My Beauty


There are so many beautiful paper colletions on the market today.  I loved the earth tones found in the gorgeous "Hope Chest" collection from Pink Paislee.  I altered my photo to give it a sepia tone to coordinate with the papers.

The design is inspired by the May Dusty Attic sketch by Belinda Spencer. 

I used Cyclone Wire (DA0737) chipboard which I inked with vintage photo Distress Ink. 

I createc coiled paper by wetting a 1/4" strip of paper and wrapping it around a pencil.  Once dry, I tucked it around the flowers.  This technique was inspired by the uber talented Lisa Valentine.

I colored my chipboard letters using an E15 Copic marker.  I then added clear crackle varnish to create a beautiful shiny finish.
