Just Be You by Lesa Bird

Hi It's Lesa here and today I have created my layout using with Couture Creations The Harmony Embossing Folders and Secret Treasures Decorative Dies.

I designed this sketch for today's Layout

Firstly I embossed a piece of white cardstock using the Rainbow Wave embossing folder, I added a little colour here and there with a marker,
 and rubbed the edges with ink using Couture Creations sponge dauber

 next up I embossed a piece of red Core'dinations cardstock using the Bird Of Paradise embossing folder, and lightly sanded it using a Couture CreationsSanding Block


From the Secret Treasure decorative die collection I  cut one each of the
Tabbed Journal Tab and Classic Chevron from Core'dinations Glitter Silk cardstock. 
I then ran the journal tab diecut through the  Zig Zag embossing folder and rubbed over the top with a black alcohol ink pad

I die cut 4 circles using the 4 smallest  circle nesting die from a plastic soft drink bottle, and coloured them with a permanent marker 

 Then using tweezers heat the edges of the plastic circles over a candle flame, being careful not to over heat you just want the edges to melt to give some shape to create a one of a kind flower.

Once you are happy with the shape of your circles layer them together and adhere together with Couture Creations Craft Glue Spots

Add some spritz to the background cardstock finish off by layering everything onto your base page in your style.
have fun
