Here are some close ups…….
For the paper layers I used 2 sheets from the Cottage Life Collection, cut the main sheet, distressed the edges, punched in eyelets I had in my stash then weave in burlap string. I left some of the chipboard raw, just inked the edges with a brown ink pad. For the navy I used distress ink-denim. On the pieces I used clear crackle on, I first primed those pieces with clear gesso, then applied a thick coat of the crackle paint, let dry, then painted them with the Inklings-Giddy about Green & Sheer Bliss. I also inked the edges with the brown ink pad…..
I glued seed beads onto the string frame, chicken wire & film strip, & Mini Prills onto the foliage & grasses….Here are a few more close ups…..
Thank you so much for taking the time to look…..Rachelle
