Little Wishes {Spring Layout}

 
Hi there!  It's me Gabrielle here with you all again today to share my second project for the month with you as Cheery Lynn's guest designer!  I had a lot of fun using the Clock w/Angel Wings die last week in a steampunk design.  But I thought it would be cool to show how versatile this die is for other designs as well.  In my l/o above I changed up the look of the clock a little by adding some flower accents to the middle of the clock design, playing up a more feminine design for the page.

 
I used the Sweet Williams die to make the the cream color flowers in the center of the clock.  I created a flower bud for the center using a couple of the smallest cuts from this flower die and then layered a few of the next sizes up (giving them a little water misting and a wrinkle) for the other layers.
 
I made a heart embellishment for the page using the Celtic heart die on white cardstock and then with a pencil marked out the heart design on some patterned paper from Maja Design to create an underlayer for the heart.

 
I often like to create a counter balance on my page design, for this page I put a lattice design in the top left corner.  I used the Lattice 2 die and gave it a random angle cut to appear like broken lattice.  I then finished the design with more of the Sweet Williams blooms and using portions of the Ivy Corner Flourish dies.
 
 
TIP:  I wanted to attach my lattice so that it stands away from the page a bit, but felt that adhesive foam dots can be a little tricky to apply to finer cuts and might be a little to thick.  So I used some 3D paint like Perfect Pearls to the back of the die cut piece.  When dry, I added some adhesive to the dried perfect pearls and stuck it to my page.  This gave my lattice just enough 3D effect that I was going for.

I hope you enjoyed my project for today!  I look forward to sharing some more fun projects with you all in the weeks to come! xo
