Ma Cherie Layout

Hello everyone, it’s Pam here.

This month I am using the stunning ‘Ma Cherie’ collection from Kaisercraft. This collection is so pretty with a mostly muted grey and pink colour scheme and features flowers, butterflies, and damask patterns. When I looked at the papers the Bamboo Foil paper immediately caught my eye, and I decided to try something a bit different, and go for gold! I must apologise for the photos in this post-it is very hard to get a good balance between the bright reflective gold, and the black of the paper, and to be honest I don’t think the photographs do this layout justice.

Here’s my layout:m7-Edit-EditAnd here’s how I set about creating this page:

First I took a damask stencil and drew through the holes with a glue pen.

I also applied some gold acrylic paint randomly through some sequin waste. Finally I spritzed  some gold mist over the page.P1170624-Edit-2While that was drying, I set about making my embellishments gold. I painted some flowers with gold acrylic paint and misted some of the die cut collectables.P1170623-Edit-2I used a doily die to cut a doily from the gold embossed paper from the 6×6 paper pad. I painted the outside of my photo with gold acrylic paint also.

P1170633-Edit-2Here is a close up of my embellishments-some gold leaves, some mesh ribbon, the gold painted flowers and a little die cut bird from the collectables pack. Finally I added some dots of gold Stickles  and some adhesive rhinestones.
