Zendoodle Flowers layout


Today I lave a layout that incorporates the Zendoodle Flowers rubber stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle, washi tape, dies, Distress Stains, flock, and lots of glitter.  I have to say right off the bat how hard it is to capture all the dimension and sparkly glitter that's on this page.  So I've got several photos to try to do just that.

 The first thing I did was to add some texture/interest to my solid piece of cardstock by applying Distress Stains (Picked Raspberry) directly to a piece of bubble wrap and randomly laying it down on the cardstock.  For the doily (from Cheery Lynn Designs), I applied the Distress Stains to my craft sheet, spritzed it with water, and ran my white cardstock through the puddles.  This gave it the contrast I was looking for.









I ran a leaf ribbon up the left side of the page and added the Zendoodle Daisy and Zendoodle Leaf multiple times (after fussy cutting each of them out).  I also added the Stem Daisy around the photos.  All of the flower heads are pop dotted for added dimension, as well as one of the butterflies.  The rest of the butterflies are stamped directly onto the cardstock base.  My sentiment is from Die-Versions Make-a-date die. (Since the dates don't go back that far, I cut and pasted the year together.)  The banner is both washi tape wrapped around a piece of twine and glittered Tear-ific tape (see how to do this here in the SNS Tips and Techniques section).

Fun page, I like those rub ons and the colors are wonderful. I have missed you! Sadly, my computer problems continue and I won't be back for a week or two (the computer doctor is on vacation and I am working a ton of overtime at work). My youngest daughter has decided to go to UAB so we will seriously need to get together sometime soon! Hope your holidays were wonderful! Hugz!

Happy New Year Anne and best wishes for 2013. I have just been browsing your fab makes in December ....which are absolutely fab. Amazing dies and lots of glitter!!!!! ( just spent ages sweeping glitter up today after taking the tree down. )
Must try the bubble wrap technique as I love the texture and the doily looks great too.

Such an inspirational layout, Anne, with "exciting" bright colors and textures. The photos are adorable, and resemble some in my family's stash as well. The stamped images look fabulous done as a dimensional border.
