FabScraps Friday

This week I am playing with the beautiful new collection from FabScraps, The Rustic Collection.  The photo is from a Photoshoot I did a while back. The mommy knows, everytime I use baby Abigails photo, she gets the layout!! Sweet deal on both parts. Who said blue was just for boys!!??

I die cut the flowers from Spellbinders/Donna Salazar Grand Peony Die. Did a little Spiral Rose from small scraps and added a pearl to the middle.

The title Dreamer is a chipboard piece I painted with Lumierre Paint. The word Beautiful was a file I created in Photoshop, printed up and printed onto a scrap of FabScraps paper, cut out the letters and adhered them too a Tattered Banner die cut. The circle was done ining my Decorative Circle Punch Tutorial.

The flowers closely resemble my Swirly Hibiscus Tutorial except that I used  my Coffee Filter Spiral Rose Tutorial  for the middles.

Supplies Used:
FabScrapsThe Rustic Collection C48 004
FabScraps die cut DC49 019 Dreamer
FabScraps paper book MC0049
Martha Stewart Punch
Donna Salazar Grand Peony die by Spellbinders
Distress Ink Vintage Photo
Tim Holtz Tattered Banner Die
Lumiere paint

Ink background paper The Rustic collection C48 004. Using the opposite side of another piece of the same paper, cut it down to 10 1/2 x 10 1/2. Edge distress and ink the edges. Adhere to the background paper but leave about 1/2 inch of the edges free of adhesive. Using the scrap strips left from cutting down the paper, use a decorative punch and punch both sides of the strips, and then cut the strips in half. Tuck the punched strips under and between the edges of the 2 papers all the way around.  On the underneath side of your LO, carefully cut out the excess background paper in a square. This will give you extra paper to die cut the flowers. I used Donna Salazars Grand Peony Die for the flowers. Wrinkle and ink each flower for dimension, then layer the flowers and top with a tiny spiral rose using paper from the paper book MC0049 to create them. Place a pearl in the middle of each flower. Cut and ink leaves from the same paper. Cut a circle and punch around the circle using a corner punch then cut out an inner circle. Adhere the decorative circle to the middle of the layout. Arrange your flowers and leaves in the lower right hand corner of the circle. Mat your photo and edge distress and ink the mat. Place the photo in the middle of the circle. Paint the chipboard DC49 019 Dreamer and adhere to top as shown. Using smaller letters adhere them to a die cut banner and place over title as shown.
