BLOOMS AND BLOSSOMS in THE GARDEN

Hello friends, it's my turn today over at
Megs Garden 
showcasing the delectable Summer's Dance and Summer's day collection .
perfect for my love of nature .
Featuring an Altered title using gesso and Tim Holtz crackle paint .

'BLOOMS' 

photo sourced from Tumblr
These new papers are such a delight to work with and I decided to compliment them with some roses and blooms and a photo to match .
I have used green cardstock to tone in with the Summer papers and inked random sections with a mask and stamping and gesso .


The leaves are diecut with Cottage Cutz /leafy foliage  :
 using a combination of The Summers Dance and A Summers day papers .


The heavenly  velvet flowers and the magnificent paper roses are just the perfect match
 for these summery papers.
I have added some 2Crafty chipboard leaves and blossom branches blended among
 this precious velvet and paper flowers cluster .


The title BLOOMS has been altered.
PROCESS 
Firstly  glue chipboard title to the page.
Brush with gesso .
When dry add some Versa color ink.. sage and rose .
Next step add some Tim Holtz crackle paint and allow to dry.
Very simple process creating a dramatic effect and lots of fun.


Stamp with a background stamp for dimension and interest .
( I used the chicken wire Kaisercraft acrylic stamp)
