                        February RR-posting early since tomorrow is Super Bowl. So, we had the option to go grungy-I did. Lots of metals, micro beads, glass beads, gesso, Art Alchemy paints, Ferro paste, Smooch, Glimmer Mist, foil, and even some flowers and cheese cloth for good measure. Background was randomly stamped with several Prima stamps for interest. Roger and I celebrating with friends on a summer bike ride.

                        I love to hoard my metals so I went crazy in the Finnabair style here. Also, love my beads and paints but I busted them out for this one.

                              Well, here is a celebration picture and I’ll admit that I’ve scrapped this photo of my wedding day before, but it just seemed so perfect for this theme.

                              I dug deep into my paper stash and came up with two sheets from the August 2013 kit and an even older sheet that was part of a RAK that Swirly Mother Robin sent me in 2010.
                              Because I wanted to do some heavy stenciling, I first applied a thin coat of clear gesso to my base paper (Splash of Color #30302 Beautiful). The stencil itself is one of my favorites – Natural Flourish by Layers of Color; I used Ranger Grit Paste as my medium.
                              While that was drying, I cut a doily with the Summer Picnic paper from Prima’s Strawberry Kisses collection using Cheery Lynn’s English Tea Party die. I also selected a few metal pieces and after giving them a coat of gesso, colored them with Prima Metallique paint in Vintage Rose.
                              I cut a few pieces from the second Splash of Color paper (Devotion #30304) and after lightly distressing them, I placed them under the photo, adhering a thin piece of chipboard under each layer to give it dimension.
                              Before adding my embellishments, I decided to add a bit of stamping – just a hint – that would appear under my cluster of blooms and vines; I used my favorite script stamp by Inkadinkadoo.
                              The flowers that I used to embellish my layout are all some of my favorites from Prima that I’ve had for a while. The beautiful chipboard underneath is Flourish 10 by Creative Embellishments, treated with a heavy coat of gesso. This is actually quite a large piece; I cut it in half and placed the vines side by side.
                              To fill in my cluster, I adhered Prima glass beads in Plum here and there around the flowers.
                              The “Celebrate” piece – also covered with gesso – is part of Creative Embellishment’s Celebrate Word Set.
                              I’ve added a sprinkling of Prima Pearls II and some wood heart icons to finish my page.

                                Your page is gorgeous, Peggy. Love the colors and that stencil.
