'Persevere' Layout by Narelle

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

1.  Use  "dream come true" paper as the base- ( trim centre out to reuse as most of the paper is going to be covered)
2. Trim "persevere" paper to 29.5 x 29.5, ink edges then Use an aqua brush or wet paint brush to wet the edges of  paper and roll the edges in, add more ink until the desired look is achieved.
3.  Cut a Photo mat 11.5 x 16.5cm from the reverse side of the centre of "dreams come true" paper that was cut out in step 1. Ink the edges,wet and roll.  Adhere a photo using foam tape.
4. Cut 4 tags from the "sweet dreams" paper, along with a scalloped tab and the phrase "never give up hope".  From the "scattered wishes" paper cut a yellow flower.  Adhere the flower, tab and tags on the base as shown
5.  Adhere photo over tags and add journalling stickers and word stickers from sticker sheet.  
6. Ink chipboard bird cage and adhere on the right side of the layout using Helmar 450 glue.
7.  Add clusters of flowers in the lower right and upper left corners of the photo and at the top of the bird cage.
