June by Rhonda

As the cold weather starts to set in, memories of the snow
and my daughter fill my mind and it is with these memories
a layout was born.
Carrying on from thoughts of my daughter my second project
was done thinking of her and the distance between us that is a wall...


Starting with some lovely papers I layered them and after
trimming the top sheet its edges were distressed.
Additionally, I cut a few slots and rolled the edges to create an
opening that I backed with some Retro Squares.

The stars on the paper tied in well with the Snowflakes
that I stencilled with shimmer paste.

From here it was out with another type of Retro Squares to provide
a base for the photo's that were simply matted with cardstock.


After a little journaling it was time to embellish and for this a
single flower was utilised to tie the photo's together and some
little blue & green crystals to add some more sparkle.

Out with the Chippies to finish it off in the way of a sprinkling of
white Stars and embossed Hearts.
Being her first time experiencing snow it was truely an Unforgettable
time and Scrap Words were again able to capture the moment
in the way of a title.

Starting off I grabbed some modelling paste and set it aside to
dry a little in the sun...Doing this creates a thicker paste with
more body that allows more depth and.

Applying this paste to a canvas board over the lovely
Bricks Stencil with my favourite metal spatula achieved the
heights and texture I wanted.
I love how the Scrapmatts stencils help me take advantage of
this technique and cant wait to apply it on more.

From here I applied a series of stamps about the board and then
over-sprayed with a collection of Spray Mists.

Since many of my pieces have flowers I thought TH could help me
again so out came some die-cuts and I coloured them
to complement the background.


My Scrapmatts stash was then raided to compliment the
flowers with Leaves as well as help create the Ornate Frame
centre piece with an angelic set of Wings and finally with
a Vine across the top.
