Board book ~ Bride page






I love this page, very busy and full of yummy things...TH crackle paint and Jo Sonja crackles worked together over a patterned paper, the crackle was so delicate but I sealed it with a good coat of gel medium before applying some gold rub n buff.
The lace was tinted with a little wash in a walnut ink solution.
The image was originally black and white but has been distressed and tinted to a lovely sepia tone before I applied a smear of Vaseline and did the credit card/peeling paint technique.
The marriage certificate was one printed out from a vintage ephemera book.

All beautiful, lots to look at here and as usual, I wish I could hold it in my hand and touch it.

Lots of variety in techniques and images.
