"FABulous" by Anita Enright


Hi Everyone

Anita back on the blog with you today.



From the moment I first saw Forever My Always collection from the very talented Fiona Paltridge, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the range.

All Colour Blast products were from the Queen Bee kit.

So for the layout today and the my gorgeous photo I knew my background just had to a white base.




To start I cut my white cardstock down to 11"x11".
After applying a sealing coat of Heavy White Gesso to my cardstock I then apply gesso through the My Lady A4 stencil from the collection but only the flowers. Whilst the gesso was still wet I sprinkled the Sahara Sand Embossing Powder over the gesso and then dried it off with my heat gun.  I added some good heat in several spots to make it bubble.



Once I finished heat embossing the gesso and the cardstock was totally dry I mounted this on to the patterned paper that was the reverse side of the cover page of the paper pack.

Next I fussy cut all the pieces from the Gentle Heart page so I had everything ready to go to create my layering around my photo.  Using my Versamark pen I drew around the edges of a couple of the leaves and then heat embossed the Sahara Sand Embossing Powder  giving a nice glittery edge to the leaves.


I blinged up some of the natural cotton ribbon with the Bling Shimmer Spray that was part of the Queen Bee collection kit.



To create my cluster I sprayed some book paper with the Bling Shimmer Spray and quickly dried it off with my heat gun.  I die cut one of the Diamond Metal Die using the X & O patterned paper from the collection. I mounted my photo on some cardboard before added the book paper to the back along with the die cut, a paper doily and several of the fussy cuts flowers from the cut apart sheet.
After attaching it to my layout I then added some of the cotton ribbon to the top and bottom undersides of the photo.


Next I used the "Fabulous" chipboard sentiment from the kit and added the gorgeous Sahara Sand Embossing Powder to it, heat setting it. From my stash I die cut the My Flower Metal Die from the collection on some match gold cardstock.
I then finished it off with a couple of the small navy flowers, a little wood veneer sentiment, a flair button, a few little matching adhesive gemstones, and a Charms Creations heart embellishment that I had lightly sprayed with the Bling Shimmer Spray along with a few Bling droplets over the white cardstock.


Check out are a couple of closeups of my layout.
