Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!
Today I’m bringing you a layout I did for the April 2021 More Than Words Challenge, “Perfect & Sketch.”
To create this layout I used Mintay’s “Secret Place” paper pack, a perfect fit for a soft, spring layout! Spring is one of my favorite seasons, the flowers bloom, birds are singing, and the Earth is waking up. Plus, it’s not too hot or cold! I love this photo, courtesy Fielder Photography. I think it captures spring perfectly with the fresh green and new flowers blooming. Check out my video below to see what I did.
To create the stitched background rectangle seen on the sketch, I used my “Ornate Lace” Finnabair stencil, some TCW texture paste, and Tim Holtz’s “Kitsch Flamingo” Embossing Glaze, then added stitching using a gold metallic thread.
In the photo on the left, you can see some of the splattering I did using Tim Holtz’s “Kitsch Flamingo” & “Shabby Shutters” Distress Oxide Sprays. The photo on the right gives a nice close up of the various elements I used in my clusters; cut apart pieces from the paper pack, printed beautiful board from ReneaBouquets, some gold Thickers leaves, and some beads.
I didn’t “plan” where my beads were going to be glued down, I just sprinkled them on, let them roll into place, and then went back and glued them down; maybe only fine-tuning them a bit. For my title I cracked open a couple of alpha packages I’ve had FOR-EV-ER! and stuck them down into place. I really love overlapping title words when I get the chance!
I must say, I am very happy with how this layout came together and I hope you enjoyed checking it out as much as I enjoyed making it!
Thank you for joining me here in my little corner! See you again soon!
