I have machine stitched on my first background paper.
Then l have used a border punch and 2 different stencils around the edges of my second background paper, and when the paste was dry added ink to some of the masking.
My photo mat has been popped up and lace tucked under the edge for extra dimension. On the opposite side l added a lace ribbon strip over a pattern paper.
To the little wooden birds and flower, l firstly covered with gesso and then added different inks and liquid pearls.
Now a tip to save time -
The branch at the bottom of the photo is a sticker that l didn't want to stick down or fussy cut, so l covered the sticky part with powder, added some dimensional tape and was able to raise it off the page and save time with the fussy cutting.
Here are some close ups
This is the sketch
Where ever you are, thanks for looking and l hope you have a great day:)
