Hello, Creative Embelllishments fans! Hope your week is off to a good start!
Today's project featuring sweet granddaughter Peyton is a layout that was totally inspired by some yummy Prima flowers (Jardinere Romantique) that I was wanting to use! The rich warm reds, golds and aqua were impossible for me to resist! Along with that, I'd been itching to use the Creative Embellishments Out of This World Frame. Frames are one of my favorite chipboard items because they instantly take your focus to the photo as well as being a fabulous layering piece.
And I love having the instant title work done for me with chipboard! Today I've used She's So Beautiful. My frame and title were basically treated the same way … gesso and then chalk ink in two colors to give me an ombre effect. It can't get much easier than that! Because I wanted to place the word "She" on my frame, I made it a bit darker. The beads of the frame have been lightly touched with some Clear Gesso to make them shine a tiny bit.
In this close-up, you can see the background work I did with a Prima crackle mask, modeling paste and ink. I also did some random stamping here and there with the Binary stamp. I wanted a tiny bit of a flourish for my floral cluster and decided on another piece instead … the Ornate Christmas Ornament! It was treated with just a bit of chalk ink and a tiny dab of Stickles.
Lastly, here's a close-up of the right hand corner design.
Thanks for coming by today! I hope I've sparked a tiny bit of inspiration your way!
