First Creative Embellishment DT Post

Hi there everyone! I am so happy to be sharing my first layout with Creative Embellishments!!! 
 Well, as you can see - I am a purist so I really interpreted the photo also helps that I LOVE everything shabby chic and the color pink!

I decided to use a "vintage" photo of my mother and I surrounded her with a lovely rose garden.  With each piece of chipboard piece, I put two coats of gesso. Then I used paint and inked the edges. To finish them,  I gave them a Crackle Accents finish. I used the gorgeous CE Flourish 15 (upper left of the photo)
 and Flourish 19 (lower right of the photo.) Additionally, I used the CE Photo Booth Film Strip and backed it with paper and filled it in with Crackle Accents on the bottom and left side of the page.
  Lastly, I used the butterfly from the Flourish Butterfly Set 2 using the same techniques.
I hope you play along and I can't wait to see what you create!!!

  1. Oh Lainie this really is gorgeous! I absolutely love how you treated the chipboard pieces and all the feminine accents on this are perfect. The photo of your mom - Wow - such a beautiful woman (just like you).
