April inspiration by Pascale

Hello Sweeties

I followed the April sketch for these first layout. I chose to work with papers of the Serendipity collection. Their vintage feel is a perfect match with the photo of Notre-Dame-la-Grande of Poitiers (France).

I started to add a layer of clear gesso to the background and the chipboards. Then I added adding a design with a stencil and 3D gloss gel. 

While the design was drying, I colored the Whimsy Flourishes with a brown Distress inkand added a touch of gold wax. 

I colored the die-cut sprigs with the same ink, sprayed them with water to activate the ink and sprinkled sage embossing ink while wet. I colored the leaves with the same Distress ink and some Twinkling H2O and added ginger and garnet embossing powder. 

I colored the flowers with the H2Os too and I used them to added some color to the background too. 

To finish I added some splatter of merlot glitter: I mixed soft matte gel with water and the glitter so I was able to splatter the mixing.

The second layout showcase a photo of the entrance of the castle of the Temple (L'Ile-Bouchard - France).

I started to add a layer of clear gesso to protect the background and the chipboards. I added some texture the wall stamp and the oatmeal embossing powder.

I covered the Grid Pieces chipboards with a graphite paste. When dry, I splattered some color.

I  painted the Spring Branches with some Twinkling H2O  and sprinkled some embossing powders to add some texture.    

I colored the flowers with some Twinkling H2O too. 

When all the embellishments were glued, I added more wall prints: I used a twinkling H2O with a similar color as the background.

The third layout showcase another postcard from Rennes (France) where we can see the City Hall Belfry.

I started to add a layer of clear gesso to protect the background and all the chipboards. Then I added a design with a stencil and modeling paste. While the paste was still wet I sprinkled different colors of embossing powder and heat set them. 

I covered the Roman Clock with black gesso, then I added some texture with the Texture Circles stamp and the Ginger embossing powder. 

I covered the Leafy Page Accents with a white crackle paste. When dry I colored them with a light brown Twinkling H2O. 

I colored the roses and the leaves with different Twinkling H2O and I added some ebossing powders on the leaves to add some textures.

I added some colors to the background and some random stamping with the Arcadia Textures stamp. To finish I splattered some glitters mixed with matte gel and water.
