Dream Layout for Creative Expressions


This week I am sharing a layout featuring the gorgeous Winter Flower stamp plate and Heartfelt Creations Antiquities paper pad! I love the way the layout turned out and have used many yummy products from Creative Expressions!!

The layout has many many layers of gorgeous designs cut from the Antiquities papers. I love how they provide titles, journal cards, 6x6 and 12x12 papers all within the same paper pad. I layered many of the journal cards, using one as a frame for my photo of Aisling! Aisling means dream in Irish and my girl is a bit of a daydreamer so I thought it was a perfect title for the layout.


The stamp I chose from the Winter Flower plate this week is this gorgeous hellebore. Using scraps from the paper pad, I stamped it twice in Sepia Archival Ink and painted in with Cosmic Shimmer Antique Rose Vintage Mist and Forest Moss Drawing Ink. I fussy cut these out and place them on the layout around my frame.


I used some gorgeous May Arts Cream Crochet Lace cut it in half and misted it with the Antique Rose Vintage Mist.  I cut some gorgeous butterflies from the Couture Creations Ornate Frame 3 in 1 Set and used the script stamp from the same collection for the background. The butterflies were cut using some of the paper pad scraps again and because I am addicted to the Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax, they are coated with that for a lovely shimmer. I used Perfect Medium and Copper Mica Powder to do my background script stamping, very subtle but a lovely detail.
