Adore You

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  This layout was created using the Mon Amour collection by Graphic 45.  I love this collection and it's color palette.  I love the color combo of black and pink and this collection has plenty of it!

I went ultra girly with this page filled with flowers, pockets and tags.  I cut a circle in the center of the black script page and adhered it to a pink patterned base using pieces of cardboard.  

I added lace under the top layer and a circle of pearls to the top to accentuate the shape of the circle.  I matted the photo on cardboard to create space below the photo for flowers and embellishments.

Here you can see the the beautiful title piece which is a new line of chipboard from Michael's Craft store.  I painted it ivory and once it was dry I used Dusty Concord Distress Ink to create an ombre effect.  I did this by apply a heavier layer of ink on the bottom and then applied less pressure, and ink, as I moved closer to the top.

Robin, I don't know how you do it (everything perfectly cut and arranged. . . as in the perfect circle and surrounding beads). Love the black background and lovely arrangement. Happy belated Mothers Day.

This layout is beautiful! I wish I could look at the paper and visualize what you are seeing. I love the black and pink. Great job lady!
