 Hi everyone ... welcome to my blog post showcasing how  I have used my favourite paper collection, Forever My Always Collection designed by Fiona Paltridge to create this journal page or scrapbook layout.  A very simple composition with lots of gold leafing and pen work to highlight the focal image or photo of choice.

1.     Cut the Heart and Soul scrapbook paper down to A4 size or leave as is if creating a scrapbook layout.

2.     Lightly brush some leafing adhesive liquid randomly over the bottom and right hand sides of paper.  Add some touches of adhesive liquid around the top and sides also.  Allow the adhesive to dry off to a tacky consistency.

3.     Carefully add sheets of gold leafing to areas that are tacky, tapping with an old paint brush to secure to the page.  Buff the gold leafing with a soft brush.

4.     Fussy cut several flower sprays in both coloured and white outlined from the Gentle Heart cut out paper , highlight the edges of the cutouts with gold paint pen.

6.     Run the My Flower die through the machine with white card 2 times.

7.     Use the offcuts from the gold diecut cards and adhere to the back of the sentiment card.

8.     Place and arrange all the cut out pieces around the page to best suit the focal image or photo/s …

(b)  Arrange the sprays and single flowers in place also

(c)   When happy remove focal image then spot adhere the all the elements

9.     When happy remove focal image then spot adhere the all the elements to page.

10. Add foam tape behind the focal image, then adhere to the page.

11. Adhere the sentiment card with double sided tape or adhesive.  Add outline details around all the flowers and leaves using gold paint pen.

Once again it has been such a pleasure to create using this awesome paper collection and I hope I have inspired you to include the Forever My Always collection again very soon.

Bye for now.
