March Inspiration with Pascale

Hi everyone, Pascale here today to share with you three new layouts.

"  Mont Saint Michel "
I continue my series of well-known French monuments:  
The Mont Saint Michel, in Normandy.

I chose to work on a natural Kraft paper. After gluing some pieces of a book,
Washi tape and punched papers, I covered everything with watered gesso.
 I applied some gesso with a mask to add some texture. I then colored my
 background with Gelatos and Twinkling H2O watercolors.
I always add some stamps when my whole layout is finished.

I colored the Silk Diamante Flower that were too white for my layout,
 with one of the Twinkling colors I used on the background.

The color of the Apple Blossom was a perfect match with the photo. 
I cut the Floral Spray in several pieces.

Apple Blossom - Aubergine/White
Silk Diamante - White
Flower Spray - Black
Washi Tape - FavouriteThings

" Rusty Door "
I found this photo on the Internet. Unfortunately there was no indication
 where this photo has been taken.

I made my background to match the photo using a lot of Twinkling H2O watercolors. 
I used the same to color Bird Design metal embellishment as well as the handmade butterfly.

The bright colors I used to color the leaves help to show off the beautiful Heirloom flowers. 

I colored also the Flower Spray, originally orange, with a more rusty color.

 I also added some strips of  Skeleton Mesh.
 It helps to add some lightness to the composition.

" Potentilla "

I've taken this photo just after a rain shower.
The color of the Heirloom flower was a perfect match with the Potentilla.

I also added an Apple Blossom in ivory to add some contrast.

I added some Olive Skeleton Mesh that I tore apart to add some lightness.
