Cherish Layout

By Sue Smyth 

I am sharing today a layout of my daughter, it is getting harder to take good photos of her, being a teenager, she despises having her photo taken now. I have taken a fairly lightly patterned paper, and swiped texture paste in the diagonal corners, while wet, I have pressed in Couture Creations Poetry embossing folder, remove it and wash off texture paste ASAP. Allow texture paste to dry and then brush randomly with gesso.

Spray with your choice of Glimmer mists and inks. I like to splat white dylusions ink around to create white light spots. 

For the gold flourish I have cut out the Couture Creations Chinti die in light weight chipboard. Then I have embossed it twice with Gold embossing powder  for a thick lustrous gold look. If you have trouble cutting light weight chip, simply cut it out twice in cardstock and adhere together, as the die cut precisely, the two will glue together perfectly.

For leaves, cut out Couture Creations Connexion several times from Green cardstock, dont be afraid to trim them in half to make shorter stems, and add variety.
