Isn't this a lovely layout? I just love when I have a layout that I can use four photos on it. I used French Manor and Summer in Paris for this along with my Cuttlebug to prepare the mats for my photos. The sketch is from Jana Eubank and is simply elegant, don't you think? This layout was made for a lovely lady and I must admit I will probably make another to use with a different title and filled with family photos.
Look at these lovely papers! They are all Cosmo Cricket paper and wow are they nice to cut with.
I had to take a close up of the paper so you could see the sheen in the paper, isn't it awesome? I used it to make the scallops edge and the photo mats on my page. They were cut from the French Manor cart page 56 the scallop border. I welded two together to form this beautiful border edge.
The flowers were made from French Manor. I made them in 5 different sizes and altered print and solid paper to make them appear to have more dimension. I turned the edges up slightly and held each layer together with a large glue dot to add even more dimension. for the center of the flower I used Zip Dry glue as it is clear drying and applied 16 to 20 tiny pearls to form a 1/4 inch center of pearls in each flower. Didn't they turn out awesome?
Here you can see a close up of the photo mats allowing a beautiful embossed edge with help of the Swirl folder and my Cuttle Bug.
I applied 7 pearls to each scallop, and in this photo you can see how nice the flowers look.
Here is another close up. Since I was making this for someone else I took plenty of photos.
Don't you just love the pearls on this layout?
Here is another closeup of the pearls and a flower.
I hope I am not boring you with these closeups but I really like the paper on this and it was so hard to get a good photo of the shimmering effect it has.
Here is a good close up of the light hitting it just right.
Well I sure hope you like today's project. I am kind of sad to see it go. Thank you for joining me today and for your sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me to share with you.
