spray the background with Colorations Peacock Feathers.


Adhere your photo and mats using cardboard for dimension. Using VersaMark clear embossing ink and 2 colors of embossing powder, emboss your stenciling.


Add splatters using Minx in Midnight to your layout.


Gesso all chipboard pieces.

Spray with Colorations in Peacock Feathers.

Emboss with Versa Mark and Utee thick enamal embossing powder.



When the embossing is set spray with Colorations in Gilded Gold and reheat until it melts into the Utee.


This technique will give your chipboard gold metal flecks and give it a wet look.

I hope you give this a try it will give your layouts a unique look!

Thanks for stopping by the Prairie Rose Cafe today!!
