Rustic vantage look layout

Hello friends Pooja here at Itsy Bitsy's blog to share some crafty time with you. I usually  like to make mixed media projects and this time I tried my hands  on  a layout. I will show you how easily you can create a rustic look. This especially works out well for those who are not too confident about their colouring. The trick is, you just need to give a distressed appeal to your background using your inks.

Have a look


To make this, I have chosen a blue paper from Little Birdie's Chevron in Aquarelle paper pack.

Applied  Mont Marte gel medium gloss to make the paper a little flexible

Next, I tore the paper at places as shown in above picture.
Left 1/2" from all the sides and using a cutter made slits. Then, applied some gel medium or water and used a cutter to distress the slits. You can see what it looked like in the above pic.
I
Now comes the interesting part where I have used a score board to draw some lines randomly as shown in above picture.

After that, I have applied pigment ink from Itsy Bitsy with a light hand on the embossed links and added more colours - Burgundy Versa craft ink and Encore metallic copper. I kept building up the background with colours again and again until I got the desired look. Patience is the key while you build up the background with layers of colors!

I have mixed modelling paste with Sailing Sky Chalk Paint and then used a stencil to make a pattern.

Now that the  base colours and the stencil work was done, I pasted a dark brown card stock at the back. Take a closer look and you will be able to see it in the above picture.
Now it was time to arrange all the embellishments. I have used 3D chipboard frame, arrow chipboard, flowers, Fairy Dust and some beads for decoration.

I have coloured the chipboard with chalk paint and then given a dry brush touch up with  brown acrylic. Next I applied gesso randomly. I coloured all the chipboard shapes using the same technique.
I have chosen rustic zinnias form the wide range of handmade flowers available in the store. Finally, I arranged  all my embellishments and glued them where I wanted them to be and did some highlighting.

For highlighting I have used Fairy Dust Copper and Hearty Melange Golden. I  mixed them with gel medium created some lines with copper Fairy dust. After that I have used both the shiny products for highlighting the embellishments all over. At the end I spread gesso all over and also used some green metallic colours for a little touch-up on the chipboard shapes and flowers.

Finally did some stamping with Little Birdie stamps.






Hope you liked my project. See you soon!! Till then craft more and enjoy more....
