Hello all... I'm so excited to share my new projects created for the
DT Call from Heartfelt Creations.
Here, I decided to create a layout which depicts a garden and so I used a picture of this beautiful garden as the focal point.
To begin with, I took a designer sheet from Winter’s Eve collection which matched the picture and distressed the edges with a pair of scissors. I simply tore two of the sides creating an opening, crumpled the edges by misting some water. Once dried I shaded the edges with Seedless Preserves Distress ink and finally applied Clear Gesso all over the layout and left for drying. I then tried to arrange the photo inside the layout as I wanted and marked it with pencil. Later I applied some Opaque modelling paste using a stencil randomly around the layout and poured some micro fine glitter for added shine. I also did some stenciling with white gesso in few other spots as well and left it for drying.
I took some die cut pieces from Decorative Medallion dies, tucked and glued behind the torn openings. Used some die cut pieces from Sweetheart border dies, shaded them with Seedless Preserves Distress oxide ink and glued on two of the sides of the layout. I also cut out a piece of designer paper from Oakberry lane collection along with some Fleur border die-cut piece and added as an accent piece on 1 side, took 2 other pieces from the same collection to cover behind the torn opening.
I matted the photo and another piece of designer paper with white cardstock which is 1/4th inch bigger in size, shaded the edges with Seedless Preserves distress oxide ink. I also added Sweetheart border die cut pieces on the designer paper piece on the longer edges, arranged and glued it using dimensional foam tape, along with the photo mat as I required. Added some chipboard pieces under either edges of the photo mat layer.
I took some flowers and leaves to arrange around the picture. For the flowers, I stamped the flowers from Sun Kissed Fleur collection using Pink Peony archival ink on white floral paper, shaded those using Vivid Chartreuse and Rose Madder archival inks and cut out with the coordinating dies. Later I shaped the flowers by dipping them in a bowl of water, removed the excess water with a soft towel and embossed with a groove golf tool. I stacked the flowers using green colored round pollen, used the small flowers and the leaves to create small flower spray.
For the leaves, I stamped the leaf stamps from Delightful daises collection using Library green archival ink on white floral paper, shaded those using Vivid Chartreuse archival ink and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I shaped the leaves by dipping in bowl of water, removed excess water with a soft towel and embossed using groove golf tool. Once all the flowers and leaves are dried, arranged and glued them around the photo layer. I also added Crystal clear powder on the flowers by applying glue with wet sponge.
I used two sentiment pieces from Oakberry lane collection matted the some die-cut pieces, shaded the edges using Seedless Preserves Distress oxide ink and glued on top and bottom corner of the layout. I finished off the project by adding some clear water droplets, sequins and flower pearls randomly around the layout. Hope you all liked my project.
