Hello, Creative Embellishments fans!
Sandi Clarkson here with you today sharing a Home Decor piece that I made for a friend of mine. She does (well, did) a lot of traveling and going to Wales was one of her 2017 trips. Because she is SO good to give me great photos to scrap, I like to give them back to her in the form of a gift .. this time an altered Home Decor Large Leaf from Creative Embellishments.
Last Fall I altered one in more autumn tones and used a photo of my granddaughter. You can see it Here. This time I wanted to go a bit greener on the leaf to coordinate with all the lush green in the photograph.
This top corner chipboard piece is the lovely Lucky heart piece. My initial plan was to paint these chipboard pieces black but I went ahead and painted them gold because I was creating on St Patricks Day and it seemed like a good fit! Ha! Afterwards, I went back over all the chipboard with black ink which did help make them more dominant but they do still glisten!
For texture I’ve used microbeads and sisal from 13 Arts along with my florals from 49 and Market. I also love how my crackle paste has gorgeous icing swirls!
My title piece is the Follow Your Heart Title. My design evolved around knowing that my flattest surface area was where my title piece would have to go unless I backed it with a substrate. Just keep that in mind if you do something similar.
