Dear friends,

Inspired by a few challenges, i have made a layout with my favourite photo. 
I rarely use orange in crafts. Got a chance to use orange colour.

Steps involved in making this layout
  • Coated the layout base with Sakura white gesso and allowed it to dry.
  • Used Life Shapes stencils from Crafter's Workshop to create a stenciled pattern using Ranger distress inks for the background
  • Further used Itsybitsy flourish stencil and Sakura Modeling Paste to create textures
  • Stamped with Altenew wild hibiscus stamp and coloured with staedtler water colour pencils & sakura waterbrush. 
  • Added washitape,pattern paper,microbeads to beautify the layout
  • Small butterflies are from Gracielle digital stamps
  • Sentiment is printed.
Hope you like it.
