A Rose is a Rose

hello everyone!!

today I have created a project that brought back some fond childhood memories.  I remember being a little girl and there was a perfume I believe in the Avon book that my mom bought called ‘A Rose is a Rose’…… that is the inspiration for today’s page created for The Crafter’s Workshop in collaboration with Altered Pages.

have you enjoyed browsing The Crafter’s  Workshop blog this month and seeing what my fellow teamies have created!! i know i sure have. so much inspiration right!

so for this second project of the month from me i decided i wanted to use 1651 – flowers, letters,numbers. (https://alteredpages NULL.com/products/1651-flowers-letters-numbers-prikntable) . there was just something about that rose i knew i needed to use it. here is what i did.

i stared out my edging my page using a stencil and some modelling paste.

once it was dry i chose to use some oxides onto my edges of my page,

wet them down and then allowed them to dry

while my page was drying i cut out and glued my pieces to some chipboard and then i inked all those edges with oxide ink

i then wanted to add some flowers in my background so using the same oxide colours i inked some flowers with two different colours

i then sprayed the page again with water and dried it

i then inked the edges of all my altered page bits using the oxide inks

after layering and gluing my bits down, i then stamped some script onto my page

as you can see i also added some glitter and seed beads using gel medium. you see it goes on white but it does dry clear!

but it was still missing something…so out came my final stencil

and here you have my finished page
