You Sparkle

This layout contains something that I haven’t done in a long time – handmade flowers! I fell out of practice because I’m up to my ears and beyond with packages of blooms that I’ve had left over and have been saving for years!

I started by prepping my paper with clear gesso to cut down on the warping that’s caused by wet mediums – in this case, light modeling paste applied through a stencil.

While that was drying, I stamped, die cut and shaped my flowers, using some Heartfelt Creations images.

I wanted to keep it pretty simple, so I used a couple of pieces to mat the photo, then added the blooms and topped them with a DIY cherub.
The title is a chippie that my good friend, Maggi Harding gave me. I’ve colored it with Distress Ink, then a few coats of embossing powder and a touch of Wink of Stella to make it shine.

To finish it off, I added a few pearls to the corner of my photo and scattered a few more around the page.

A big, big thanks to my wonderful Daughter-In-Law for the photo of her Mini-Me.
