|My boys in 2010|
For this layout, I used a piece of Blue Fern Studios paper from their Wanderlust collection.
|Blue Fern Studios|
Wanderlust - Lakeside
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
Celtic Border 3
Leafy Corner Flourish Set
I lightly brushed some white paint over the Celtic Border piece with my fingertip.
I embossed the Leafy Corners with Verdigris Ranger Antiquities embossing powder but didn't like how it looked with the flowers so I embossed it again with Pumice Stone Distress Embossing Powder. Some of the verdigris colour showed through giving an overall effect of pale green which I liked. I inked around the edges with Dark Brown Colorbox Chalk Ink.
The clay pieces were made with molds and Sculpey Ultra Light. I painted them with Prima Finnabair Stone Effect Paste in the pumice colour and sprayed the dried pieces with Walnut Gold Glimmer Mist. I then rubbed white paint over the raised areas with my fingertip to bring out the details.
I also painted some loose weave burlap with watery white paint and tucked it under the bottom of the photo.
The flowers were a mixture of different brands including Petaloo, Little Birdie Crafts, 49 and Market, Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
