Hi Everyone, back again (after a little absense) with a layout I created on the weekend using the Ultimate Crafts L'Aquarelle collction. For some reason this came pretty easily to me which really says something. I can normally spend hours and hours trying to think of something to do but this one came together quite quickly.
To start I added some of the Anna Griffin Mix and Match Pigment Powder in red to my Embossing Paste. Using the Field of Flowers stencil I messily added the colour paste over my background papers. I then chose a Couture Creations Anna Griffin 10x10" floral stencil, added the white embossing paste to a couple of the flowers on to the background papers.
I next mixed up some spray using the same red pigment powder that I coloured the embossing paste with. Just add water to the pigment powder to get a nice pearlised spritz.
I die cut two of the Floral Bunting die and then trimmed them down. Check out the before and after picture. I then sprayed them with the pearlised spritz that I made.
Next I chose a couple of coordinating papers from the 6x6"paper pad and cut them in to strips. I inked the edges in black and on the purpley/blue paper I stamped a flower image from the Fern, Flower and Flourishes stamp set.
I mounted my photo on 3D mounting tape and then attached my die cuts to the reverse along with the strips of paper in a style that I liked. I then glued this down to my base patterned paper.
From there I mounted one of the Inspiration Cards on some white cardstock and ink the edges, again, in black. This was then adhered to the bottom left corner of the page.
I chose a selection of flowers, both from my stash and some of the Couture Creations bulk flowers, sprtized the centres of slightly coloured some of them using the matching Pearl Drops
in the colour Madagascar. My page had three different clusters of flowers. Once together I decided to add a stamped image to my background and chose the smaller of the two feathers from the You are Beautiful Inside stamp set.
Finally I added a few wood veneers, inked in a matching ink, to the page.
