Reneabouquets Artists With An Edge Design September 2020 Moodboard Challenge

 Hi everyone! It's September, which means there is a new mood board challenge in the Reneabouquets Artists With an Edge Facebook Group


Beautiful Board (BB)Chipboard will celebrate its 3rd Birthday this year on September 1st!! I've focused on using Beautiful Board on this page. To help celebrate, the giveaway for this challenge will be a large amount of BB.


In case you are new to my blog, we do a mood board challenge every month in the Reneabouquets Artists With an Edge Facebook Group. Everyone who enters a new project using items from Reneabouquets, gets entered into a chance to win a Reneabouquets prize package at the end of the month. 

Here is the kick off project that I made for this month's challenge.









This photo is of Maude Fealy, a famous stage actress from around 1900.







To make this page I applied clear gesso to Blue Fern Jane's Memoirs paper.

  I put the layers under the photo together,starting with taping on watercolor paper under the image to make it stronger and to lie flat. Below that is a watercolor paper mat, and at the bottom is corrugated cardboard. I tore off most of the paper from the top of the cardboard, and painted it with gesso.I put two or three layers of cardboard between the layers to add dimension. 

I put the layers with the photo onto the page.

I had already painted the page with clear gesso. I applied Prima Platinum crackle paste with a stencil and an old credit card. I brushed on white gesso on the page where I planned on glueing things on. I picked out Beautiful Board,and sponged on gesso. 





I drew out the shapes and the black and white of the photo onto the layers. I added pale aqua,teal and  gold Shimmerzpaints, and layers of gesso, black ink, and mica powders. 

I painted all the BB with gold mica powder and water, and some Dragon's Eye Spark's acrylic paint from Finnabair.


To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads, gold leaf,glass glitter, glass beads, pearls,rhinestones, bark and lichen, white tulle,metal from Reneabouquets,Tim Holtz, and Vintaj,flowers from  Reneabouquets,Prima,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents. There are some fussy cut images from Prima papers.
As a final touch I rubbed on Prima wax in white gold over some of the stencil work, and around the borders of the page. I think it gave it a nice grungy look.


 Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
