my inspiration today is a vintage picture, which can be a beautiful, family souvenir. I used delicate colors and only a few decorations. The photo plays a major role here, and the embellishments just exposed it beautifully.
Creating background, I used a great new product - a tissue paper. The paper is thin, so remember that the background color will be visible through it. That's why before I glued it, I painted my base with white gesso. You can also slightly wrinkle the paper when it is still moist. Then you will get very interesting wrinkles and creases, which can be beautifully emphasized with inks or paints. Everything depends on you and on what effect you expect.
As decorations, I used metal and resin elements, covered with the gesso to take on the colors better. I reached for the new mica powders this time. The Serenity set worked very well with the Carte Postale tissue paper. Thanks to these magical powders, I added to my project a subtle and shiny color.
To emphasize the details a little bit more, I used waxes - new beautiful color Blue Lagoon and an old one Bronze Age. Both - new colors and older ones - are still the same, great qualitatively and velvety waxes, with a beautiful fragrance.
I've made a video for you that I hope will inspire you to create your own project.
Good luck and have a nice day!
