Here are some closeups of detail....
I did many layers,some distressed,some with punch work & chipboard layers. I also did some hand stitching, & stitched on strings of beads....
I did some stencil work, using TCW Art is & Viva Modeling cream (champagne). I stained the ivy with TA-GM chalkboard (decadence),& once that dried I applied a coat of  rock candy crackle. Once the crackle dried, I rubbed in some pebbles pearl chalk (off white), to bring out the cracks & also to try to get the color, closer to the leaves in the paper. On the hearts of the vine I used Viva Modeling Cream (rose).....
Shows some more layers & the top part of a heart. I used picket fence crackle on the scallop border & on the fancy trim I used shabby pink smooch,then inked the edges using a brown ink pad.
The resin angel & larger flower are Prima......

Isn't she beautiful!!!!
I dry brushed on some LuminArte' (heavenly white), on to the page pebbles & nameplate. On the outside edges of the name plate & the wordlet, I used shabby pink smooch,then inked the edges using a brown ink pad...
The flower under the nameplate is Prima...

I wrapped ribbon & beads around the photo,then made a flower cluster using Prima flowers...

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.....Rachelle

Maja Design
From the Vintage Autumn Basics I used:No VIII-BS, No.XII-BS, No.XIV-BS,
Ska vi ta en fika
From the Fika Collection I used: Chaite,En kopp te-BS, Mandelkaka-BS, Sockerkaka-BS.& Tva froknar-BS
Here are some closeups of detail:

This is how I achieved the Seahorse....
I used the Seahorse & a seashell. I drew on the seashorse,where I wanted to use the liquid pearls....
I then painted both pieces with LuminArte (Stargazer)
Once the LuminArte dried I applied liquid pearls. I used platinum & lavender lace....
I then applied a thick coat of  clear rock candy crackle.I let that dry,then sprayed it with 2 coats of acrylic sealer,because what ever is in the LuminArte,makes the crackle want to lift,but also gave the Seahorse a scaley look,that I you really need to spray on a sealer,or you will loose all the crackle.I then inked the edges,&added bling & pearls

I am looking forward, to see what you, come up with,with this months sketch....Rachelle
