This will go down as one of my all-time favorite paper collections. Graphic 45's French Country stole my heart. I used one of my photos from a trip to France to capture the *French Country*.
Fussy cutting, popping up and stencils from Stencil Girl added to my layout.
A perfect little chicken and feather from Stencil Girl fit right in to this theme.
The flowers were fussy cut and layered.
The Graphic 45 tag was stamped with
a chicken wire stamp from Hampton Arts
and then edged with a Pen-Touch gold leaf pen.
May Arts ribbon topped it off.
More fussy cutting and layering.
I like to use chipboard to back my layering rather than using pop-ups.
The chipboard gives the layering more body.
Before adhering to pieces, I edge the chipboard with black ink
to make the chipboard less noticeable when peeking from behind.
The paper edges were inked with Ranger's Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.
Another bit of fussy cutting of the crown.
LOVE the Graphic 45 keys!
I use Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive. It's the best I've found for both
paper arts & metals. Amazing hold without wrinkling paper!
What an honor it is to work with the beautiful
