Over to Pratyusha..

This is a mixed media layout.

Step by step guide by Pratyusha:

First I coated the 12x12 inch chipboard with 2 coats of gesso.

 Used Tim Holtz damask stencil and the crafters workshop Art is stencil to
add in some texture using texture paste. I randomly stamped tim holtz script
stamp using black stazon ink.

Then cut different laces- A white broad one, rhinestone chain and a pink
lower lace to create a cluster in one side of the layout. To make the focal
point I made a cluster using doilies and used a pattern paper which reads
‘our great adventure’ from Poolside ephemera collection. The frame
Chipboard elements and the flowers are also added in.

The whole of the layout is then coated with watered down gesso. To bring the layout to getter I used Viva décor inka gold paints to add in highlights of gold color, violet, purple and pink.

The butterfly used here is a metal embellishment which is coated with gesso and a layer of viva décor inka gold- gold paint is added and buffed.
I then used the alphabet stamps from my stash to write the names to customize the layout!!
