Flower Power as the theme this month – talk about say no more! Off to my Hero Arts digital stash to find the Hero Arts Pretty Blossoms PT002 Digital Download. I coloured them within photoshop and then printed them out on my inkjet printer on photo paper and then fussy cut them. I started with a white piece of card and clear gessoed it so it could withstand what was coming. Using a Kaisercraft flower stencil I used white embossing paste and stencilled that over part of the background, then I mixed some purple into white embossing paste and used a Prima stencil to create some more texture and patterns. Once dry, I grabbed the “Oom Pah Pah Pink” from Lindy’s Magicals – this is my most favourite one as it is such a gorgeous pink and then a lovely gold through it, it shimmers the nicest out of all of them.
I then dug through my paper stash to find some that would suit the purple and pink theme and created my photo matte. I wanted a little bit more purple, but not too much and so I stencilled some gold onto the purple to break it down a little. Time to dig through the flower and ephemera stashes to find appropriate pieces. I was struck by the friends messages and decided to go with that.
I got busy sticking things down and getting the surrounds built up using the Hero Arts Pretty Blossoms mixed in with all of my other choices. Setting up my new craft area has allowed me to rediscover a few different pieces that I have in my stash. Once the layout was almost finished I got out the Sizzix machine to cut out some leaves and glued them in and added in some Altair Art butterflies. A little bit of bling as the final touch and it is all done. I love it, it looks pretty darn good and I am pretty sure it fills all parameters of the ‘Flower Power’ theme. I hope you have fun creating your layout to go with this theme.
Take care all, see you next month.
