I painted the board with some acrylic paint and then stamped it with the stripey stamp from the Wendy Vecchi It's More Flower Art.
I then used a small canvas, painted it with Gesso and then edged it with Salty Ocean Distress Paint.
I dried it off and then edged it with a darker blue acrylic paint.
I painted some old book paper with Gesso, then stamped over it using the script stamp from the Tim Holtz French Marketplace set using Salty Ocean Distress Paint. I then used some cut 'n' dry foam to add a little more Distress Paint around then edge. I then stuck this onto the mini canvas.
For the page I've used a sheet from the Tim Holtz Shabby Chic paper pad. I used some watered down Gesso over it as I wanted that whitewashed wall look. I've used the Dina Wakley Vine stencil with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Inks, then stuck the photo in place. I wanted to carry on the cobbled look from the photo onto the page. I've used some Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste which I've mixed with some acrylic paint and then applied through a stencil.
To frame the mini canvas I've used Wendy Vecchi Art Part shutters. Now, if you've ever been to France you'll know that the shutters are very often a pale blue. So, I mixed some Gesso with a tiny drop of Salty Ocean Distress Paint and painted them.
I've used some more painted book page underneath the mini canvas and shutters and also a filigree metal embellishment.
I wanted to have red flowers to remind me of the gorgeous red Geraniums that grow in the flower boxes on what seems like every window sill. I've used Kraft Glassine paper and heated it first so the wax melts and then used Festive Berries Distress Stains over it. I've then used the Tattered Flowers strip die and cut several small flowers and layered them up. The swirls are cut using the Festive Greeney strip die.
I wanted to add some journalling to my page so I punched a circle from some card and used the negative as a stencil and sponged some Gesso over it and then some blue acrylic paint. I used one of the punched circles and added it to the corner of the photo.
The Travel tag is wooden and I've painted it with acrylic paint and added a rub on mounted onto a Filigree metal embellishment. I mounted the whole page onto a sheet of Kraft card and tore the top layer so that it showed through in places. I then rubbed Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the edge.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
