Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo that was taken while we were visiting Jerry and April in San Francisco. Can you believe I actually used a colored photo rather than black and white??? I printed the photo in both variations but so much of the detailed brick and stone work seemed to have been lost in the black and white version.
To create the background, I started with a pretty piece of 13arts patterned paper, applied a thin coat of gesso. Once dry, I stamped a trio of Winged Beauties and the chickenwire design from Distressed Background Blocks. For texture, I applied the brick wall design using the Brick Wall stencil along with fiber paste followed with several different shades of pink paints. Once dry, I added more design using the Teardrop stencil:
I embellished with all homemade flowers and foliage using the following Die-namics dies: Die-namics Leaf-Filled Flourish, Die-namics Plentiful Petals and Die-namics Mini Rolled Roses:
For color inspiration, I joined along with Scrap Around the World:
while focusing on the color combo shown in this photo of the inspiration board:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with Once Upon A Sketch where the theme is "Addicted to..."
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)
