I have photographed a few of the steps to creating this layout.
I have used Kaisercraft - Always and Forever Collection and paper doilees cut in half. I have also cut up strips of paper from the collection.
Once I attached all the strips with 3d Gel - Matte, I covered the area around where the photo mat was going to be with gesso. On top of this I a used mini stencil by Tim Holtz and texture paste
Once this way dry I used Distress Ink, Paint and Stain in Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet to create colour around the area.
While this was drying I inked the Dusty Attic chipboard title with Distress Stain - Victorian Velvet and embossed using a sparkle embossing powder.
I then put the layout together adding a Kaisercraft Script stamp and Stazon Timber Brown Ink, Prima flowers,Kaisercraft Collectables, Prima Art Ingrediants - beads, and micro beads.
Some close ups of the finished layout:
Until next time - Happy Crafting :)
