Well we are very pleased to bring you this fabulous step x step project which we think you will also love. If you’ve always wondered how Jeni creates all those gorgeous layers and intriguing details, well here’s you chance to learn with this truly eye-catching layout.

Here’s what Jeni had to say:

“I love mixing it up with different techniques using mixed media to alter the flowers and background to create a splash of colour. I had the idea that I wanted to show a mix of techniques with a variety flowers. So I’ve embossed, stamped, inked, glittered, used perfect pearls, Liquid pearls, gesso and made 3d ones. All are altered. Created the background using, a mask, mists, gesso and splatters of paint. I hope you like it.”


Products used: Blossoms – Airlie, Esperance, Byron & Avoca, Cutie Pies – Teal & Tangerine, Taneisha, Oak leaves – green, Enchanted – Sweet Dreams, Fairy Floss – mixed, Marguerite – blush, Magestic – Gemma, TSC – Cosy Christmas – Family Xmas.


Step 1. Begin with a selection of Manor House Flowers flowers to alter.

Step 3. Background was created misting a mask, paint splatters and gesso.

Step 4. Start by building up the background layers.

Step 5 & 5a.  I used a mix of flowers, sizes and colours.


Step 6. Altered flowers give the illusion of added texture and depth.


Step 7. Create 3d flowers by using smaller petals for centres.


Step 8. Add extra embellishment touches to create a finished layout.
