I love the Romantic feel of Shabby Chic layouts and the earthy tones of heritage layouts, add in alot of dimension (and hand cutting), metal accents and touches of lace with handmade papers....thats my style right here and Now.
I loved working on this layout as it was a Personal one, yes it took me ages but I had so much fun doing it. I hand cut 3 lots of flowers and layered them on top of each other to give alot of dimension ....then I heat embossed certain sections in gold to accentuate the ridges of the petals. The circle was cut then scalloped, and heat embossed with small metal dots.I placed some handmade paper behind the circle to soften the look of the PP and adhered Lace around the inside edge ( I dyed the Lace in tea to get the right colour).The Photo was mounted on two other layers of PP which were all staggered as I didnt want any straight edges.Plus alot of Inking on on all the PP. (Ive got close up shots of sections on my blog site).
