Bloom Layout

I had a little bit of free time this week end so I finished a layout I had made in Design Studio. It's not a Fall, Thanksgiving or Christmas related just one I have been wanting to do.


 I started by stamping The bird and bee from Nature Walk and the Decorative stamp from Bliss in Soft Suede randomly on my tan cardstock.  I stamped the Butterfly from Nature Walk in Rich Razzleberry.   I then used my glue gun to attach a piece of lace, I had left over from another project, to the back of my stamped cardstock.  I inked my tan photo and journal mat with Soft Suede.
 

I used pop up dots for the branch at the bottom of the layout The other branch I cut apart and placed it where I wanted it to go.  After that I added the large purple flowers then my pearls from the Stampin' Up Pretties Kit.  I then filled in the area around the flowers with the punched purple and orange flowers.  I used two different sizes of pearls for the centers.   I then added the yellow roses after twisting the wire around a paint brush handle. 


 
The vellum butterflies are inked and placed randomly around the page.  I layered the single butterfly wing on the page with hot glue and then layered the other one a little bit off so that it looks like they were flying.  The butterflies that are in one piece I used pearls for the bodies.  This large butterfly was a happy accident as I was originally going to cut the outline out of vellum and the body out of the pattern paper.  I had my papers in the wrong spot when I went to cut.  I liked how it turned out so I didn't recut it.


For the journal spot I was originally going to use "bloom" in the center of it but decided to leave it for a journal spot instead. 

Thanks for stopping by.
