FREE to be ME

Hi everyone
Rachelle did this amazing work of art as a second layout to the sketch last month
We were so busy with update about the new website ..... HERE   and The Design Team call that I didn't get to show everyone in September
 BUT here it is now
I love how she has decorated the sea horse
(I removed the picture of last months sketch so as not to confuse anyone) 

The Dusty Attic Chipboard used:
Seahorse #1 (DA0047)

Maja Design
From the Vintage Autumn Basics I used:No VIII-BS, No.XII-BS, No.XIV-BS,
Ska vi ta en fika
From the Fika Collection I used: Chaite,En kopp te-BS, Mandelkaka-BS, Sockerkaka-BS.& Tva froknar-BS
Here are some closeups of detail:

This is how I achieved the Seahorse....
I used the Seahorse & a seashell. I drew on the seashorse,where I wanted to use the liquid pearls....
I then painted both pieces with LuminArte (Stargazer)
Once the LuminArte dried I applied liquid pearls. I used platinum & lavender lace....
I then applied a thick coat of  clear rock candy crackle.I let that dry,then sprayed it with 2 coats of acrylic sealer,because what ever is in the LuminArte,makes the crackle want to lift,but also gave the Seahorse a scaley look,that I you really need to spray on a sealer,or you will loose all the crackle.I then inked the edges,&added bling & pearls

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, Rachelle

  1. One of the most recognizable Rachelle's layouts. Can;t imagine the time that goes in to each piece but the details are breathtaking!
