Collage "Hi there!"

Hello my friends!
This week I have prepared a mixed media collage.

I used as the base an old paper craft that was a folder before.
I began to apply different templates using Prima Color Bloom Sprays with White Gesso. I caught a herbarium and I glued it with Finnabair Art Basics: 3D Gloss gel. To create more contrast I put some freehand Background stamps and added a few drops of color.

I also cut a cardboard frame and covered it with Finnabair Art Extravagance: Gold CrackleTexture Paste. To fasten it, I turned to the stapler instead of glue. I love the effect of an old framework, with the already worn paint.

To decorate, I took a bit of lace, newspaper, raffia, flowers Prima Marketing among other things. For title I chose letters of different sizes to provide visual interest. To give an uniform finish and integrate all the elements, I went over with white gesso brush and Finnabair Art Ingredients Glass Glitter - Gold Rush.
It is an easy work, so I hope it has inspired you to create your own fantastics projects! :)))
Thank you very much and see you soon!
Much kisses. xxx

I really really like this, so cool! Catching the Herbarium & put it in adding texture & interest. The frame looks so old & using staples works so well! All of it comes together in a wonderful mix!
