DREAM - a mixed media layout in Black and Gold with a tutorial

Hello Friends!

Today I have a mixed media layout in black and gold to share with you all.
I just love the colour combination. I just wonder why I haven't used it often. 
It's the second time I am using this beautiful combo.

Have a look at the layout.

Some more close up pics-


Step 1- 
Cover a Resin frame with black gesso. 

Step 2- 
Apply some Twinkling H20s or Viva decor inka gold -Gold paint to this gesso covered frame and let it dry.

Step 3-  
Place the Rangers Bricked stencil on a black card stock 12x12 inch and spray Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst spray - Glory of seas Gold . 

Step 4-
Take the Wycinanka - Chipboard Cut outs. I used the Flower chipboard and coat it with Twinkling H20 -Gold. You amy also use the Viva decor Inka Gold- Gold

Step- 5-
 Adhere the frame to the page and fill the empty space with Prima Gold leaf mica flakes.
Apply white glue and sprinkle some Diamond dust to the sides of the frames.

Step 6-
Apply some more of the Lindys spray- Glory of the seas gold through the brick stencil on your design.

Step 7-
Use some rhinestones around the frame and embellish with some mulberry flowers micro roses and twisted bud . You may colour these flowers in gold and black or leave them as such. I decided to colour my twisted buds here. 

Step 8-
Now adhere your title using 3D  foam tape.

Step 9-
Spray gold spray around your frame and dry with Rangers heat it tool.Splatter some LSG Glory Of the seas Gold or Heidi swapp gold mist here and there.

 Once dry ,use any different colour of spray you like to brighten up and lift your layout.
I used some purplish/reddish tones around my frame .

Step 10- 
I used some wire thread along the page to give the frame a hanging look.
 And we are done!
