We will always Remember- Heartfelt Creations

Wednesdays, i just love Wednesdays, they are my second favorite day of the week! I am continuing with the Everyday Heros collection today from Heartfelt Creations, and I have a layout to share with you.

This has got to be one of my favorite collections and im sure it will be yours too.

This layout was accepted to be published in the Fall 2015 Issue of
Canadian Scrapbooker.

The photo is of my husband and his siblings and was taken in ( the photo said -1970) I created many layers to this layout added mists and ink for detail and dimension and the Botanical Rose were the perfect floral to add. 

here are some detail shots

What an awesome collection Right! Dont you Love it! I sure did.

Go along pencil line with vintage photo distress ink and blend a bit of teal zeal very lightly. Do the same around the frame line along pencil lines place a line of art institue dries clear around pencil line, sprinkle beads, do same for around tags and where flowers would go. SPrinkle cowboy glaze by dropping with brush very randomly. when dry, attach frame; adhere photo layers as shown, attach flowers and assemble to your liking. tuck in strips and tag layers to your desire. if you feel you need to add more platters with ink, just be sure to cover the photo with paper towel to protect the image. Have fun.
