Hi everyone! I'm up on the Bee Arty blog today with a layout created with the new collection by Michelle Grant called "Grateful Heart". Here is the completed layout plus a tutorial below showing how I created this layout.
On a glass craft mat or messy mat, mix some Olive Grove Mica Powder with some water. Smoosh across the base with some scrap plastic.
Take a sheet of Bee Arty white 350gsm paper, trim off an inch from one side and adhere the two spotted/lacey strips from the "Gathers" 12x12 paper to the top and bottom to form a 12x12 base.
Using the Lined A5 Stencil, lightly stencil an "L" shape over using black archival ink and a blending brush or sponge. Using the Starry Night A6 Stencil, stencil some Olive Grove Colour Paste (or Sage if you have the kit) over the area where you smooshed the mica powder/water mix. Turn the stencil as you go to give a more random look.
Next fussy cut the floral cluster from the "Love" 12x12 paper excluding the bird cage. The image below shows where it will sit on the layout.
Fussy cut all elements from the "Family", "Gathers" and "Bonus Sheet" as shown in the images below. You may use more or less elements if you wish. The photo and title layers have been adhered with foam tape for extra dimension.
Here are some images of my layout from different angles so you can see how I've created and embellished the page.
