Dear Sweet Charlotte Layout by Linda

Hi Everyone
Our DT Gal Linda has created a cute layout to share today. I hope you enjoy it.

(Most edges have been inked with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. I have added dimension to all layers by adhering them to chipboard first.)
1.    Using greenish grey paper as base, dry brush the edges of this piece with either white gesso or acrylic paint.
2.    Cut the yellow paper 30cm x 135cm, adhere the cream punched borders to this and adhere down the centre of the layout.
3.    Add coordinating pearls to the cream punched shapes.
4.    Cut the blue paper 30cm x 18cm and punch or cut the narrow edges – I have used zigzag decorative scissors.
5.    Cut the orange paper 25cm x 13cm. Cut the lined journalling notecard in half and adhere one half to each edge of the aforementioned orange piece.
6.    Adhere this piece to the blue paper 1cm down from the top edge.
7.    Add gesso or acrylic paint to the edges of your chosen photo/s and adhere to the centre of the layout.
8.    Cut the pink label shape (with “DATE” and the pink bird on it) in half and adhere one half above your photo/s and the other below.
9.    Ink up the spotted canvas label and the large butterfly with Distress Inks and Glimmer Mist and allow to dry.
10.    Add alphabet stickers to the label and adhere in the centre of the photos.
11.    Add a Prima Rose to the butterfly and adhere above the photo on the label shape.
12.    Fussy cut the birds on the branch and adhere with foam tape below your photo/s.
