Here are the details on the layout I shared the sneak peek of yesterday. If you missed yesterday's post, this is a sweet couple from our church. They were married last weekend. Their mom snuck their favorite engagement photo to me and I created this layout and framed it for them as a wedding gift. I've featured gorgeous Leaky Shed Studio chipboard around the page.
Tips and Techniques
As you look at the three gorgeous Leaky Shed Studio Chipboard pieces I've used on this layout, you'll see three different looks. Here are the details.
To achieve this shabby look on the Leaky Shed Studio Harja Flourish - Two chipboard, I first adhered mica pieces randomly here and there with glue. I then applied Perfect Medium (Any embossing pad should work) and sprinkled on Fran-tage Shabby White Embossing Enamel. I left some of the areas only lightly covered so the chipboard and mica chips would show through, then heated the powder to melt.
It's the perfect leafy corner to this flower cluster.
Here's another view. You can see how I've gessoed the flowers to soften them.
Here's a close-up of the Leaky Shed Studio Double Heart. I've colored it with Blackberry Cordial Glimmer mist, then when dry dabbed lightly with Perfect Medium and lightly sprinkled with Fran-tage Shabby White Embossing Enamel before heat setting. I just used a very small amount of embossing enamel so the purple would remain the main color.
I've stamped flourishes at the corner before topping with a BoBunny Flourish.
Leaky Shed Studio has some of the most beautiful and intricate clocks. This is the Small Clock #2. I've simply misted it to color and then topped with an opaline embossing powder for a pearlescent shimmer.
I've splattered purple and gold across the page for shabby texture.
I've tucked the clock amongst the layers above the photo.
