“Beautiful Moment”

 Hi there and welcome back to the iCraft Australia blog. Tina here with you today to share my latest layout created using some of iCraft’s beautiful new release products. 

My layout is titled “Beautiful Moment”. 

 I decided to create my layout using the gorgeous Rose World collection pack of 12 x 12 papers and the co-ordinating Rose World element sheet.  This entire collection is more than stunning, so choosing a paper to use was a little difficult. So I chose the first piece from the pack which has the most amazing details on it. And it is for this reason that I didn’t add any extra to my background paper.

My background paper was primed with clear gesso and then I got started on layering the photo using other paper from the gorgeous pack. I made some layers using  a polkadot piece of paper a few times and distressed the edges of each and adhered them altogether. 
From here I coloured the Wooden Embellishment gates using white gesso, and sleigh bells chalk paint. Once the paint was dried I sanded over the top to revel some of the wood below. 
These gates were then cut to go either side of the photo. Then from here I started adding in layers of the ready cut elements. 

This is the Rose World Element Sheet required to complete this project. 

I also used some of the flimsy sheets from the number 6 pack. These were fussy cut and some were left flat and other were heated over a naked flame and moulded to shape and sit more dimensionally on the layout. These really are so much fun. Something new and different and something more to add to a page. I also used the title words for my project from the Flimsy Sheet number 8 pack. I simply used clear drying glue to stick these down to the layout. 

I used some heavy white gesso to make splatters over the top of my layout to help some of the areas of my project to pop a little more. The white gesso was also used to prime all of my wooden embellishments. Some of the wooden embellishments I used were the 5 point pendant Wooden Embellishment #157. This was primed with white gesso, and then coloured with iCraft Metallic Moon White chalk Paint. I added a few cabichons to each large drop. The backs of these were coloured with the Charcoal Black Metallic Chalk Paint.
