Nice To Meet You

Hi there, how’s it going? I’m posting a layout featuring the Oh So Lovely collection for Artfull Crafts today.  I have already mentioned before that it’s a very pretty & ultra feminine collection.  My last Oh So Lovely post has the specialty die cut gloss paper as my base, & today I’ll be showing you my second one which has a plain cardstock instead.

“Nice To Meet You”

Nice To Meet You

For this page I’ve used 6 different sheets from the paper pad for the background.  I’ve cut them up into a variety of small pieces & lightly layered some gesso on top.


I then added some texture paste with a damask template.  When completely dried, I’ve layered 3 different colors on it: Prima Cotton Candy Color Bloom Spray, Grape Ape Chalkboard Mist & Periwinkle Bouquet Glimmer Mist both by Tattered Angels.


I’ve also added a few die cut pieces from the collectables & paper pad.


The flower cluster is added to the right side of the photo which consist of the following delicious flowers: Zva Pink Graceful Roses, Jasmine Paper Flower, Kaisercraft Sea Breeze Paper Blooms & Prima Marketing flowers.


More touches were added to the background with Kaisercraft texture stamp & The Crafter’s workshop stencil with some dark purple ink.


It’s all finished off with alpha stickers for the title, green pearls, a dragonfly chipboard & some journaling.  I don’t have the best handwriting in the world but I really wanted to document the story behind this gorgeous photo.

This is the second time I’ve used purple on my layouts & I’m very pleased how it turned out. This color gave this layout an extra lift & it goes so well altogether.  I’m not scared of purple anymore…woohoo! Do check out the Oh So Lovely collection here.  Thanks for taking the time to drop in & enjoy your week. 🙂
