BUILD A PAGE
 
 
 
 First take a piece of pretty paper and cut down to 11.5x11.5 inches, distress the edges and adhere to your background cardstock.



Then take a piece of plain cardstock 11 x 5.5 inches and distress the edges and attach. 


Add a mat 10.75 x 4.5 inches, distress the edges and add your photos.


 
Add a doily and a distressed edge mat 8x7 inches.


Add another piece of cardstock behind this, 11 x 4 inches and distress the edges.


 
Add some burlap/hessian (silver) and another distressed piece of cardstock.


Attach some ric rak (pink) down the side and more hessian/burlap (cream).



Start to decorate with assorted flowers.


Attach some butterflies, stamens, string pearls.
 


 
Add more embellishments, leaves, bird, branch etc.


Add  the finishing touches, one more distressed layer to the vertical mat, a little tag for some journaling and add a title and two hearts - one with the date.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial on how to put this page together.
