Special Memories by Lesa Bird


Hello and welcome August
Come with me today on a journey, to Couture Creations Secret Garden Collection, along the way we'll visit with a couple oldies but goodies, Everyday Essentials, Kalini, and Secret Treasures collections.
 So off we go

From the Kalini Collection, cut a full set of Gears 1 and Gears 2, from white cardstock, randomly bush on some gesso, allow it to dry, and them spritz with 2 or 3 different inks, this will help them look a little rustic

The Kalini Picket Fence, I cut 2 of these and raised them with small piece of foam tape, and placed it along the front of my photo, from the Secret Treasures collection, I cut a set of Bird Song die, placing them on the fence and around the gear cluster, topping the birds with Dimensional Magic

Using the 6x6 Hearts Ease paper pad, choose 3 sheets, cutting from each one,
a set of the Kalini, Falling Blossom's, Layer each set using the Turbo Glue Pen, once dry, spritz with water and bend or pinch each petal to get 3 different looking flowers from the same die, add a touch of bling to the centers using Seaspray Gemstones

Cut 3 of the Everyday Essentials, Classic Leaf, spritz with Water, and then press into the palm of your hand, this will give the leaf shape.

Use one Kalini Stained Glass Butterfly, and a set of Everyday Essentials Edith and Baby, here I've layered all 3 to create a super butterfly, using the seaspray gemstones on the body

From the Secret Garden Collection cut one of the Layered Butterfly, add Seaspray Gemstones to the body

Also from Secret Garden cut a few Butterfly Flourish, here I've used the butterfly as the dot on my i, the rest are just short cuts of the flourish which I've used with  my flower and gear clusters

Layer everything onto your page to suit you style, and have fun, but most of all enjoy creating
