Adore you mum layout

This LO is of my beautiful Mum on my wedding day and was completed using the gorgeous new Imaginisce To Love and Cherish papers.

I absolutely love black and white so the theme for this month at my2angels of Black and White suited not only me, but also these papers perfectly.

The heart in the middle is the Scrapware filigree chipboard heart which was first painted white and then embossed with clear embossing powder.

Since completing this LO though Tracy has got in some cool new embossing supplies including the Ranger Embossing Puffs which are gorgeous and give a flocked effect. Your Scrapware heart will come in two bits – the solid bit at the back, and the matching filigree heart for the front.

I simply covered the solid heart in the polka dot Imaginisce paper, then tied the painted and embossed filigree heart over the top with black ribbon. You can bling up the heart too by adding some sparkly stickles over the top and adhere some rhinestones amongst the filigree pattern.

To carry on with the heart theme I also attached a gorgeous little silver heart locket and mini key charm to the bottom part of the ribbon. (these are the free gift with your first purchase in July)

Spritz some pink stem flowers and Canna lilies with glimmermist and arrange them around the heart adhering them with strong adhesive. To finish off the LO I then added the rhinestone title, some mini pearls, and ruled a very fine border around the outside of my photo and extended it down onto the white patterned paper. This just ties the whole LO together and frames the photo.

Another cool thing to try is grab yourself one of the Ranger Ink blending tools, and using black ink distress the edges of the white polka dot patterned paper.

There is a tutorial on ink blending tool in the Tutorial section under Resources of my2angels if you haven’t used one of these must have tools before! I did one thing a little differently on this LO too, instead of adding journaling to the main page, I chose to journal on a little tag, distress the edges with pink ink and the ink blending tool, and then attach it to the top left hand corner of the LO using a brad, organza ribbon and one of the flowers cropped from the patterned paper. Therefore the tag can be pulled to the front of the LO if you wish to read the journaling, then simply tucked back in behind the LO.
