Hi Everyone Kerrie here
I am back with another post for Couture Creations Blog

Using the new Hearts Ease Collection along with some of my favourite
Couture Creations 2015 release dies.

The photos on my layout are one of my life long friend's granddaughter, as soon as I saw Sarah post these photos of little Grace I knew I had to scrap them using Hearts Ease papers.
So a quick email to Sarah asking if it was ok and here we are,
I am sure you will all agree Grace is adorable tending to her pansies.

I have kept my layout fairly simple as I want Grace to shine

I started off die cutting 1 x the Evergreen die from the Background Savvy collection, i so love this die it is just so versatile. I also cut 1 x Simone's Style lace border die from the Amaryllis collection and 1 x Happy from the Happy Birthday Title from the Kalini collection

Using Quick Release Die paper look how easily the die comes away from the die and all the bits just drop out

Next I used the Quick Release Die paper as a mask and sprayed gold mist on my base paper and then set it aside to dry (you can dry off using Couture Creations Heat Tool if you are pressed for time)

 Next I grabbed a selection of Couture Creations Flowers

and sprayed them using a special mix of colours to get the right colour for my page. Again I set aside to dry.
TIP; I spritz my flowers with water first so that the colours blend and to help them dry off quickly I place them on top of my Daylight lights so the heat from the bulbs helps them to dry off 

I cut 3 strips from Pansies in a Line patterned paper and cut them to different lengths and then distress and inked the edges

I then layered everything onto my base 

I cut the Evergreen die cut into pieces and placed them around my page I left some of the bits in the die to add some feature to the leaves  

I used a die cut from the Ephemera pack and cut it in to to use as a embellishment  on the top and bottom corners

here is another die cut from the Ephemera pack for Sarah to add some Journaling

My flowers were too bright for my page so I toned them down with some gold spray painted onto the petals with a fine paint brush.

 here is a closer look at the sprayed background

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and take some time to play today
