Heartfelt Creation Wednesday!


When I joined Heartfelt Creations, Linda the owner, sent me some of her family photos to scrap if I wanted to. I thought this week I would take her up on that and selected a photo of one her daughters. This is a beautiful photo and was in color but I used a black and white action on it and love the effect!

I stamped around the page edge on this layout and colored my floral and leaves on the stamp with pencils and glimmer mist.
I will  be doing a tutorial soon on the pleat around the circle. I use my score board for it as I do to make the pleated accordian flowers like the Tim Holtz die. The flowers on this layout were created with the Carnation die, glimmer misted and inked.
