"Memories Captured" Layout for 49 and Market

Hi dears,

Vintage and dark is quite out of my comfort zone, I must admit. I absolutely love such projects each time I see them by some other artist, but never quite thought I can make it. :) Did you ever feel like this too? Well I decided to go out of my comfort zone this time, because I just totally fell in love with Vintage Remnants collection and I just had to branch out and play with them. :) I have to admit I quite like the result and I hope you'll like it too.

For the background I used paper N 02 and paper N 04 from new "Vintage Remnants" collection. I added some stenciling with Graphit texture paste on the background and some random stamping. Then I created the flow of my layout and put some colored cheesecloth along it. Then I embellished it with chipboards, laser cut shapes and gorgeous vintage colored flowers. I colored my chipboards with Rust Effect paste. At the end I added some highlights with dry-brushed gesso over some elements and few splatters of white color for the finishing touch.

When I was not yet part of this amazing Creative team I used to do "oooh's" and "aaaah's" each time I saw new Art Recipes published. I often went to the older Art Recipes for the inspiration. I love to take part in monthly Art Recipes and I'm sure this challenges will inspire you all so much! Can't wait to see your beautiful creations! So as you can see, this month we are playing with clear gesso, mini art stones, metallique waxes and icing pastes and we are creating in Vintage style and color scheme. So I decided to go all Vintage. I altered an old, empty tin left from my paints in tubes and I've hidden an altered Vintage handmirror inside. I used shades of light brown, gold and rose gold. For giving a bit extra interes to my tin I dressed it into new Finnabair Decorative tissue paper. I hope you'll like my project and be inspired by it!
