★ love at first sight {Heartfelt Creations}

May 28, 2014

It is Wednesday, and you know what i love about Wednesdays? I get to share some of my creativity with you my. It is Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and I have a gorgeous layout to share with you using the Antiquity Collection, some of my favorite Heartfelt Creations Dies and some of my favorite chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments.

the photo ( you're wondering maybe?) is my hubby and our grand daughter Ariel, when she was 9 months old. Our daughter in law was on her way to visit her cousin and thought she would pay Grandpa and Grandma Gerber a visit.  Ariel was just learning to crawl and Grandpa had swooped her up cause she was just too cute. and i grabbed this photo.  Ariel will now be three in June and its a photo i felt i needed to scrapbook again.  there are many layers on this project

The background was white washed with gesso, gel medium was used to attach the background chipboard, and gessoed again, template and texture paste as added to the background, lovely layers of paper. chipboard, spellbinder dies for added delicate detail, corrugated cardboard, burlap, are just some of the layers you can see here.

the hash tag love is a perfect size for a title and those incredible detailed chipboard corners add such incredible details to any project. the texture paste down in the right corner there, just adds texture and dimension to this project. I hope you enjoy looking at this beauty, as much as i enjoyed creating it. Until next time, happy scrapping!
