I created this layout using the October 2014 Limited Edition Mega Set. I started with a 12x12 piece of cardboard and a 12x12 piece of Kraft Cardstock mounted over it. It is amazing how the sprays and embossing powders shimmer and shine on Kraft paper. Once I distressed the edges of the page to my liking, I sprayed the whole page with Black Orchid Silver Starburst Spray concentrating it on the edges, then went over it with Royal Peacock Fire.
I must give a huge shout out to my dear friend Pascale Bernard for sending me the dies for the leaves I used in this layout all the way from France!!! I loved these elements in her work so much that she inspired me to WANT them badly!! So Thank You Pascale!!! Merci mon ami!!! xoxo
The die cut frame was sprayed with Black Orchid Silver Starburst Spray and then heat embossed using Midnight Pewter. I placed some blue rhinestones on it for some sparkle. The color of the rhinestones matches the shimmer of the Royal Peacock Fire Starburst spray perfectly.
The flowers and leaves were all die cut from Kraft paper. The flowers were sprayed with Kissin Kinickie Coral and Bodacious Blush, then finished with Clam Bake Beige. I rubbed them with embossing ink, sprinkled on Hibiscus Rose Embossing powder and heat embossed them . The leaves were sprayed with My Mojito Green Starburst Spray which was included in the 2014 July Color Challenge set.
I die cut the flowers and the centers were hand rolled cut spirals. Once the rolls were formed. I rubbed embossing ink on them and dipped them in embossing powder, then heat embossed them.
