Hello there Soul Sisters and welcome to my first blog post!
Today I would like to share with you a layout using this months Soulful Challenge Quote.
I used the beautiful Denim & Friends Collection by Maja Design. Some 49 and Market Flowers and Cheery Lynn Designs B862-Mehndi Botanicals 1 dies. (Which are on Sale at the moment :).
Just love the Cheery Lynn design dies, make your own and as many flowers as you need. I used two layers on the small flowers and three on the big flower (different sizes used). Finished them off by adding some Stamen (also available from Art and Soul Studio, if you can't find them on the website just message Annette).
Here are some close ups!
Following are some step by step photos of how it all came together.
I layered different size papers behind the photo and inked all the edges!
Next I used my dies to cut all my flowers and leaves!
Next I added my photo mat layers to my background!
Add photo and some fussy cut elements!
Behind the photo I added some Gauze! I love the grunge effect it gives.
Last but not least I added all my elements, played around with it for a bit before sticking them down!
I love the raised effect so I use foam dots/squares a lot for for both adhering my embellishments and papers.
Many thanks for stopping by, till next time............ :)
