This is a layout I did recently and I have to say there is a couple of things I think worked out really well. I started with a Heidi Swapp embossed board and I layered about 100 Glimmer Mists over it and then Rub and Buff. It came up really well, probably better in real life.
These flowers are the "#1", "Star-of-the-Day", "Holy-Moly! That worked!" part of the layout I love!! They are calico cut with the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die. Glimmer Misted and layered up to make 3D flowers and then just arranged in a little posy!!
Mmmmm, yum!! Get ready to see these flowers around a bit more, in fact you'll know my work from one hundred paces... I can hear it now... "Oh Megan and those bloody calico tattered flowers. Is she ever gonna get over them!?" Nah! Well not until the next fantastic thing comes along, LOL!!!
