1. Crop a piece of kraft cardstock or patterned paper to 8½” x 11¾” to form the base of the layout.
2. Crop a piece of smooth white cardstock to 8¼” x 11½”. Stick down on the kraft base. Spritz the page with water just in the main area of the layout where the photo and embellishments will sit. Spritz with a peach coloured spray mist. Flick some droplets of the colour over the top too. Set aside and allow to dry.
3. Select the spotty stamp from the Watery Washes Stamp Set and ink with Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. Apply the stamp to the layout in a few places. Next apply the same stamp using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
4. Colour the Flower Bed Border Stamp with Faber-Castell Big Brush Stamper Pens. Try using a different colour for each style of leave. Here I have used Deep Scarlet Red, Scarlet Red and Orange Glaze. Spritz with water and then stamp on an extra piece of smooth white cardstock. Allow the image to dry completely before fussy cutting. Stick down on the layout using a strip of double sided tape just down the centre of the piece.
5. Stamp various other leaves and flowers on the extra white cardstock using a combination of the Big Brush Stamper Pens and the Distress Inks. Ink the Butterfly Note Eclectic Stamp using the Distress Inks, spritz with water and stamp on the extra cardstock. Allow all images to dry before fussy cutting. Add all of these elements along with the photo to the layout.
6. Stamp the Dreams Quote Stamp onto the extra cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink. Fussy cut the words and stick down on the layout replacing the word ‘Beauty’ with lettering.
