April Inspiration by Debbie

Hi everyone!  Debbie here with you today to share my April layouts.  Seeing as Spring has just begun I got to thinking about all the beautiful colors of the flowers that will come into bloom and drew from that to create my projects.  I have two layouts using the In The Mood collection and one using the Homespun collection.

"Hushed"
This layout features the In The Mood collection.  I used the Amused paper for the background.  I applied some masking using an apricot paste.  Lots of layering under the photo using the Mellow paper.

I really like the mixture of embossing powder on the floral chipboard.  I mixed Blood Orange and Ivory.  The foliage is a mixture of Seafoam and Green Ivory. The flowers are Apricot Blooms.


Lots of layering with chipboard and here I've placed a flower from the Chesterville Florals.

Another closeup of the mixture of Blood Orange and Ivory embossing powders.

I used the same mixture of Blood Orange and Ivory embossing powders on the title.  Lots of layering under the photo with chipboard and flowers.

"Adore"
This layout also features the In The Mood collection. The background paper is Flirty, and I used Blissful and Mellow to created layers under the photo.  I added some stamping to the background with the Tattered Newsprint and Essential Textures stamps.

I first applied some light pink paste to the background using a rose stencil.  After applying the paste, I sprinkled it with some Pink Pearl Glitter.  The chipboard pieces were embossed with a mixture of Baby Pink and Iridescent Gray embossing powders.   I applied a mixture of Sterling Silver and Mauve Seedlings to the chipboard, flowers and background paper.

The lantern chipboard piece was embossed with a mixture of Iridescent Gray and Pearl embossing powders.  The flowers are from Moody Florals, Moody Blooms and Remnants Florals.

The title was embossed with Baby Pink embossing powder.

"Sweet"
My third layout uses the Homespun collection.  I used the Tea Time paper on the background.

Lots of layering under the photo using the Homespun Printed Chipboard and Picturesque (side b), Homespun Minis, Calling Cards and Crafty papers.
All of the chipboard pieces were embossed with a mixture of Pretty In Pink, Baby Pink and Ivory embossing powders.  I stamped some flowers and embossed them with Baby Pink and fussy cut them.  I used a couple of flowers from the Moody Blooms.

The title was embossed with Baby Pink and if you look to the right of the photo you can see the stamped and embossed flowers.
