I used background patterned paper that was of old maps. I found the paper pad at Hobby Lobby. I did some masking with molding paste to give it a little texture. Once it was dry, I sprayed the background with Flat Fabio Caribbean Blue and a small bit of Royal Peacock Fire Glitz.
I painted the frame with white gesso for the base. When dry, I scraped the bottom frame with a combo of Caribbean Blue and Frolic in The Forest Black.Then I did a tiny bit of heat embossing with Hyacinth Blue Jade on the top frame, then used clear crackle coat on the top layer.
The flowers were stripped from a stem I bought at Hobby Lobby for 1.00. They were a cream color. I sprayed them with the Flat Fabio Caribbean Blue and when they dried, I sprayed the very inner part of the flowers only, with Bouginvillea Fuschia and Pretty in Pink Pink Starburst Spray. The spray bled into the flower petals to a gorgeous lavender color. When it was dried once again, I sprayed the very inner part again for a second coat of Pretty in Pink Pink. I love the way the spray bled. It created an "extra" petal look.
I die cut the tags with my Alterations Tag and Bookplate die. I cut a thin chipboard along with the patterned paper. I adhered the paper to the chipboard for strength and dimension. I layered them on the background and placed the frame over them. The journaling was printed in Photoshop, cut out then adhered to the tags. I used a paintbrush to outline the words using Frolic in The Forrest. I flicked the Frozen Jack Frost Starburst spray all over the layout being careful not to get it on the photo, frame or flowers.
I have a collection of silver and gold metal trinkets. I heat embossed this silver flower with Hyacinth Blue Jade Embossing powder. It takes exceptionally well to the metal and leaves gorgeous color on it. I topped it with a half pearl embellishment. I painted the tag ties as well with the Frolic In the Forest Black.
