I got some papers from Creative Imaginations, not really realizing they where a horse theme, and wasn't sure how I would use them. Then I came across this photo of GN Austin who is ga-ga over horses! Perfect match!! For a while I had wanted to use a photo and cut it up as I did above. I think it looks real neat. I used a Prima 12x12 mask with distress ink.
Here is the sketch created by Leah.
Love is in the Details, my LSS, and Lori had put up a Dollar store for us, on location. She had some pretty sweet items there, and the white doily behind the butterfly is just one of them!
I used die cuts from Tim Holtz's Tatered Floral die and inked it with Weathered wood distress inks and put this flower together. I used a Dusty Attic doily and painted it with white distress crackle paint and inked the edges. This cool rusted birdhouse and flower button are just a couple more items I got from the LIITD's Dollar store!
I used Tim Holtz's barbed wire mask with distress ink and then outlined it with black and highlighted it with a white pen. I also water distressed the edges of the strip of paper that is horizontal.
I used my Heartfelt Creations Swirly leaves stamp set to create the leaves, which I then inked with various green distress inks, and distress stickles. Once it was dry [ yeah! for my heat gun!] I scrunched them a bit.
The pearl flourish I have cut up into 2 pieces and used on this layout are from Prima. I love the 2 toned colors and the glittered flowers on this flourish!
I hope you all have a great weekend and stay safe! Thanks for stopping in for a look see and please check out SOUS and see what the other designers have created for you. Don't forget to give the sketch a go and increase your chance of winning some awesome goodies!
