  A hearty Hi to all the Imaginarium Designs friends! It's me, Patricia again with a post for you. It is Saturday here in South Africa, at least it was when I wrote this post...hope to find you all doing well and crafting up a storm!

Today I used the Edward Relief Window and some Flourishes to create this page of my daughter Chantelle.

The papers are some old papers hidden away in my stash, no idea what so ever who they are from. I did a little hand stitching with a few pearl beads on the page. Also whitewashed the background with some Gesso and done some stencil work with a mask and some green Distress Ink.

My Window Frame was covered with a thick, uneven coat of Gesso and sprinkled with Spring Leaf Chartreuse embossing powder from Lindy's Stampgang. After heat setting with my Heat gun, I sprayed LSG Fuzzy Navel Peach Starburst and Treasure Island Turquoise Moon Shadow Mist onto it. The Mists settled nicely into all the nooks and crannies left from the embossing...

My Flourishes were lightly Gesso'd, inked with Forest Moss and Walnut Stain Distress Paint and some Rusty Hinge and Glossy Accents on the Berries.

Loving the Distressed look of the Window achieved from the Gesso...I cut the bottom part in half, rolled the sides to achieve some dimension and tied it together again with some string and a Prima Glass element.

For added texture on my page, I masked with Texture Paste and aged Ivory Embossing Enamel from Stampendous. The canvas frame is also a long time hoarded element, and the Butterfly a new Prima resin piece.

Some Prima and Petaloo flowers and a Prima Wood Bark Heart complete this LO of mine...The 'YOU" was cut from the phrase "Just for You" and also inked with the Distress Inks.
