TGIF everybody!!! Today, I have a layout that I created with the Scraps Of Elegance September Kit~Mary's Song along with items from the Reneabouquets.com Store and Reneabouquets Etsy Shop to share with you before I head off and into the weekend. I used a photo that I took of a little robin that had built her nest in my rose bush. My husband, David and I just recently became empty nesters and this layout was a reminder of this time and attitude that we need to keep during this time in our lives.
I started with layers of the kit papers, then did lots of technique work using items from my shops.
I distressed and inked the edges using the Tim Holtz Mini Distress Ink Set #11 (I used the Tea Dye Ink), an then I used the Burlap Layering Stencil and TH Texture Paste, Inking it with ink and then misting over the top of the texture and letting it drip.
I colored the Blue Fern Chipboard frame from the kit and then layered my photo in, along with flowers from the kit and from this month's Floral Add On and some cheesecloth for texture.
The Bricks are chipboard pieces from last month's kit , and the quote was cut from some of the stickers that were in the kit to suit my layout.
I used some of the loose bricks and coated them with sand paste.
Here you can see some close ups of all the textures and techniques.
The Prima Nests are an item that I carry, (They will be back in stock September 30th). The Crochet Lace 002 and Shabby Pink Roses Butterflies are also Reneabouquets Items.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and find the time to create something unique and beautiful this weekend!! Hugs ~Renea
