To start with is this layout which features a brand new product from Scrapware - the 12" Doily Frame (Doily Frame 3 Large). This will be available in stores VERY SOON so keep your eye out! As I wanted a fairly neutral effect so as to highlight the red paper I kept the chipboard colouring to whites and creams. I have first given all of the chipboard pieces a coat of gesso and once dried I have lightly painted them with a light tan paint. To give the leaves a different effect I hae then sponged Walnut Stain distress ink over the top, bending each leaf with my fingers to give them life.
The following Scrapware items were used to create this layout:
LB32 Mini Marilyn Blooms
CH427 Marilyn Flourish Bloom
CH465 Foliage Large (NEW!)
CH461 Doily Frame 3 Large
A friend gave me an absolutely stunning photo of her daughter Zoe recently so I had to scrap it with this week's floral theme in mind .... perfect for this photo!
The chipboard flowers in this layout have been painted using a Claudine Hellmuth tan paint followed by a coat of Glimmer Glaze. I love this stuff, and I love the satin finish it gives the chipboard. I have then used Making Memories floral brads and Kaiser paper flowers as centres for the chipboard flowers.
