Celebrate the Little Moments by Mel Connell


Welcome back bloggers. I'm so glad that your here again today to have a little look see at what I have created once again using all this Couture Creation goodness. 

Ok, so lets get started. Cut your self one border out of white cardstock using the Chandelier set border die. ink through the die with a coordinating ink colour to your back ground cardstock. 

I tore a piece of the Couture Creations Quick Release Die Paper in half and used some Matt Gel Medium to adhere this to my background cards stock. I made sure I got some crinkles and creases in it to create some texture. Smear some white paint across the background, and add some drops of black ink or watered down paint.

Glue some Fusible film or iridescent paper to a scrap of black cardstock. Cut out three solid Dragonflies and three detailed Dragonflies using the Van Roe Decorative Dies Dragonfly set. Also cut  a Celebrate word using the Celebrate die. Layer the black cardstock detailed Dragonfly on top of the iridescent solid Dragonflies. 

Cut 2 photo mats using the Lotus Filet Die. Add some metallic rub to bring out the detailed dies cutting around the edges. Cut a 12 x 3 inch piece of pattered paper. I used a piece from the Damask Delight Paper pad. 

Arrange all your dies cut elements and also some chipboard pieces and glue everything in place. I've used some great chipboard flowers and frame from Imaginarium Designs. Check out their great products here

As a finishing touch sprinkle some small gems around your layout. 

Thanks once again for stopping by today.
