"Baby Lullaby" features a photo of my daughter when she was just days old, (almost 20 years ago)...*sigh* snuggled up to a plush mouse dressed in pink girliness. The papers used are from K and Company. I just love their coordinating paper collection pads. See bottom of post for instructions on how the layout was created.
Leaves and ferns and even single leaves (not shown) give us such a variety of foliage.
The title was created by punching a stamp shape, die cutting letters, and adhering the letters to the stamp shape. then inking the edges.
Some closeups of the stamped and colored leaves and flowers.
I added a pearl to each flower center. And used Glimmer Mist and Lindy's Starburst Spray in 3-4 different colors for a variegated effect on the flowers
You are going to loooooove this beautiful collection. I know I have a tutorial in the works for some beautiful Flowers and leaf clusters.
Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see what me and my DT members have created with the new collection. Glorious layouts, cards and altered projects!

Die cut the flowers and leaves in various sizes. Color with Glimmer Mist or similar spray. I mixed 5 different colors to achieve a watercolor effect as in the patterned paper in matching colors. Stamp the flowers and leaves. Wet and wrinkle distress them slightly while still damp to give them depth and texture. Layer the flowers 2 or 3 layers per flower. Leave a couple of the smaller flowers in a single layer. Add a pearl to the middle of each flower. Arrange the flowers and leaves in clusters on both sides of the layout. Place your title as shown and place a few random butterflies around the page.
