Scrap And Me "Pink Blossom 2 paper collection"

I have been honored to Guest Design for Scrap and Me. I couldn't wait to work with this beautiful collection. Pink Blossoms 2. I have so many pictures of my granddaughter when she was born, and wearing pink! This photo goes perfectly with the Pink Blossom 2 Collection. 

I started by adhering the 12x12 paper on a piece of 12x12 corrugated cardboard using Mod Podge. After it dried, I wet the edges of the paper and cardboard and tore away  the paper along with the top layer of cardboard exposing the corrugated part of the cardboard. I distressed the ends of the top layers and tore and curled it in a  few places. Once I was satisfied with the distressing, I let it dry, then brushed the exposed cardboard with white gesso.

For the base of the photo mats, I used the Paper Blossoms 07/08, mounted it on 3 pieces of corrugated cardboard and did the same distressing treatment as I did with the background. I stacked them onto the background. I cut a door from the Windows and Doors 2, cut it in half, and tucked each piece on either side of the mat. I placed a piece of cardboard under the photo, and placed it in the middle. 

I fussy cut the leaves from the Leaves 4 sheet, and butterflies from the Butterflies sheet. I placed my flowers on opposite corners of the mat, then tucked the leaves in and around all of around the 49 and Market Stargazer flowers. I scattered some butterflies on the layout as well. I only adhered the butterflies by the bodies only, then fluffed up the wings. 

You can see the layers of dimension. I finished off the layout using Art Stones, rhinestones, and then spattered white paint over the floral and leaves clusters. I printed out the words "I Hope You Dance", and adhered it to the bottom of the photo.
