Inspiration how to use styles, brushes and gessos

Hello AnikA here,

if my CT duties are done and I have nothing to do the next hours I like to make layouts “just for fun”. My daughter is at mallorca with her company to review hotels and to get to know the island for the customers. She already sent me some beautiful photos and I always love photos from the city, from buildings, or just stairs like in this layout.
Some of my layouts looks like a lot of work, but I promise they aren´t ! The work goes by itself , if you use Nicole´s stuff . And to prove it, I will write a description of this layout.

I started with a solid paper from Make a Wish (it was No 6) :

I applied a style from the Make a Wish {Painter-Toolbox: Shabby-Styles}:

On my photo I applied a mask and brushed with different watercolor brushes. I always use this brushes , which I found for free in the internet. Just google for free watercolorbrushes.

Then I started to arrange all kind of brushes or gessos . Some on top of the photo (with the blending mode “overlay”). For this I used Make a Wish {Painter-Toolbox: Grunge-Styles} : and the Make a Wish {Artsy Bits & Pieces}:

More elements I used are the Make a Wish {Paperset: Soapbubbles}: ,
Make a Wish {Urban Stitches}: ,
Make a Wish {Word Arts}:

Have a happy day Anika
