'Precious' Layout by Linda

Hi Everyone
Our DT Gal Linda has created a lovely layout to share today.
I hope it gets you feeling crafty too!

1. Measure 1.5cm in from the edge all the way around the Sleep Tight paper and cut out the centre piece. 
2. Adhere this piece to the background page Boy Journalling Cards.
3. Punch or use decorative scissors on a 29cm piece of Sleep Tight paper and tuck into the bottom edge of the Sleep Tight frame.
4. Trace around the large flower from the 2Crafty Flowery Swirl Frame on the Choo Choo Train  spotted paper and cut it out.
5. Paint the WOW Precious Word and 2Crafty Chipboard Frame with white gesso and allow to dry.
6. When dry paint the frame again with gesso pouncing the paint on to achieve a textured look – I used a Stippling Brush.  Paint the large flower with yellow ink or paint in your stash.
7. Use the same yellow paint/ink to colour the WOW Chipboard Word – Precious and add Yellow Glitter to the “P”. Allow to dry.
8. Cut out the Journalling Card and add the Chipboard Rattle to it.
9. Arrange the photo and journalling card in the centre of the page and adhere.
10. Adhere the 2Crafty Flowery Swirl Frame on top of this and embellish with the patterned paper flower and numerous Decorative Brads.
11. Adhere the WOW Precious Word  to the top left of the photo.
12. Cut a 30cm x 2cm strip of Sleep Tight paper and fold to create a concertina flower. Embellish with a Decorative Brad and adhere with the Chipboard Elephant near the medium sized flower on the Swirl Frame.
13. Handwrite your journalling in the space created between the frame and the bottom of the photo.
14. Add a few Chipboard Stars and a suitable Layered Chipboard sentiment to complete your layout.
