My layout has also been inspired by several inspiration boards from 3 different challenges, below.
I started with a Kaisercraft 'Key to my Heart' paper. I layered strips of scrap paper, lace and drywall tape under the photo area. Then applied texture paste thru a stencil before giving the area a coat of gesso. I randomly touched areas with a script stamp then got to work with 2 different Lindy's Stamp Gang mists (listed below). The Dusty Attic number panel was then attached under the photo after it was painted several times and aged. Prima glass beads and micro beads were then attached. A couple of I am Roses & leaves finish the page.
Before attaching the photo everything was again touched up with the Lindy's Stamp Gang mists - the page is shimmering sadly not shown in the photo.
Enjoy these closeups:
I REALLY struggled with this page infact I walked away from it several times without a clue as to how to progress. After the background was done I nearly put it all in the rubbish until I pulled out this awesome Dusty Attic number panel. I challenged myself to use minimal flowers - yay I did achieve this.
Challenges I am entering this into along with their inspiration boards and products used are as follows:
Dusty Attic products used are DA802 Zippers, DA1026 Heart Arrows #2, DA11704 Live Beautifully, DA1050 Number Panel Large
Scrap Around the World I was inspired by the soft tones of this board, and the word 'Happiness' which is how you feel after looking at this cute photo.
I'll also be sharing this with my new friends on the Finnabair facebook page I'm following.
Thanks for visiting, I'd love to hear what you think of this.
