Let's Make Today Beautiful

I was inspired by Très Jolie’s November Mood Board to create this layout featuring a photo that my Daughter-In-Law took a year ago.

Lots of layering and a bit of fussy cutting, along with plenty of flowers and other embellishments all came together to achieve this rustic look.

I love the papers that came in the kit with the jewel-like colors and touches of gold foil; there are several sheets of cut-aparts to make this a very versatile collection. (Luckily, Kim loaded our kits with two of each design so it was a lot easier to pick and choose just which papers to use!)
I decided to use one of the “B” sides for my background. Not only did it allow me to load my layout with a lot of details, but the ledger design captured part of the Mood Board perfectly.

I lightly distressed all of the edges before inking them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
The edges of the photo were treated with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink.

The typewriter was fussy cut out, inked and backed with packaging before I tucked it behind the photo.

I altered the Rose Flourish chipboard from Creative Embellishments to match the foil in my layers above the photo. After cutting the vine in two, I painted the stems and leaves with Metallique paint. Once it had dried, I colored the roses with the Prima Chalk Edger from the kit that I watered down and applied with a paint brush. 

After selecting a few of the wood embellishments from Kaisercraft, I colored them with more of the Chalk Edger and tucked them under my flowers.

I tucked another piece under my title card and then attached that gorgeous butterfly that came in the package of flowers.

I treated one of the Melissa Frances keys and one more wood embellishment with the same Metallique paint that I used on the chipboard vine.

I added some excelsior here and there to fill some gaps and called my layout “done”.
