Pretty as a Picture using Simple Stories Heart by Kerryn Fry

Good morning all.
This week I've created my second page with the beautiful collection
Simple Stories Heart
This gorgeous photo of my niece matched the colours perfectly
and she looks super cute with her little pout. 

The background effect has been created in layers on the white cardstock base.
I've started with the clear packaging and spritzed with water effect.
First Scattered Straw Distress Oxide, let it dry
and then added touches of Fossilized Amber over the top. 
The next layer is using Fossilized Amber applied through 
Then using Evergreen Bough, I have randomly added flowers 
with the daisy stencil from the same collection.
The final layer is splatters of watered down Evergreen Bough Distress Paint

I have used black cardstock as a base for the photo,
then added smaller pieces of patterned paper in layers under the photo.
Some 2x2 pieces have been lifted with foam tape.
The photo has also been mounted with foam tape for added dimension.

There are multiple 2 Crafty pieces added to the layout.
The 2 Crafty Twiggy Branch has been cut into smaller pieces
and covered with Evergreen Bough Distress Paint.
For a little detail, I have added a centre line to each leaf
with light tough of Picket Fence.
The rainbow is from the 2 Crafty Weather Bits pack,
I've hand painted it with Distress Paints 
and added Dimensional Magic just to the clouds.

The 2 Crafty Flowers have been painted with Distress Paints,
using Evergreen Bough, Scattered Straw and Picket Fence.
Once dry, they have been stamped using Kaisercraft Tiny Dots 
and finished with a layer of Dimensional Magic.
The centres of the flowers have been cut from patterned paper.
I have used embellishments from the Chipboard and Cardstock sheets.
Adding the small chipboard hearts and flower sprays
and then the banner, words and tab stickers. 

The small polaroid frame is from the 2 Crafty Assorted Polaroid Frames.
It has been painted with Hickory Smoke Distress Paint,
then I've backed it with patterned paper
and sealed with Dimensional Magic.
The 2 Crafty title Pretty as a Picture was covered with swipes of Hickory Smoke
and then finished with a coat of Dimensional Magic.

I had lots of fun creating this page,
always enjoy getting a little messy.

Have a fabulous weekend
