"Awesome Times"

Welcome!!

As with the previous posts I have mentioned that my goodies box from Fabscraps contained 3 of the new releases being shown this year at  CHA. This collection titled Floral Delight is the second of the collections. It contains two lots of differing colours, a green and yellow range as seen here and a white and blue range.  I saw the yellow and green and immediately started fussy cutting in front of the television that night. Wasn't sure what I would do with it but this is how it came about.

I am pleased to present to you "Awesome Times".


I firstly layered a couple of pieces of  the Floral Delight patterned papers and distressed and inked them.


My fussy cutting which has been layered and mounted. These were really easy florals to cut out.


If you look closely you can see that I have done some shadowing using Distress Inks and a paintbrush, and I then watered it down with a little sponging of white gesso.


I have also added a lot of bling and some random stamping using my favourite postal stamps.



The Fabscraps chipboard titled was simply dressed using some liquid pearls. And for the tag from the journal book I added a Fabscraps Filigreee charm that I dressed with liquid pearls and cut in half and slid it over and behind the tag.


Some more close-ups of the stamping and fussy cutting.


And of course I tucked in a little hand dyed cheesecloth for good measure!!

I hope you like this one as much as I enjoyed creating it. One of my favourites, and I don't say that too often. Keep scrolling for materials and instructions, and if you like leave me a message and let me know what you think.
Thanks for visiting and happy scrapping.
