Welcome to Creative Embellishments blog post. This Beautiful Day page is my eldest son’s family in a group photo. Lots of amazing layers of paper all with inked edges and amazing naked chipboard accents and finished off with foamiran flowers and leaves.

I start a page with lots of layers with fun prints, stripes and flowers… some light and some dark for depth and dimension.
Then I place the photo and some accents in proposed positions. For this layout I also die cut outer circle accents to finish the circular chipboard frame.
Lots of branch chipboard accents along with “Beautiful Day” title and a butterfly. All these pieces were left in natural naked state. If matched the papers perfectly.
In the close ups you will see more details. Here is a lace butterfly accent.
Super clustered section.
White lace accent border in the layers.
Die cut accent with neutral tone paper.
Amazing circular frame around the photo and lots of surrounding accents.
Using Heartfelt Creation floral dies and leaves I cut them out of white foamiran.
The flowers are coloured using Distress Oxide and a finger sponge to apply the ink.
I then use the heat gun to shape the flowers and leaves….
it’s so easy .. just heat them up.
Flower layers are glued together, pearl stamens added and glued in clusters with leaves.
Another small cluster.
More close ups for your viewing.
Here is the central section of the page with all the accents but the photo is still front and centre.
Be sure to visit the store to view these and so many more products.
Thanks for stopping by…. see you again soon.
