You Make Me Smile by Suzy Loudon

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.

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.
xxx Suzy
