Meg's Garden Design Team project: A Different Age

Hello readers. Welcome to another blog post of mine. 

I wanted to try something a little new and different with this DT project. I loved the new papers at Meg's Garden because of the subtlety of the design on them. From there I was inspired the try doing most, if not all, the embellishments in all white. 

I started by doing some texture medium stenciling with a damask stencil...or two in the back ground. I chose a irridescent blue mostly because that color fitted for me. and then I did some senceling over the top of that with just the texture past.  I then did some misting with the Navy Blue spray in the heidi Swapp Colour Shine range.

Then came the fun bit. Gessoing all the metal and chipboard embellishments. It takes a little while and you have to do a couple coats but the finished product is awesome!

I also used the Cottage Foliage dye cut and also some sprays that I cut with my Silhouette just to add a bit more depth.

Compiling the whole thing from there was pretty easy. I started to just build up with bgg pieces on the background and then tucking things in and adding the dye cuts and finally the paper flowers.

Once it was all dry I did think about adding some green leaves but it just didn't look right. I also gessoed a leaf and it still didn't look right, so I left it as is.
