"Wonderful" Layout - VIDEO TUTORIAL

Hello everyone! Today I want to show you my newest layout titled "Wonderful", and this is my entry for the 13@rts challenge this month. My video tutorial (mostly in fast forward) can be found at the end of this blog entry.

The theme for the 13@rts challenge board is "Frozen in Time", so I couldn't help but use a vintage photo for this one. Here is the challenge board:

13@rts Challenge Frozen in Time Challenge Board December 2016 (13arts)
13@rts Challenge #48 - November, 2016
I was really excited to see the challenge board this month, since I recently received some 13@rts products in the mail. The mists I got are gorgeous and have a beautiful pigment!

Using their Magic! Powder with vanilla acrylic paint made a really nice modeling paste that I could customize to the thickness I preferred. The Doily stencil was an adorable touch for the vintage photo.

Using black gesso to cover the 13@rts "Tablecloth" fabric along with vanilla acrylic paint, I was able to accent the picture.

To make my homemade chipboard title, I used my Silhouette Portrait cutting machine and watercolor paper (140 lbs.), cut three identical copies of the title, used mists to color it, let the pieces dry, then I glued them together to achieve more of a chipboard look.

If you get a chance and are interested, feel free to check out my video tutorial (mostly in fast forward). This video's main focus is how to create the background as well as how I painted the Prima flowers with acrylic gesso. Any comments or suggestions or questions are always welcome! Have a super week, and I hope my layout gives some mixed media inspiration!
