A Special Moment to Love by Tracey Campbell

 Hello everyone, Tracey Campbell here today to share my latest Bee Arty creation with you, for this project I have used different elements from two separate collection. I have used Three Six Five and Bohemian Bliss as the collections are divine, super soft and feminine, just what I wanted for this sweet photo of my two daughters from a few years ago.

I decided to use the New Year patterned paper from the Three Six Five collection the base as the pins, purples and butterflies kept calling out to me. I wanted to team it with flowers so I also selected the Free Vibe from the Bohemian Bliss collection. Next I used the Pan Water Paints and the Shimmer Cubes to paint the flowers from Free Vibe in a variety of pinks and purple shades. 

Here you can see the shades of pinks and purples on the flowers. After they were dry I fussy cut them all out.

I wanted to introduce a bit of a delicate touch to the paper so I decided to use the flourish from the Love stamp set and some Blush Colour Embossing Powder

Here is where I placed the Blush embossed images on the paper.

I wanted to mat my photo with a purple and pink double mat, so I used some left over purple cardstock  that I created a few weeks ago. If you are interested in how I created my own patterned paper with Bee Arty Products the just click on the link, here. For the pink paper I used some of the Symbolic Patterned Paper from the Three Six Five collection. I hand cut a 2 mm mat of the purple and a 3 mm mat from the Symbolic Patterned Paper. 

Next I adhered the mated photo to the center of the background paper over the embossed flourishes. Then I used 3 dimensional tape to stick the flowers around the photo. 

At this point I decided that I need a bit more texture so placed some cotton thread underneath the fussy cut flowers.

To finish off I cut the words A Special Moment to Love form the Sweet Talk patterned paper in the Bohemian Bliss collection and adhered it them down the left hand side of the flowers. For a finishing touch I added a few pink paper flowers.

Here is the final layout and how it turned out, I really love the soft delicate look, it is pretty and feminine. Bohemian Bliss and Three Six Five collection really work well together and compliment each other nicely.

If you decide to use the two collections together I would really love to see what you come up with, so just leave a comment and I will get in touch to find out how you have used them.

A few  close ups before I go.

I hope I have brought you a bit of inspiration. 
Take care
