Hello and a big welcome to the Papericious blog. Tina Ollett with you here today after a very long time. Postal deliveries to Australia are sometimes a long wait. But it was well worth the wait for my recent goodies box from Aastha. I couldn’t wait to break the box open and get busy.
My heart skipped a beat when I saw the colours of the above “Hooked” collection. Such rich colours! and so many flowers to cut and layer….and that is pretty much what I did. And this is what I came up with. I have called this “You & Me”. The photo is of my Mum with me only days old.
“You & Me”……
I have used both of the pink polka dots papers. One was used for the background. It was randomly stamped using Black Arhival Ink and a Postal Stamp. I cut more florals from the red floral sheet and layered the pieces around a half size black and white photo.
Amongst the layers I decided to add in some handmade embellishments using embossing powders and a flourish with acetate. I heat set it and then fussy cut the flourishes into sections and adhered the pieces in and around the layout amoungst the layers.
I also used a coat of the white Chalk Paint over the top of a mould. This was cut in half and added to the top and bottom of my photo to help elongate the framing of my photo.
I cut my title from the quote sheet. So many to choose from. A great addition to every great project.
To the centres of my flowers and to the title card I added on some glitter to help it sparkle a little.
