Layout and a tag...

 Lisa here today, bringing you 2 more projects using Ombre Dreams and wonderful chipboard from Blue Fern Studios.The Ombre Dreams papers are so versatile. Although they are all watercolor pastel colors, you can dress them up in vibrant colors and it still wont take away from the beauty of the papers. To prepare my layout, I used 2 different papers from the collection. I mounted them on cardboard after using a border punch for the paper in the middle. I used molding paste and a mask for the background.

   The small Circle Flourish Frame is BIG in design.There are so many different ways to adorn your chipboard. I used Lindys Flat Magicals to color all of my pieces, including my die cut leaves, and the spatters on the layout. I added a few pearls and gems to the middles of my flowers on the Circle Flourish piece. I touched it here and there with some clear crackle medium for texture.

 For the Bohemian Butterflies, I primed them with white gesso, and after they dried, painted them with the Magicals in 2 colors. Then added pearls to their antennae.

My next project is a tag I created with the cutout pieces from my 12x12 layout above. I used 2 layers and did some machine sewing around the edges before putting them together. One they were layered, I used gesso and a mask on the tag and did some spattering with the Magicals.

I used one piece  from the Romantic Page Dangles Set. I just created this one simple by adding some flowers and leaves. I colored some cream colored seam binding ribbon with Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays in 2 colors. a

For the Romantic Page Dangle, I heat embossed it using Lindys Embossing powder in Aurora Amethyst. Then just added a few pearls to finish the piece.
