Heather's Layouts are always 'fabulously interesting'


Have a look at each of the elements to this LO to see why I call them that:

the layers of papers, adding the rust, fussy cutting, the distressing of the edges,
the detail on the edges of the background,
the curls on the papers, the 2 orange/rust brads in the left corner & the clock behind & in front
 - the elements are 'fabulously interesting' & work so well together

‘Hi there everyone..
Wow, I had such fun creating this page .. I used the beautiful “ Birds in Forget me Nots” paper range,  THIS PAGE  FLOWED TOGETHER BEAUTIFULLY & VERY EASILY , ( love it when that happens ) the papers are just delightful to work with, and adding a touch of “ rust”  just makes it pop !!!  these are Perfect papers  for a vintage page with fussy cutting and distressed edges -  After fussy cutting the flowers I lightly inked the edges with black Versa colour ink, just to add definition… I inked the chipboard with Versa colour  ‘Polar blue’

My handy tip  -  layering the papers and adding a light touch of ink on the edges creates texture and   dimension, giving depth to the page.

Items used ..copper  Paper leaves , Birds in Forget Me  Nots collection, laser cut chipboard

Other items.
