Your Time to Shine by Sue Smyth

Hi Bloggers
Today I wanted to share a layout that demonstrates
that Magnolia lane can suit stronger colours.
Often we tend to stick with the paler pastels in the range
but quite deliberately I included some accents of stronger colour.
Like the rosehips for instance, they help bring bolder 
colours, this time I have used a burgundy/ pomegranate as my
main  colour...
I hope you give it a go, following the step by steps below.

I love the tassels, I have wanted a tassel die for 
years, so I had to include them in Magnolia lane.
Here I show you how you can use them for just
about any colour tassel.

The paper magnolias take on the strong colour
readily, sprinkle with a little glitter and they highlight
the rose hip perfectly.

Add a little Distress ink to the ends of the leaves
for a simple detail that just make the leaves pop!.

A wonderful Imaginarium Designs phrase, is painted with 
matt black paint.

The resins are great the way the are, but add
a small amount of gold paint for a burnished 

The tassels are cut from white cardstock and then
double embossed with gold embossing powder.
Then colour the insert, whatever colour 
you like and replace inside the tassel.
Use a little dimensional magic to hold the 
both together.

To start cut 3cm strips of patterned paper, distress edges
 score both sides at .5 cm and fold to form a channel.

Cut all of your elements and layer then on the page to 
see if they are going to fit and the 
composition works.

Tear a V in the white cardstock, and then
flick with red or pomegranate glimmer mist.
Make sure some of the flicks radiate
out from the center. 

When you are happy with this, adhere white 
cardstock to Floral Fancy patterned paper.
and add the trimmed paper strips to the 
page. Butt them up against each other to 
form a kind of pin tuck effect.

Spray paper magnolia with water.

Then dip into a puddle of burgundy or pomegranate mist,
rotating the petals until they have 
grabbed enough ink.

This will colour the outside petals only and 
is called wicking.
Spray a small amount of spray adhesive onto 
each of them, and sprinkle with white glitter.

When dry, colour stamens with a yellow marker.

Die cut leaves with Rose cutting die, in pale green
cardstock, add green  ink to the ends of the 

Smear gold paint over the resin element.

To finish, assemble all of your elements .

Happy Crafting
