Its time for another Artful Crafting Challenge … yayyyy and the theme this month is flowers… So basically you can create any project but it should definitely have flowers on it 🙂 Those would be stamped and fussy cut, water coloured, or even Mulberry and Prima Flowers… the possibilities are endless.
I started with a 12 by 12 sheet of Maja design Coffee in the Arbour paper called ‘Grandma’s porcelain’ … I used the floral side … So pretty! I had already decided where I would place the photo on the page and then I used a netting Finnabair Stencil and A Clear Scraps stencil XoXo with Ranger Texture Paste in random areas. Then I used the abandoned coral distress ink from my kit mixed with water to add some colour. I also used Plum coloured acrylic paint to add colour to some areas… Similarly I used blue and pink shades of Tinkling H2O’s from a previous Artful Crafting kit and added them in random areas and also added some splatters with it. Then I cut some paper (maja design lovely weather and raspberry lemonade) to add layers beneath my photo and adhered them to my background. I then arranged the flowers and leaves around the photo and went over some of them with gesso and plum acrylic paint. added some metal embellishments and raffia along with some fussy cut butterflies from the Maja Design paper called Butterflies are free.
I covered my photo and butterflies and added some splatters of black acrylic paint. Then I used versamark and a stamp with lines to stamp in random areas and heat embossed it with gold glitter embossing powder. To finish off I added Finnabair mica flakes in mulberry and gold with Prima Soft gloss gel and then added the micro beads in black.
In the above pic you can see the xoxo stencil texture under the photo and the fish net stencil on the left… pretty subtle. The sentiment is from a stampendous stamp set called ‘Flower chat’ I stamped it on a scrap piece from Maja papers and fussy cut it.
I had a whole lot of fun making this layout… Reminds me of the wonderful times me had in Canada. Thanks for stopping by… I would love to hear what you think…. Do check out the awesome projects by my fellow DT members. And we would love to see your entry into this month’s challenge.
