Reneabouquets Design Team Page,Collect Beautiful Moments, by Melissa Larson

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a new page for the amazing Reneabouquets. Go and see all the fun treasures there!

To make this page I applied clear gesso to 49 and Market 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 the layers with the photo onto the page.

 I applied Prima Platinum crackle paste with a stencil and a spatula. I picked out Beautiful Board,arranged the flowers around the page, and added the BB. I layered in all the fussy cut pieces, and then the beads. I added Shimmerz Paints, more beads, and more Shimmerz.

To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter,regular glitter,gold leaf, glass beads, pearls,rhinestones,swarovski crystals,sequins,pressed flowers, a feather, cheesecloth,iridescent wrapping paper,sisal,metal from Reneabouquets and Vintaj,a shell, glass pebbles,flowers from  Reneabouquets and Prima,and bling and metal from my stash. Most of the things are glued on individually with Glossy Accents.I used double sided foam tape for the flowers and some other things, and to put the cardboard layers together.I used  fussy cut images from Graphic 45 papers. I flicked on gold and aqua Jaquard mica powder, and rubbed on Prima wax on the metal frame and key. I rubbed on gold mica powder on a lot of surfaces, to kind of tie things together.

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