I am here to share with you a LO I did, using some of this months new releases. As usual I love them all, amazing job Jill!!!!

The chipboard I used on this LO:

  • Flower Grass (2013007)
  • Flutterby M Fantasy Small (2013016),
  • Wordlet ,Spread your Wings Flutterby (2013023)
  •  Stencil,Leafy Swirls (2013029).

Because I do so much layering, I have a hard time fitting stencils in. So on this LO, I planned it out and made sure I could use a stencil & still have my layers.

I first used a dark green paint for the leaves & a pastel yellow for the flowers. When that dried, I applied rock candy crackle, let dry, then rubbed in different shades of chalk, going over the edges to shadow the leaves & flowers, then I added brads into the flower centers…..

 I stained them the Flower grass and wordlet with vintage photo distress stain, then used the same yellow or green as I did on the stencil.

On the flutterby, leaves & flowers, I also applied a layer of rock candy, then once it dried I rubbed in chalk. For the circles on the flutterby, I placed jump rings,then little studs,and applied liquid accents…..

I also inserted little brads into the center of the flowers on the flower grass.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look…..Rachelle

  1. This is such a gorgeous page Rachelle!! I adore how your stenciled flowers look like sunflowers – my favorite!!! 🙂 I also really like how you were able to make the butterfly chippie look like the one on your photo, amazing work there! Love the pops of magenta for contrast as well – just a lovely page to look at.

  2. What a great color combo! Looks fantastic!
