"Crazy for You" Layout for Donna Salazar

I have a layout to share with you today created with
gorgeous Donna Salazar Products.

This is an engagement shot of Joseph and Rachel. They're happily married now,
but I still enjoy going back and creating pages for these fun photos.

"Crazy for You"

Mistra Hoolahan provides a gorgeous sketch each month
designed to work with Donna's products and signature colors.
I've used her sketch as inspiration for my layout.

Tips and Techniques
These blossoms are created with Donna's Bitty Blossoms Dies.
My tutorial can be found here.

I handcrafted the larger Open Lace Rose but used stamen for the center rather than a decorative brad. My tutorial for these flowers can be found here

The background is stamped with Donna's Art Gone Wild stamps and inked with Mix'd Media Inx in the colors featured on the April Sketch: Pewter, Peridot, and Patina.
The page edges are also inked and stamped.

The bird and love sentiment are fussy cut from the
Natural Beauty embossed image page.

The bling is from Donna's Want2Scrap Build Your Own Bling.

Embroidery thread is tucked around the clusters for added texture.

I hope you've been inspired to grab some inky, girly Donna Salazar products
and create a page for some of your favorite photos!
