Hi everyone, yay its Friday, where did the week go?
Here is a layout I had fun with, I used the C.S.I Case File no. 39 along with Once Upon A Sketch for my inspiration. These colours are so summery together.
So I chose my papers first and then matted my photo.
I chose orange for the background cardstock and gutted the centre so I could make another layer which I matted onto some blue Bazzill.
I found a lovely greeny/blue paper which I used for the backing that I hand- cut using a template and some wiggly scissors, which I then inked.
With my background all ready, I started to embellish.
First I made the concertina flower using a tim holtz die, then added a button to the centre.
I then added more flowers, some leaves (from the C.S.I freebies), and some skeleton leaves.
I added a small journalling block from the freebies also- (expand your horizons).
I then added a tim holtz die cut swirl and one of my stick pins.
I then added some blue and yellow flowers to the other side, some brads, a pearl and some tags from the freebie set.
I cut out a lovely little bird from the set and punched out a little frond for its beak.
I painted some picket fence with crackle paint in white and added this for the bird to sit on.
I found some blue hessian netting and crinkled this up and glued it down.
I hid some shells in amongst the netting.
I added some journalling and some butterflies, with hand made beaded bodies.
I then added the title using some alpha stickers. Hope you like it and give it a go. See below for details.
