Merdrey’s Journey

Hello everyone! Merdrey here =)

These days i’m super in love with gel medium. They seal everything to anything! The one i like to use is Claudine Hellmuth’s Matt Medium and i used it in this project below.


Everything you see is glued and sealed with the gel medium! I love the old storybook paper from the Gauche shop so i cut it out and stuck it right in the middle of the Maya Road album. Next i glued on some lace at the corners as well as old dress making translucent papers at the top and bottom.

To brighten things up, i added in some bubblewrap stamping in white..


Then on goes the letters ( i love to mix and match) and the project was peppered with the Gauche Alchemy’s yellow mixed media kit on the spine. And there you have it!


Thanks for looking! =)

  1. […] The old book paper goes perfectly well with the Maya Road album which has the nice brownish colour. I sealed the picture in with Claudine Hellmuth’s Matt Medium. I especially love these old book papers that comes with my Gauche Alchemy kit. For more images of this project, do visit the Gauche Alchemy’s blog! […]
