Be Yourself

Hello Everyone and thankyou for joining me again today. I have designed a page using the amazing new Bohemian Bouquet Collection by Denise Boddey.
I have concentrated on the 12x12 papers and design features from the papers for this project. The new decoupage die cuts are fantastic to 'dress' the centrepiece of the page and in addition you will find more of the fabulous chipboard and die cuts that are part of this beautiful collection.

There are so many beautiful options when coordinating this range!


Layer your Snow White cardstock onto your Blue Jay, giving yourself a 6mm border all around. Trim down your patterned 12x12 patterned piece so when you layer it you will have a 3mm Snow white border. Ink and distress the edges and attach flat to create your base.
To create the base of your central feature, cut the panel as pictured from your patterned papers. Tear a piece of Cascade card 1.5 cm larger than the patterned piece. For a softened look, add a piece of muslin, a little larger than the cardstock so you can bunch it up. Attach the cascade and muslin to the centre of your base with 3D. Keep the patterned feature aside for the next step.

Select a range of decoupage pieces and cut the sentiment from your 12x12 patterned pieces.
Arrange and attach the Decoupage pieces around the patterned feature, then attach the whole panel to the muslin base on the centre of your page.

Cut the large Doily die, then cut the centre out for your photo. Ink the edges to give a gradual fading look. Layer the piece over the circular section of your patterned feature, overlapping some of your leaves and flowers.
I have cut the branches into 3 sections and the Moonlit Orchids into 2.

Heat Emboss the Moonlit Orchids with the Glacier White. Warm up the tips with your heat tool, not enough to melt the powder, then rub some of the Blue Pigment powder in. Heat again to set the pigment onto the pieces.
Heat Emboss the Branches with the Peridot.
 As with the Orchids, warm the tips to rub in the Pink pigment, then reset with the heat tool.
 I have also rubbed a little white paint over the whole piece, to blend and soften and coordinate with the Decoupage designs.
Once you have all the chipboard covered attach as pictured. Add your sentiment and fill any spaces with more of the small Decoupage pieces for little pops of colour.
