Here is a close up of the layout. The frame around the photo is wood. I sprayed it with Incandescent Copper Moon Shadow Mist. The yellow flowers are spiral cut and were sprayed with Luminous Lemon Flat Fabio Spray. The brown flowers were sprayed with combination of Mission Bells Brown and Cattail Copper Brown Starburst Sprays.
The fall colored oak leaves were left over from a previous layout I did. CLICK HERE.
The Dusty Attic chipboard piece was sprayed with Incandescent Copper Moon Shadow Mist. And the edges of the torn pieces of paper under the photo were edged with the same spray.
I used the different shaped leaves under the floral clusters. The filigree leaves were die cut from Prima's gorgeous Forest Leaves die.
Here is a closeup of the leaves.
I only adhered the leaves by the stems. I wanted them to pop off the page to show dimension just like a real copper filigree piece. For my leaves, I used Cleopatra's Copper Embossing Powder. I cant wait to test out the other colors I have. My suggestions are Byzantine Bronze, Caesars Gold, Midnight Pewter, Queen Sheba's Silver, and Silver Moon Turquoise to start out with. There are many other colors to choose from. CLICK HERE to see them all!
These are the real deal. Filagree Metal Leaves. These were my inspiration for my idea to recreate them. These leaves are brass.
Here is the simple tutorial to follow so that you can recreate them for yourself. I chose to do a copper look. Just right click on the photo and save to your computer for a quick reference.
Lindys Stamp Gang Color Challenge!! These colors are among my favorite, because they remind me of Autumn in the Apple Orchid farms on Long Island where I grew up.
