|Hello blog friends! I hope everyone's almost ready for Christmas! I am done with everything but baking and mailing a few packages and feel so blessed to be through already.|
Today, I'm sharing a layout that I created for the CSI design team. It was so much fun to work with these beautiful colors. The photos were taken on our trip to Hawaii last spring.
For this particular piece I had to get more of a fuchia pink than I had so, I got out my Gelatos and made the paper the perfect color of pink! In this photo you can see the little envelope that I created behind and between the banners. I used it to hold the journaling tag.
Here, you can see the dainty little die cut leaves tucked behind the photo and the beautiful chipboard. Also there is some stamping and texturizing with the modeling paste.
For the lovely flowers, I fussy cut the areas I wanted to appear 3-D, glued a little chipboard underneath and used pop dots for a beautiful area of interest.
Just look at all the layers..... I'm in heaven!
You can easily see the stamping, texturizing and embossing in this photo. To tone down the green in the leaves, I painted a little gesso on them.
A heart heart-shaped doily acts as an envelope to hold the journaling tag that reads, "When I see such beauty I am reminded of the WONDER of God's love for us."
Thanks everyone, for stopping by to take a peek. See you next time!
