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 Blue Fern 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 the fussy cut pieces, and then the beads. I added Shimmerz Paints, more beads, and more Shimmerz.
To add visual interest I added seed beads,glass glitter,iridescent wrapping paper,cheesecloth painted with Christmas Cheer Shimmerz Paint, glass beads, pearls,rhinestones,swarovski crystals,sequins,pressed flowers, iridescent wrapping paper,sisal,tulle,metal from Reneabouquets and Vintaj,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 rubbed on gold and aqua mica powders on several areas.
Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
