Happy 2020 everyone. I hope everyone has had a great festive season.
To kick the year off I'm sharing a layout using the gorgeous "Love & Grace" paper range.
To begin with I tore the edges of my paper "Effie" & distressed the edges before sticking down onto some grey card.
Using another sheet of "Effie" I cut up the back using it to matt my photo. Each piece was distressed around the edges.
I distressed the edges of my photo also. And used cardboard between my layers.
I embossed my chipboard using Apple of my Eye, Singin' the Blues & Steel Embossing Powder.
Then sprayed the backing chipboard with Snow White Shimmer Spray. Then glued it all down once dry.
I gave my cheesecloth a spray with Apple of my Eye Shimmer Spray.
My title I embossed with Bling Embossing Powder.
I wasn't home when I created this layout & didn't have any green card with me. So I spread some Apple of my Eye Colour paste on paper. When dry I used a metal die to cut out some leaves. I was really happy with the way they turned out & will do more in the future.
Once everything was stuck down I splattered some Heavy White Gesso (mixed with some water) around (but cover your photo first)
I forgot to take photos, but I sprayed my flowers with Singin' the Blues & Apple of my Eye Shimmer Sprays.
I added some lace & micro beads to complete.
Here's a few close ups.
Thanks for looking.
