Mixed Media Scrapbook Page

This is my first post as a Designer for CraftAdda and my first mixed media tutorial.. So guys I would definitely love to get some feedback from you :).. For those who hate a picture heavy post, well this is one of them .. So Beware 😀
I just created a some scrapbook pages recently and was confused as to what to make a cover.. Because I wanted to give it an elegant and vintage look but without using browns or blacks.. Then I went with my favorite color Purple 🙂
So here is how I started –
I took my cardboard base, colored it with White acrylic paint  and then used my white ribbons to add a weaving pattern as shown below –

Then I took some Tissue paper and my home made Mod Podge(1/4th Fevicol + 3/4th Water) and covered my base with it, I left some space in the center just because I wanted a different texture and wanted the ribbon weaving to show through  –

I wanted to create layers, but I did not have much metal embellishments to start with. Hence I used the ones that I have to create the layers –

I have used some laces and ribbons, I have also used some buttons, medicine’s cap, bottles cap (The best thing about Mixed media is you can almost use anything to create a textured layer).. I have also used some ribbon roses, mulberry roses and leaves.. Then to add some different textures I have used shaped rhinestones and pearls and some Daler Rowney texture paste
I also added some buttons, thermocal balls, paper clips, different shaped embellishments. Here is the look at the completed cover –

Here are some of the pics from different angles, once I completed coloring (I have added more of the bronze color on the ends to give it an old and antique look) –
