For this page I used a couple of older Webster's Pages collections (In Love and Everyday Poetry). I also added a couple of the newest Dusty Attic chippies to embellish my page with....I just love the new Branches and Berries and the new Leafy Scroll chipboard pieces, they are so intricate and pretty....Here is a photo of them unfinished....
The treatment I gave these chipboard pieces was to double coat each of the pieces with some white Gesso, then I lightly brushed the tips of the leaves with a soft green. The daisy I just painted a yellow center on it. Then I took some soft Chestnut brown chalk ink and inked the edges. For the berries, I added some Stardust Stickles and added a blob of Glossy Accents to give the berries a rounded look.
I thought I'd play a little with some of the Webster's Pages trims to make up a couple of blooms for my page (above). I took a section of one of the lace trims on the Once Upon a Halloween trim, I cut out a section, (5 circles in length ...see below) and cut the strip in half to make two different blooms..
After I cut the strip in half, I gathered one strip with a needle and tread and brought the two ends together, I stitched the piece to a small circle of felt on the back to stabelize the flower and snipped a small tattered pink rosette from one of the Websters Pages Bloomers strips for the center. ( also added a small bow made from a strand of pearl trim before I attached the pink rosette. For the other bloom I again gathered the bottom edge with needle and thread, this time I used a Webster's Pages Perfect Accents rose to the center. The pink of the rose was a little darker than I wanted to I just lightly dabbed the resin rose with some white chalk ink. With one small strip I ended up with two cute shabby-chic blooms!
To put the page together I created a ruffled edge on the 'In Love' pink paper (you can find a small video tutorial on the right side of my page on how to make the ruffled edge). I then figured out where I'd like to put my photo and embellishments and then strategically added some background stamping...Here is an image of what my paper looked like with the stamping before the photo and embellishments were attached...
The stamps I used for my background are the Websters Pages/Unity Stamp 'Beauty' Stamp, the Websters Pages Diamond Tag stamp, The Bo Bunny Midnight Frost script stamp and the 7 Gypsies ledger stamp.
Here are a few close-ups of the finished chipboard pieces and the embellishment clusters on my page...
The layered circle design is something I saw done by one of my fellow design team members over at Dusty Attic, Natasha made these cute circles on one of her layouts a while back and I thought I would give them a go on this page...I liked the result!
