I have been creating with the dazzling new Amelia Rose Collection
from Prima. Once again they have released another stunning range of
papers and co-ordinating goodies. There are beautiful vintage papers,
floral mixes and the luxurious swathes and detailing of foiled copper
and rose gold accent.....truly gorgeous!
daughter has just turned 18 in the last couple of weeks and some of her
balloon banners were a coppery rose gold in colour and I thought these
papers would be great for popping her onto!
de-saturated most of the photo back to black and white, leaving only
the copper and browns still showing before printing it out. The Lovely Scribbles
sheet is gorgeous and heavily foiled, so I chose to just use part of
this and placed it as a backing to create a thin frame around the page (
I gutted the centre out first to save for another page)
I took the sheet of Texture Lover, cut it down slightly and used a Black Soot Distress Stain
to just swipe around the edges....and also added a few splats here and
there. The page is already beautifully detailed with some vintagey paint
effects, distressing and some lovely foiled scriptwork.
In my DT
kit along with the gorgeous papers and cardstock I also had some lovely
antique looking book plates. I used one of these and popped in the
number 18, taken from my own stash of alphabets.
I also took a sheet of Dark Florals and Ticket Collector
(both foiled) and cut out various sections of flowers, scrolls, foliage
and tickets, these were then scattered around the photo to create a
semi frame (some were raised on foam pads for dimesion) and I also
slipped a small black doily slightly behind the photo too.
Using some Stickles
in Rose I gently highlighted some of the black ink splats to
co-ordinate with the pink blossoms in the paper sheet and also added
more letters to say Chloe from the same pack as the number 18.
Some black blossoms were also in my kit and I glammed these up with some Copper Stickles.
various places around the outer edge of the layout I tore little
sections and turned them back slightly, leaving a tiny blossom on the
finished off the page with sprinklings of copper and rose gold sequins
in various shapes and sizes and also a cherub button, which I removed
the shank from the back.
If you pop over to the shop you will find lots and lots of wonderful goodies....including the latest new 5 releases from Prima
Right, thats it from me for now ....I will be back later in the month again with another project with Amelia Rose
