The photo is of my dear sweet kitty Willow and my daughter Gabbie, sharing a quiet moment.
The corner treatment was crated with texture paste. Easy and beautiful and so fun to do.
A little bit of corset lacing goes a long way in your designs. I used a few eyelets from my own stash and took apart the jute that was in the September Swirlydoos kit and just did a little lacing.
The flowers were stamped, die cut and the color I used on the flowers is just incredibly amazing!! It shows like a fine Dupioni Silk fabric.Dupioni silk is woven with two threads, which create a stunning shimmering effect to the fabric. Often the two threads are of different colors, so when the fabric angle changes, so does the color.( Dupioni silk is woven with two threads, which create a stunning shimmering effect to the fabric.

The spray mist I used is from Lindy's Stamp Gang and the color is Buccaneer Bay Blue. If you have never used Moonshadow Mist before, your missing out on the results from this unique spray. Magical...
I just love the Botanical Florals stamps that matcch the Spellbinders Donna Salazar Rose Creations dies. This time I used the Swirly Leaf Stamps for the leaves. Love to mix and match the stamps!! I lightly sprayed a Wilton Doily with the same Buccaneer Bay Blue, just lightly though so I got more of that antique tea color with a hint of the gorgeous blue.
I used a piece of Dusty Attic for my layout and just spread some texture paste on it, let it dry, then inked it up a bit. It looks like a stucco architectural piece. A very easy project with awesome results.
Heartfelt Creations has the most beautiful stamps and coordinating dies. A new collection is revealed every month. So head on over to the site and check out the stamps. You may want a few for your stamping pleasure!!

Using a stencil, texture paste and a palette knife, position the stencil in each corner of the background paper and smooth the paste over the stencil in a 1/8 inch thickness, then lift the stencil carefully. Also apply some texture paste onto your chipboard piece. Let dry for a few hours. Cut out a square within the background paper and distress the edges. Place a coordinating paper behind the textured paper. Punch a lacy border punch in strips, ink the edges and tuck the strips under the textured paper all around your distressed square opening. Die cut the strip from the Spellbinders Fleur De lis Accent die and tuck it in the edge punched strip at the bottom of your opening. This creates some layers. Secure 2 rows of eyelets on one side of the page, and string some jute, corset style. Using a foam applicator, ink some Tumbled Glass over the edges of the page and onto to the stenciled texture paste corner treatments. Also rub some color onto your chipboard piece then hit the edges with a brown ink. Spray mist a small doily. Die cut, color and ink your flower layers and leaves. Layer your flowers (tutorial here up to step 8 ) and place a brad in the middle of each flower. Place doily to the left side of the square opening, the photo towards the right side and the chip board piece underneath. Arrange your leaves and flowers as desired and place some random butterflies around the page. Place your title anywhere.
