Im up on the Dlish blog today with my latest layout and blog post.
The idea for this layout started with the most gorgeous watercolour flowers from the store - Little-Birdie---Watercolour-Heather---Blue and distress stains. I wanted a lovely soft and feminine background that ties in with the colours in my photo and I wanted to use watercolours to achieve that soft look. I grabbed my trusty distress stains in Broken China and Abandoned Coral which matched my photo perfectly and they happened to match the flowers as well, winning!!
I used the stains to hand colour my tag and white leaves, they are from a past Just Add Paper kit.
I also used the stains in my background by applying water to the page directly and then adding splats of the stains. Once dry I used a D-lish Scraps 5 x 5 Stencil along with a white gel pen to trace flowers in white over the top of my background in a wreath design.
Here are some close ups of the embellishment clusters !
In the above cluster I used Little-Birdie-Flowers in Heather, flowers, glitter heart, leaves, resin flowers, pearls, journal spots and tag from recent Just-Add-Paper-Kits. Plus a lovely pink suede tassel and a lovely butterfly flair button.
In the top cluster you can see the messy circle creative cut frame, pink mini bow, pink suede tassel, pink/white twine and an awesome die cut tag from a past Just-Add-Paper-Kits.
On the right side of the layout you can see the White leaves which i hand coloured with the distress stains, also you can see the tiny pink pearls and journal pieces which came with a sweet past Just Add paper kit which matched perfectly, i placed around the circle to create a frame!
Well that's it from me today, make sure you head to the store to check out all the products and bargains!
