Heather's Layout


Heather explains her project:

'Hello, Heather here today sharing one of my creations  with the stunning Christmas papers .
I used a base of bazzill brown cardstock , stamped with black ink using a Prima stamp .
Next I Added to the background by randomly placing the crafters workshop mask on the page, and inking with Grape  Versa color.
This paper offers such rich velvety colors  which  match perfectly with the deep velvet antique flowers. 
I mounted the photo in layers with the Christmas  papers and  I clustered the rich velvet flowers, die cut leaves and the stunning organza flower around my photo .
The keys are altered with gesso and ink and stitched to the page .
I distressed  the papers by rubbing lightly with an emery board .
These papers take on a different feel and look with a light distressing , it brings out the design  and amplifies the border punch pattern .
Denise has designed these beautiful papers with such  amazing diversity .
The leaves are all from the one design and yet they look so individual in a cluster , all blending together .
All the different tones and hues add to the magic .'

It is certainly a magical layout Heather - well done. I find it incredible to believe that this LO has been done with Christmas papers - I keep on looking at it.  Fantastic & very beautifully done.  Love all the layers behind the little girl;  the leaves are gorgeous & the flowers in ivory & purple finish the LO beautifully. 
Bye for now
