Denise here today with my final layout using the gorgeous Antiquities collection.
I’ve used the blue and mustard tones again with this layout as I love the combination of the two together.
To start with I used a sheet of the mustard side of Antique paper.
I then used a punch down each side of the blue side of Heirloom paper.
After this, I drew a heart in the middle of the blue paper, then cut it out. I embossed the heart shape with Distressed Dots Embossing Folder then went over it with Saffron Ink pad to show the dots more.
I had to cut the heart in half lengthwise in order to emboss it but I managed to hide the join with some embellishments !
To add some colour and texture I pierced down the left and right sides of the paper then cross stitched with some mustard thread.
Once this was done, I placed the heart in the middle of the yellow base paper and made sure it fitted inside the blue paper i’d cut it from. Once happy, I stuck them all down.
The next thing I did was to mat my 4×6 photo on to some paper from the Paper Pad and add to the layout.
I arranged the diamonds I had fussy cut from another sheet of Heirloom paper around my photo and across the layout and used Collectables to embellish and as a title, some were raised up on foam tape and some flat.
Finally I doodled around the edge of the heart with a Gel Pen
I hope you like the layout and feel inspired to have a play !
