Coral-Je t’aime


Other Elements used: Clear Gesso, White Gesso, Clear Crackle Paint, LuminArt Silk-Oyster, Prills, Chalk, Cheesecloth….Here are a few close ups….
For the background I ripped pieces from the Vintage Artistry Collection listed above. I Primed the chipboard with the clear gesso then applied the clear crackle paint on to some areas of the chipboard pieces. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with the oyster silk, & rubbed in chalk that was in the same tone of blue-green in the Mood Board. My inspiration came from the Mood Board to use the wild grass, that I glued prills onto. The Photo was framed with the circle frame then I layered chipboard pieces over the frame . I also altered the flowers with dry brushing on some white gesso & changed the flower centers with using sequins & prills. Here are a few more close ups…

Thank you so much for taking the time to look & I am looking forward to see what you come up with this months challenge…….Rachelle
