Bloom Tutorial done with Websters Pages Netting & Whimsies!

I recently had some fun with the Websters Pages Netting/Fabric Swatches and the cute pink rosettes called Whimsies also by Websters Pages.  Here is a step by step tutorial on how I made these folded blooms.....










Here is a picture of my finished layout using these blooms.  I also used some of the Websters Country Estate collection to make up this layout along with one of their cute cameo's, their Unity Stamps and some of their Fabric Borders. 

I also added a few Dusty Attic laser cut chipobard pieces to this layout!  The top right corner design is one of the newest DA pieces.  I was going for a sort of Shabby Chic look for this page so I wanted the look of aged white paint on the pieces (the corner design and frame)  Here is a quick step by step on how I did the finish on the chipboard pieces.....



Here is a close-up of what the finish will look like (I just LOVE the Tim Holtz Rock Candy, it works quick and easy!  I used a blow dryer to quicken the dry time and still got a good crackle effect! ....NOTE:  The thicker you put the finish on, the larger your crackles will be....also, try to swipe on the crackle medium with the least amount of brush strokes as possible as the more you go over it, the smaller your crackling will appear).....

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope everyone is enjoying the balmy Spring weather!  (We just got our new puppy and boy! is she a handful! lol!)
