Here is my latest layout I have done, using a sketch from SKISSEDILLA.
For this one- I first chose all my papers ( Prima Natures Garden) and cardstock first, then gathered all my co-ordinating embellishments and decided to make some matching flowers.
I made the three cream ones in some mulberry paper, using a Donna Sallazer flower die.
Then I made the tree by using a mask and some texture paste and masked straight onto the paper. I then made another tree by masking onto some plain cardstock and when dry I cut it out and placed it on top of the other one for some dimension. I then added some gold paint to accent it.
I matted my photos in colored cardstock and inked the edges and glued all this down.I then ripped my edges to about a 10x10 inch background. I adhered this onto the plain background card.
I then added lace, netting and a doily around the edges.
Next I turned down the top right hand corner and decorated with flowers.
I cut out three small birds from the Prima paper (can you spot them all?) and inked them and attached to my page.
I added my hand made flowers and assorted roses, leaves etc.
I decorated my textured paste tree with mini rose buds.
I die cut three small butterflies and added pearls to their bodies.
I added a pearly swirl (Prima) and other bits and peices.
The twig I picked up off the beach!
Last but not least I added the title.
And I think thats about it! (See sketch below). I hope you like it and give the sketch a go.
