Here are some close ups....  

Shows paper layers using Beauty Abound-BS, that I did some punch work, glued onto black cardstock, distressed the edges & hand stitching. I glued pieces of black corrugated paper into the layers, that I had painted with the inklings-emerald city & the silk-iridescent blue. I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, then painted on clear crackle onto some of the pieces. Once the crackle dried I played with the colors I listed above....
I altered the Floral Mixology Flowers by painting the orange ones with the cowabunga copper, the green ones with the iridescent green, & the blue ones with the iridescent blue. I also altered the flower centers, with using Prills-Power Outage, & dyed mini art stones..
I matted the photo with the Harmony-BS sheet, primed it with clear gesso, painted on the clear crackle, and placed the frame onto the wet crackle...
Here are a few more close ups....

Thank you so much for taking the time to look....Rachelle
