Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team August Blog Hop.
Welcome to this months Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop. I just love looking through my stash of Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies to get my mojo going. This month the color purple whispered in my ear. If you came here from the very talented Glenda Brooks Blog, you're on the right track!!
For the flowers I used HCPC 3468 Tattered Blossoms PreCut Set. I die cut them with the Tattered Blossoms Die. I sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio Frenchy's Pink Pouf spray. Then painted on some Lindy's Moon Shadow mist in Fantom Fusia. I gave the middle of the flowers a shot of Lindy's StarBurst Spray in California Golden Poppy then popped a half pearl in the middle and used some liquid pearls in gold around the half pearl.
I watered down some Lindys Magicals in Pop Rock Purple and washed it round my photos and flowers. I stamped HCPC 3323 Large Elegant Word over the painted areas.
Unfortunately the leaves I used are a retired stamp from Heartfelt Creations, Leafy Swirls. To color them I used Lindy's Stamp Gang StarBurst spray in Maidenhair Fern Green with a bit of the California Golden Poppy that I painted on to highlight them. The die cut Sizzix Frames were primed with gesso, then sprayed with Lindy's Moon Shadow Mist in Peg Leg Pete Purple. (say that fast 5 times!!!) I also painted on a bit of Lindy's Magicals in Pop Rock Purple from the Under The Boardwalk set, then sprayed it again using a couple of layers for a washed color.
I stamped HCPC 3469 Tattered Blossom Swirls Precut set stamps all round the layout. I painted the flowers with the Magicals as well.The corrugated cardboard that I adhered the Blue Fern Studios paper to was painted with Pop rock Purple, then sprayed with Peg Leg Pete Purple. I used a tiny bit of gesso around the very edges of the layout.
I took these photo's of my dear grandmother about year before she passed away. She was my Angel. She loooooved flowers!!
