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 Bird Waltz 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 poured on Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, and heated it until it was just melted.
I put the layers with the photo onto the page.
I applied Prima Platinum crackle paste with stencils and a spatula. I picked out Beautiful Board,arranged the flowers around the page, added the BB,then the beads. I added mostly Art Alchemy Paints, more beads, Prima waxes, and mica powder. I poured on a thick coat of Clear Rock Candy Crackle on the Beautiful Board.
To add visual interest I added micro beads, seed beads,glass glitter,gold leaf,iridescent wrapping paper,Prima Art Alchemy and Shimmerz Paint, glass beads, pearls,rhinestonestulle,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 The Botanist's Sticker Anthology, and Graphic 45 papers.
Thank you so much for looking, and have a great week!
