There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.

Hi Lovely People,

Trudi with you today sharing something created from the THOUGHTS WANDERINGcollection where the emphasis is on ‘beautiful’.

The larger design element was first fussy cut from the the ‘Sail Away’ patterned paper and then popped aside.  It was later tucked in along the bottom of the photo.

To create the base of the layout – The ‘Postcards’ paper was trimmed and then affixed over the top (lighter side up) of the Sail Away paper. Before attaching add a little distressing to the edges.

Some background altering was added with a 12 x 12 mask and Lindy Stamp Gang sprays. When dry, a little white Gesso was randomly swiped over the top of the misting.

Corners of the photo were framed with rose elements trimmed from Rosette Ornate Frames. Clusters of coordinating blooms from the Thoughts Wandering Mix were added along with a few flowers from Oh So Pretty Packs – Blue, Buttercup and Pink and Country Roses. The pink flower was misted with Plum Glimmer Mist. A pop of colour was added to the buttercup blooms with Dylusions Pure Sunshine Ink Spray and a few Beetroot Country Roses.

Beautiful You Chipboard Words add a touch of sweet sentiment.
